As a busy remodeler, it’s one thing to use LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding products because they are durable, look great and install easily.
But it’s another to use LP SmartSide products on your own home because they are durable, look great and install easily.
If you follow Rural Renovators on Instagram or YouTube, you know Kyle Stumpenhorst. He’s been working in remodeling his entire life, including ownership of Rural Renovators for the past 12 years. Located in Franklin Grove, Illinois – which is about the midway point between Chicago and Davenport, Iowa – Stumpenhorst’s company specializes in long-lasting post frame structures including barns, storage buildings, work offices and residential.
When Stumpenhorst’s own home needed TLC on the outside, he partnered with the LP SmartSide Trim & Siding team. “A lot of products look good, but I wanted something that will last.” You can see highlights from Stumpenhorst’s LP SmartSide project on LP’s Instagram channel.
Building contractors and renovators know why LP SmartSide siding goes up faster, for example:
“Time is money,” said Stumpenhorst. “On a project for yourself, you’re not making money—you’re spending it. I didn’t want to hire a big crew. With this LP engineered wood siding product, I was able to work with it mainly by myself. It makes sense for me.”
Stumpenhorst continued, “With LP SmartSide products, you’re going to get a product that’s going to be quick and easy to install, but also it’s going to last a long time giving you less callbacks; therefore, a better product.”
