Residential Homebuilder Uses LP® SmartSide® Vertical Siding to Create Seamless Look & Reduce Labor Costs


LP Building Products, the proven leader in high-performance building solutions, recently added a new case study to its online product literature portfolio. The case study spotlights Dennis Shriver, owner of Hearthside Homes in Kansas City, Missouri, who recently used LP® SmartSide® Vertical Siding for the exterior cladding of Riverwood, a 22-home residential complex built with a craftsman-style aesthetic.

Prior to this job, Hearthside Homes owner Dennis Shriver was using a combination of LP SmartSide panels to achieve his 12’ elevation requirements on residential homes similar to those in the Riverwood community. For this project, however, Shriver decided to use the 16´ LP SmartSide Vertical Siding to create a more seamless aesthetic, as the longer lengths limit horizontal seams.

Because the longer lengths of the LP SmartSide Vertical Siding eliminated the seams, Shriver reduced the additional labor that would have otherwise been required to adjust the design or to disguise the seams. Labor reduction then saved him both time and money.

By using the LP SmartSide Vertical Siding, Shriver says, “Instead of building something down in the peak or finding ways to disguise the seam, my crew was able to simply apply one panel, cut to length and go!”

Shriver also prefers the LP SmartSide warranty, noting several things he was glad to find that it encompassed compared to competitors, including broader, longer coverage and the full cost of repairs or replacements for five years. Ultimately, he says he appreciates the fact that the LP SmartSide warranty is crafted to be beneficial to the builder.

Riverwood is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 and will have 22 single-story homes, all built to eliminate the siding seams. Shriver plans to use LP SmartSide Vertical Siding in future jobs with similar architecture, as the benefits have proven that LP SmartSide siding is a “superior way to build.”
