LP Building Solutions Introduces LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Vertical Siding

Product Complements Recently Released LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Narrow Trim to Offer Durable Board and Batten Aesthetic

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 20, 2020) LP Building Solutions is introducing the all-new LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Vertical Siding to complement the recently released LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Narrow Trim. Manufactured with engineered wood strand technology, the two new products provide an expansion of LP’s existing portfolio of smooth finish offerings, including LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Lap, LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Trim and LP® SmartSide® Smooth Finish Cut-to-Width Soffit.

“We are seeing a resurgence in the demand for board and batten style siding, particularly as homeowners are continuing to gravitate toward the modern farmhouse aesthetic,” said Cameron Bailey, LP SmartSide Senior Brand Manager. “Following the launch of LP’s smooth narrow trim late last year, we are now introducing smooth vertical siding to provide customers added design flexibility to meet an array of aesthetic preferences. Joining our cedar texture offerings, these new products provide the same Advanced Durability for Longer Lasting Beauty® that professionals have come to expect from LP SmartSide.” 

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Vertical Siding

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Vertical Siding complements the recently released LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Narrow Trim to offer a durable board and batten aesthetic. Coordinating with LP SmartSide Trim products, the smooth finish vertical siding is pre-primed for exceptional paint adhesion. LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Vertical Siding is offered in 16-foot lengths to reduce horizontal joints and allows for fewer seams, faster installation and less jobsite waste. The new product lets professionals deliver a board and batten aesthetic in a smooth finish while providing the protection of LP’s proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process. With four components of protection, the SmartGuard process adds strength and helps LP SmartSide products withstand impacts, damage of freeze/thaw cycles, high humidity, fungal decay and more.

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Narrow Trim

LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Narrow Trim, available in 440 and 540 series, provides a design accent to boost craftsmanship and overall curb appeal. Available in 2-inch and 3-inch widths, the product allows professionals to achieve unique customization through narrow design details. Backed by an industry-leading 5/50-year limited warranty, the product holds up in extreme weather conditions such as moisture, hail and freeze/thaw cycles. LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Narrow Trim is treated with LP’s SmartGuard process, offered in 16-foot lengths, and comes pre-primed.
