When you’re weighing house siding options and cost, examining the warranty for each product you’re considering is important. Often, when comparing warranties the first feature you’ll notice is the number of years a warranty covers. But beyond that, the complicated language on an official warranty document can make it hard to figure out its exact details and benefits.
“Problems may arise when customers do not fully read the warranty document,” says Isaac Ojeda, Construction Service Associate, LP Building Solutions. “For example, LP’s warranty is a piece-by-piece warranty, not an all-encompassing coverage warranty. Customers may think if a few boards are not installed correctly, the entire job is affected.”
Part of what makes your siding choice a good investment is the quality of the warranty your siding manufacturer offers. Warranties vary among types of siding, and cost of the siding you choose will vary as well. However, even if the cost of the siding seems higher than your ideal budget, a robust warranty helps make the investment worth it.
When choosing siding take another step to make sure it’s a good investment by looking for an ideal match for your geographical region, such as the best siding for cold climates or the best siding for hail-prone areas. LP SmartSide Trim & Siding boasts advanced durability that makes it one of the most durable siding solutions you can buy—and it comes with an industry-leading limited warranty.
