Starting this fall we’ll be bringing in LP’s Engineered Wood Products to our Big Island, Oahu and Kauai yards. LP® SolidStart® I-Joists are already available in-stock in select sizes and lengths. And we’re also inventorying and using LP® SolidGuard® LSL in select HPM manufactured wall panels upon customer request.
“Overall I was very pleased with how the finished product (wall panels) came out,” said Jim Vecchio, Lowney Contracting’s Project Manager on the North Hawaii Hospice project. “The LSL made the walls very straight and consistent yet much heavier and very tough to face nail, but still worth it.”
LP SolidStart I-Joists are less likely than solid sawn lumber to split, shrink, twist, warp or bow, helping reduce floor squeaks. Manufactured with a wider flange for greater stability and a larger nailing area, LP I-Joists offer exceptional performance and dependability.
“Our I-joists offer a host of benefits for builders in Hawaii,” said Kim Rogers, LP’s product manager for Building Products. “Because of its light weight and long lengths, the product installs quickly, helping save time and money as well as allowing for more open floor plans.”
