LP Building Solutions Expands LP® SmartSide® Smooth Trim & Siding Portfolio with Smooth Finish Soffit

New Engineered Wood Smooth Finish Soffit Offers Clean, Sleek Look

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 28, 2020) LP Building Solutions has expanded its line of smooth finish products by introducing LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Cut-to-Width Soffit. Manufactured with engineered wood strand technology, the new portfolio addition follows 2019’s introduction of LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding to provide Advanced Durability for Longer Lasting Beauty® in a smooth finish.

“Since its introduction last year, we have seen strong customer interest in our LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding,” said Derek Blank, LP SmartSide Senior Brand Manager. “Our Smooth product provides a great look on the side of a house and is able to complement a wide variety of styles and aesthetics. To provide even greater variety, we have launched our smooth aesthetic in a new soffit. This will allow us to continue our growth and meet the needs for durable siding with a great modern aesthetic.”

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Cut-to-Width Soffit provides a clean, cohesive look to match other LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding products. For better workability, the product comes in a 16-inch width that helps to eliminate time spent ripping full sheets. Like all LP SmartSide products, LP’s smooth soffit is pre-primed for exceptional paint adhesion. Easy to work with using standard woodworking tools, the product is designed to create an easier jobsite installation. 

In addition to the new smooth soffit, LP offers a cedar texture soffit in a woodgrain aesthetic in pre-cut widths. Cedar texture vented soffits are also available with precisely cut, bug-resistant vents to provide an alternative to vinyl, MDO, plywood or hand-installed metal vents to make it easier to meet code requirements while adding architectural beauty. Treated to the core with LP’s proprietary SmartGuard® zinc borate-based process and bonded with a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay, all LP SmartSide soffit provides the same long-term durability and strength against harsh weather as its siding and trim products.

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Cut-to-Width Soffit is now available for order. To learn more, visit LPCorp.com/SmartSide.
