Jefferson City-based Distributor Expands Reach of Composite Siding in Midwest
OAKMONT, PA (May 28, 2019) – Chelsea Building Products is pleased to announce its partnership with K + R Building Materials based in Jefferson City, MO. K + R operates from five branches throughout the Midwest, including Jefferson City, Camdenton, St. Louis, Kansas City, MO, and Des Moines, IA.
K + R Manufacturing is a family owned and operated business that began in the early 1980s. In 2005, K + R saw an opportunity to expand into the professional lumber dealer arena with new product offerings and partnerships. This new business became K + R Building Materials, which has remained committed to providing the highest quality building materials to dealers throughout the Midwest with shipping capabilities to the entire United States.
“Everlast® is the next generation of siding,” says Jeff Johnson, President of K + R. “It addresses many of the shortcomings we see with alternative siding products such as rotting and fading, and it eliminates the need to caulk or paint.”
K + R will initially inventory 8 colors of Everlast® in the 6-7/8" plank size.
“Everlast® installs much more quickly and easily, plus it requires minimal maintenance and has a lifetime warranty,” adds Johnson. “We are thrilled to help bring Everlast® to the Midwest.”
Everlast® gives homes and buildings the authentic look and feel of real cedar siding, for life. Engineered for any climate, Everlast® offers superior fade resistance and does not absorb moisture, so there is no cracking or splitting through yearly freeze-thaw cycles. It features a UV-stable acrylic cap stock that is molecularly-fused to the substrate, offering a significant advantage over products that require painting, continual repainting, and seasonal upkeep.
