Everlast® Advanced Composite Siding Selected for Brick Lane Community Church Renovation Durable, Low-Maintenance Siding Ideal for Large Church Addition

Brick Lane Community Church in Elverson, PA recently built a large addition onto their existing facility and underwent an exterior renovation. The project called for siding on more than half of the exterior walls – but the building team at Stoltzfus Enterprises had not fully committed to one particular type yet.

Brick Lane Community Church began in the 1970s as an apartment bible study group, and has since grown into a local church family of about 400 members and attendees. The continued growth of the congregation required an expansion to the church’s sanctuary space.
