Weyerhaeuser Distribution’s Naperville, Ill., location is now distributing KWP’s Eco-SideTM sustainably manufactured engineered wood siding and trim. Product lines include Eco-Side Primed and Eco-Side BOLD, in a range of colors and styles to meet the diverse needs of builders and remodelers.
Eco-Side features the look of cedar siding in a format that is durable and low-maintenance, is resistant to termites, and will not rot, crack or split. The 3/8-inch-thick panels come in 6- and 8-inch widths and are lighter than fiber cement. Eco-Side’s unique design allows nails to be covered after installation, eliminating the need for painted nails and ensuring a streamlined look.
Eco-Side BOLD comes factory-finished in 10 rich earth tone colors, including cactus, country red and granite. Eco-Side Primed is pre-primed for superior paint adhesion on the jobsite. Available profiles include panels and lap siding, as well as staggered and square-edge shingle panels. The products are backed by KWP’s 50-year Substrate Limited Warranty/25-year Finish Limited Warranty.
“Eco-Side products are durable, easy to install—and extremely attractive,” says Brian Cullen, area general manager for Weyerhaeuser’s Naperville distribution center. “The Primed and BOLD lines are an ideal addition to Naperville’s siding offerings, providing Chicago-area dealers and building pros with another beautiful option for facades that stand out.”
Weyerhaeuser also will supply KWP’s engineered wood trim board in a range of widths and mitered one-piece corners; the accessories are designed to stand up to the elements with no rotting, cracking or splitting.
All of the siding and trim products are made with 100 percent pre-consumer recycled wood, are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and contribute to LEED credits.
