LP Building Solutions Helping Military Families

LP Building Solutions has joined forces with Operation FINALLY HOME to help deserving veterans live in a home that’s mortgage-free and customized to their needs. LP Building Solutions is providing maintenance-free LP Elements® Performance Fencing to help protect property and offer privacy for veterans and their families. 

Operation FINALLY HOME helps provide homes and home modifications to America’s military heroes and the widows of fallen soldiers. Since 2005 the group has worked on 250 projects, serving 171 veterans and 477 spouses and children.

“We are so proud to support Operation FINALLY HOME,” said Louie Escobedo, product manager – Fencing, LP Building Solutions. “This is a small way to thank these heroes for their service and sacrifice.” LP Building Solutions has supported Operation FINALLY HOME for nearly a decade.

Because veterans may have physical and emotional limitations, they have an extra special need to live in a home with easy maintenance and ensured privacy.  

LP Elements Performance Fencing is the only engineered wood fence on the market and is the only fencing product that offers superior durability to wood and vinyl with low maintenance and a natural-looking wood texture. It’s available in four prefinished colors, and since it’s been tested in some of the harshest conditions we know it’s ideal for helping military families as it’s one less thing to maintain. 

Working with Operation FINALLY HOME, we’ve proven that LP Elements Performance Fencing offers several benefits for all homeowners, especially veterans, including:

Low maintenance

  • No need to stain every year
  • Allows for potential cost and labor savings

Durability

  • No bending, warping or twisting like with softwood—limiting potential replacements
  • Endures harsh weather—from high winds and high humidity to freeze/thaw cycles and punishing UV heat
  • Stands up to playing children, even hitting the fence with baseballs up to 84mph!

Attractive protection and privacy

  • Enhances curb appeal and property values
  • Available in four natural color options

LP Building Solutions is excited to continue partnering with Operation FINALLY HOME, helping to provide veterans and their families with strong, solid homes that they can rely on for years to come.
