Indiana Developer Becovic Chooses the Advantages of LP Products
by Amy Lindholm, October 6, 2016
Contractors and homeowners love LP® SmartSide® engineered wood siding options because they are beautiful, easy to install and come in a wide range of colors and textures. The developer of a new luxury apartment community in Indianapolis was attracted to LP SmartSide Trim & Siding products for many of the same reasons.
The Preserve at Willow Springs
Becovic Management Group of Indiana recently constructed The Preserve at Willow Springs, a master-planned, 90-unit development located just north of downtown Indianapolis. Becovic owns and manages all the properties it builds, so long-term performance of building materials is a prime concern. LP SmartSide products were the company’s pick for building exteriors at The Preserve, including siding, trim and soffit.
“In the past, we’ve had trouble with fiber cement siding that required extensive maintenance about seven years after installation,” explains Randy McKnight, President of Construction for Becovic. “I don’t foresee that happening with LP SmartSide Trim & Siding.”
In choosing a siding material for its latest community build, the first requirement on Becovic’s list was a product that would offer long-term durability. Thanks to a special mixture of adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes and zinc borate, LP SmartSide engineered wood siding options resist decay, even in rainy, humid environments. They are backed by a 5/50-year limited warranty.
The next must-have was a product with aesthetic appeal suitable for an upscale, master-planned community. The different profiles of LP SmartSide gave project architects the design flexibility to mix many different textures and color schemes. In addition, Becovic wanted a trim and siding product that would be easier for contractors to install while creating less breakage and waste on the job site.
The Preserve at Willow Springs has achieved Gold certification from the National Green Building Standard™, thanks in part to using durable, sustainably-sourced products like LP SmartSide Trim & Siding.
