KWP Naturetech® Siding & First Nations Set to Shine in 2016
By Angie Nellis, Architectural Sales Rep., KWP

It all started six years ago, when we received an invitation to attend the Ontario First Nations Annual Conference & Tradeshow. Not knowing what to expect, and wanting to put our best foot forward, we made sure we had lots of sam­ples and product literature to distribute. The response to our KWP siding was overwhelming.

Our company has gone on to work successfully on dozens of projects with First Nations. From that initial show, we were asked to make presentations to First Nations communities across Canada. We are proud to have exhibited three more times at the Ontario First Nations An nuai Conference and Tradeshow, and at the First Nations National Conference and Tradeshow in Thunder Bay. After five exciting years, KWP have been specified and installed on more than 52 commercial and residential projects in First Nations communities.

KWP First Nation Projects in northern communities include:

New housing development in Cree Nation of Chisasibi

  • Les Maisons Chisasibi
  • Hotel Aupaluk
  • Residential development, Molly style homes in Mistissini

KWP is a leading manufacturer and distributor of en­gineered wood siding and trimboard for the con­struction and renovation markets. lt is part of the Kaycan Group, a privately owned, 100 percent­Canadian company, with its head office in Montreal. Kaycan offers products for both the exterior and inte­rior of homes. lt operates 18 locations that manufac­ture wood, vinyl and aluminum sidings, vinyl windows and patio doors, engineered wood panels, ther­mofused melamine, MDF, and particleboard.

As a market leader in prefinished engineered-wood products, KWP sets the standard in being sustainable and ecologically conscious. The wood used to manu­facture siding and trimboard contains 100 percent FSC-certified pre-consumer recycled content. Besides being EPP-certified, and conforming to CCMC and ANSI standards, the wood has negligible emission levels, exceeding norms in North America, Europe and Asia. These unique green features make KWP siding the only choice on the market that can easily help homeowners, architects, and builders LEED-certify their projects.

KWP’s Naturetech line offers the beauty, authentici­ty, durability, and warmth of wood si ding, engineered for exceptional strength and resistance to keep your home beautiful for years. The low-maintenance sid­ing is available in 16 standard colors, and five two­tone colors in five profiles (Double 5″, 6″ Classic, 8″ Laurentian, Vertical and 4.5″ Stratford).

Thirty percent thicker than competitive si ding, KWP resists termite damage and will not rot, crack or split. A Tru-Align interlock system ensures a precise hori­zontal alignment. KWP also has one of the best war­ranties in the industry, offering a 50-year warranty on product, and 25 years on paint.

We also offer a complete range of accessories, from colour-matched soffit and fascia profiles to a shake profile for gable application. Pre-painted trimboards (in 3/4″ and 5/4″ widths in 12′ lengths – from 3″ to 12″), and pre-painted, pre-manufactured corner posts are available in the same wood grain finish as the KWP Naturetech siding. Being part of the Kaycan Group we also offer exact colour matches in alumi­num and vinyl siding and accessories, soffits, fascia, and rain wear.

Whether your designs call for a traditional look with soft earth tones or a contemporary style with bright dramatic colors, KWP engineered wood siding and trim can meet your design requirements and satisfy a range of tastes.
