Ozark Mountain Home Builder vs. Meek’s Lumber / US LBM Holdings and LP Corporation
The house at 52 Dirleton Drive is being built for the owner of Ozark Mountain Home Builder using tested and proven alternative building techniques to reduce the impact on the environment, improved comfort, and lower-energy costs, resulting in a low-carbon footprint through the life of the home.
LP TechShield 7/16 OSB panels were installed as sheathing for the exterior walls and roof decking. The LP TechShield OSB radiant barrier panels were purchased because LP Corporation advertises the LP TechShield OSB as “Proven To Be The #1 Radiant Barrier” and “Super Moisture Resistance”. This description is false and misleading.
LP Corporation has not honored the LP TechShield 20-Year Limited Warranty for the manufacturing defects, and LP’s warranty representative, David Dellwo, was rude and his behavior unprofessional to say the least. Meek’s Lumber has not acted in good faith to remedy the problem with the LP TechShield that Meek’s delivered with pre-existing moisture damage, or the manufacturing defect, causing construction to stall for many months.
Meek’s Lumber and Building Materials in Rogers, Arkansas delivered the LP TechShield 7/16 OSB panels with pre-existing moisture damage two times in February 2022, and a third in March 2022 with a manufacturing defect where the radiant barrier foil overlay is not fully adhered to the OSB substrate. The LP TechShield panels are continuing to degrade. LP Corporation representative blamed Meek’s Lumber for improper handling and storage of all the LP TechShield before delivery to the jobsite.
Ozark Mountain Home Builder purchased framing materials through Meek’s Lumber Springdale Design Center because of the description the sales representative, Roy Garrett, stated about the quality of the lumber and Meek’s Lumber customer service. The lumber was more expensive and turned out to be of poor quality. Some of the lumber Meek’s delivered had an advanced stage of fungal decay. Meeks Midwest Lumber delivered defective LP TechShield OSB panels and their customer service was very bad.
The defective building materials and the poor customer approach by Meek’s Lumber / US LBM Holdings and LP Corporation has caused unnecessary delays with the construction progress, and a financial loss for Ozark Mountain Home Builder.
