LP® SmartSide® Remodeler Spotlight: Dustin McLoud, Highland Builders

Show Us Your LP® SmartSide®” Runner-Up Says LP® SmartSide® Siding Products Provide “Triple Threat"


The Business

Dustin McLoud’s father started Highland Builders in the mid ‘80s in the Rochester, New York area as masonry business. Since then, it’s transformed into an all-inclusive building operation offering remodels, additions, and custom homes for primarily residential construction. Today, McLoud is now the proud owner of the family business with more than 25 years of experience. 


The Build

To accomplish the farmhouse chic look of this 3,700-square-foot custom home build, McLoud chose to work exclusively with LP® SmartSide® siding products, including LP® SmartSide® Vertical Siding, LP® SmartSide® Panel Siding, LP® SmartSide® Soffit and LP® SmartSide® Trim & Fascia. He notes that he prefers LP SmartSide siding products above competitors, as they provide a durable solution and have the versatility to achieve the shiplap aesthetic he was seeking.

“With engineered wood products like LP SmartSide siding products, we now have a solution that offers a traditional wood appearance that’s built to last.”


The LP® SmartSide® Advantage

McLoud was initially drawn to LP SmartSide siding products because of the authentic look, ease of installation, and industry-leading limited warranty—a 5-year, 100% labor and material replacement with a 50-year prorated warranty. He says, “It’s impressive to find a 50-year limited warranty in the building industry. That means LP is confident in its product, which in turn makes me confident using them in my business.” Because of the triple threat of its appearance, ease of installation and limited warranty, McLoud says he will continue to use LP SmartSide siding products exclusively on new builds.
