Illinois Builder Finds Improved Workability with LP SmartSide

In a recently published case study, LP featured customer Nitti Development and their use of LP® SmartSide® Cedar Texture Shake Siding. Located in Elmhurst, Illinois, Nitti Development has been building upscale homes in the Chicago suburbs for many years.

In early 2014, Nitti Development started work on the Berteau Development, a neighborhood of 56 single-family modern homes with a timeless, classic aesthetic. They used LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding products, including the LP SmartSide Cedar Texture Shake Siding because of its proven durability and vast variety of paint colors.

 

In planning, Nitti Development co-owner Joe Nitti identified three priorities for the Berteau Development—workability, durability and design. Before using LP SmartSide products Nitti used fiber cement, which he says is “very difficult to touch up and shows a lot of waves when you install it.” He explored LP SmartSide as an alternative, having heard about their exceptional durability and workability from other trusted builders.

Read the full case study to see how LP SmartSide Trim & Siding performed on the Berteau Development and why Joe Nitti plans to use LP SmartSide for other upcoming projects.
