Thanks to the quality of the factory finishing process, prefinished LP® SmartSide® engineered wood siding options have a uniform finish that is long-wearing and weathers evenly, creating less maintenance for the homeowner in the long term. Although SmartSide siding is an easy-maintenance material, it still needs cleaning from time to time. Follow these simple tips to keep it looking beautiful.
Why are LP SmartSide products so durable? It’s because they are treated with LP’s exclusive SmartGuard® process. Exterior trim and siding are often subjected to extreme temperatures, moisture and insects. Only the SmartGuard process offers four components of protection against termites and fungal decay: an advanced formula of binders, waxes and zinc borate that’s bonded with a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay. The result is an advanced material that offers long-term toughness in the face of harsh weather.
The process of buying a house can seem daunting, especially for first-time homeowners. Even if you’ve been through it before, navigating the many steps and stakeholders can be challenging. But knowing what to expect during a home inspection and how to approach repairs can make a big difference.
Protecting your siding from damage is crucial no matter the season or time of year. Warm weather presents several unique issues to your home’s exterior that can have a negative impact, especially without proper siding maintenance. LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding provides the protection and peace of mind you need to keep your siding in great shape during warmer seasons with easy maintenance requirements.
