New Case Study: Residential Application of LP® SolidStart® LVL for Strength and Durability in Modern Coastal Homes
We recently added a new case study and Signature Series video to our online literature portfolio. This latest installment focuses on a custom home framing company in Del Mar, California, and their use of LP® SolidStart® LVL.
Acevedo Construction began framing jobs on two oceanfront properties with contemporary qualities such as long straight lines, sharp angles and demanding finishes. In order to achieve the modern aesthetics and heavy load requirements, Acevedo set out to find the highest quality framing product on the market.
His dealer recommended LP SolidStart LVL to provide strength, stiffness and long lengths in the custom homes. He also depended on LP sales representative Ryan Mitchell, who was involved in the design phase and the bidding process and was also on the job site.
Acevedo installed LP SolidStart LVL throughout both houses in the roof, floor and walls. The long length of the LVL was perfect for the long spans throughout the home.
“The installation process was very easy,” said Joseph Acevedo, president of Acevedo Construction. “We were able to save labor time since we did not have to go back and adjust the LVL. There was no movement or shifting of the beams.”
He has since been awarded new jobs after bringing potential customers by the two Del Mar job sites to demonstrate the dimensional strength and stiffness of LP SolidStart LVL.
