Media Spotlight on An LP BuildSmart® Pro

Brent Taylor, owner of the O.C. Taylor remodeling company in Raleigh, North Carolina, recently had a starring role on the Lifetime Channel’s popular home improvement show Designing Spaces.

The program detailed how Brent successfully re-sided a 108-year-old home in Wilmington, North Carolina with LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding. The original siding was peeling in many places and showed signs of rot. Brent’s customers were looking for a siding replacement that was durable enough to withstand Wilmington’s strong coastal storms yet match the charm of the original traditional wood siding.

The perfect replacement choice was LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding – and you can see Brent’s story on the Designing Spaces website.

Brent is a Master-Level member of the LP BuildSmart® Preferred Contractor Program, which provides him with LP product training, maximum cash rebates, co-marketing support, exclusive lead generation and much more. As a remodeler loyalty program, the LP BuildSmart program rewards those members that work hard. LP SmartSide re-side product purchases can be turned into LP BuildSmart points redeemable for tools, sales and estimating services and co-branded marketing support. 

“With its quality leads and great training, the LP BuildSmart program has really taken my business to the next level,” says Taylor. “It really helps me save money on installation costs and marketing materials.” 

LP BuildSmart members at every level – Pro, Expert and Master – are eligible to be listed in the LP SmartSide online contractor locator where homeowners can directly request a re-siding quote. They’re also eligible for an LP SmartSide-branded website where they can market their services, upload job photos and post customer reviews.

The lead generation capabilities help you identify and vet new customers. Earlier this year, LP rolled out a new LP BuildSmart app that helps members manage this from their phone when on the go or on the jobsite.

You may not get featured on Designing Spaces, but the LP BuildSmart program can benefit your business immediately. Apply for membership today and start enjoying the program’s many rewards.
