Project Summary

LP® SmartSide® Smooth Trim & Siding Meets Company’s Aesthetic Demands

The Business

Pioneer Builders, Inc. is a family-owned business that has been serving the western part of Washington state since 1978. Started by father Tim Uhler, the keys to the business have largely been handed over to sons Bryan and Tim. The brothers work hand-in-hand, with Bryan operating the business while Tim spends his time largely on the jobsite bringing architectural drawings to life. More than 40 years later, Pioneer Builders has created a strong reputation with a specialty in high-performance single-family new construction. 

 

The Build

Pioneers Builders recently embarked on a 1,700 sq. ft. ranch-style home utilizing LP® SmartSide® Smooth Trim & Siding for the first time. “We’ve been using cedar grain textured LP SmartSide Trim & Siding for years, but LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding allows us to achieve a simplistic, clean aesthetic to meet that growing demand,” says Bryan. 

They used LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding to add a modern flair to the ranch’s traditional features, which includes an open, single-story design, low-pitched roof and attached front garage. Pleased with the final product, the brothers are currently using LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding on a variety of upcoming builds, including a mid-century modern and modern farmhouse, to accentuate each style’s architectural features in a fresh way.

 

“We made the switch from fiber cement to exclusively LP SmartSide Trim & Siding in 2009, and haven’t looked back since. The workability and versatility of the product matched with its impressive warranty checks all the boxes for us.” —Bryan Uhler

 

The LP® SmartSide® Advantage

Pioneer Builders relies exclusively on LP SmartSide Trim & Siding due to its competitive 5/50-year limited warranty, environmentally sustainable manufacturing process, and 16-foot lengths that can lead to faster installation and allow for fewer seams. Today, they build solely with LP SmartSide Trim & Siding to provide durable, high-performance products they can stand behind.
