LP® SmartSide® Builder Spotlight: Chris Rendall, Prairie View Homes Inc.

“Show Us Your LP® SmartSide®” Winner Attributes Durability & Aesthetic Versatility to Incredible Build

The Business

With nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, Chris Rendall, president of Prairie View Homes Inc., started the company three years ago in Kansas City, Missouri. When it comes to his business, Rendall takes a hands-on approach, checking the jobsites himself to ensure the attention to finish is just right.




The Build

For the winning “Show Us Your LP® SmartSide®” submission, Rendall teamed up with designer Chris Castrop of Chris Castrop Design Group to create a modern craftsman aesthetic with advanced durability. Featuring LP® SmartSide® Lap Siding and LP® SmartSide® Trim & Fascia, Rendall’s go-to choice was LP’s engineered wood products due to their combination of advanced durability and beautiful aesthetic.


“I’m always interested in new technology and better building materials. For example, real wood is a great product, but it can be unstable. Alternative materials, like LP® SmartSide® siding products, provide a more durable solution engineered to provide weatherability for years to come.”


The LP® SmartSide® Advantage

According to Rendall, "There are many advantages to using LP SmartSide siding products over competitive products." He goes on, "It's much easier to achieve a quality installation because someone experienced with wood siding and trim already has the tools and most of the know-how required. As a first timer, I can confidently say that if you want a lap siding solution with a premier look, this is a superior product."
