Increase Business with the LP® BuildSmart Preferred Contractor Program

With new projects typically leveling off near the holidays, December and January are ideal months for spending time improving the financial health of your construction business and discovering new ways to get profitable customer leads. 

If you’re a loyal LP® SmartSide® customer, one way of improving your business is through our LP® BuildSmart Preferred Contractor Program. This tailor-made program for remodelers offers valuable training and marketing support ­to produce new business leads.

There are three levels of the program: Pro, Expert and Master. As members work their way through training programs and technical support, they’ll “level up” and are offered additional benefits and tools, as well as higher cash rebates.

Brent Taylor, owner of O.C. Taylor Smart Exterior Solutions in Raleigh, North Carolina is a LP BuildSmart Program Master-Level member. He says, “I recommend the LP BuildSmart Program to any remodeler for the lead generation, technical support, marketing assistance and hands-on product training it provides myself and my crew. The program has increased my business tenfold.”

Taylor also uses the LP BuildSmart Program smartphone app, which is especially convenient when turning in LP SmartSide product purchases into LP BuildSmart Program points. Taylor highlights the convenience of the app saying, “You can easily redeem points and retrieve homeowner leads right from your phone. The app also increases efficiency by being able to quickly access all LP BuildSmart Program needs on-the-spot.”

Kyle Stumpenhorst, owner of Rural Renovators in Dixon, Illinois, just recently became a LP BuildSmart Program member. He says, “This program is just another benefit to using LP SmartSide products. It’s for any pro who wants to build their business and reputation.” He continues on, “I’d highly recommend joining if you’re a loyal LP customer.”

All in all, with the LP BuildSmart Program you will…

  • Get Rewarded: Turn your LP SmartSide product purchases into LP BuildSmart Program points that can be redeemed for tools, sales and estimating services, and co-branded marketing support.
  • Get More Leads: Members are eligible to be listed in the LP SmartSide online contractor locator where homeowners can directly request quotes.
  • Get Support: All LP BuildSmart Program members are trained by our team of professional installation contractors and have access to a program administrator to maximize participation benefits.
