At Folk Art Playhouses we care about our customers and we also care about our planet. We are committed to building quality crafted playhouses that your kids can enjoy for many years to come, while minimizing the impact on the environment.
So we are happy to announce that we have begun using LP SmartSide siding products as a major building component in our playhouses.
LP® SmartSide® products deliver all the warmth and beauty of traditional wood, plus the durability and workability of engineered wood. Their SmartGuard® manufacturing process actually improves upon nature, creating products that are engineered for strength, performance and protection against fungal decay and termites. LP SmartSide products are all backed by an industry-leading 5/50 Year Transferable Limited Warranty.
LP® SmartSide® products are eco-friendly because they reduce waste. The absence of knots and voids helps reduce scrap woodpiles. Longer board lengths reduce the total number of pieces needed to complete a playhouse. And superior durability means less material lost to breakage. All of which is good for us, our customers and the planet!
The entire LP SmartSide manufacturing process is earth-friendly as well. In accordance with Sustainable Forestry Initiative® standards, they use wood from small, fast-growing trees for less waste and better resource usage. Their process uses the entire log, with no urea-formaldehyde and low-emitting safe resins as a binder. Finally, the zinc-borate in their SmartGuard® manufacturing process is a naturally-occurring material.
What this means for you is that when you buy your children’s playhouse from Folk Art Playhouses, you can rest assured they will have a safe, durable play space they can enjoy for many years to come. And you will be doing your part to take care of the planet your children will live in for even more years to come.
