The ongoing labor shortage means building industry professionals must choose the materials they install wisely. High-performance materials help contractors stretch their manpower by saving time, labor and money. An excellent example of a high-performing material is LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding, an innovative siding product that’s strong and lighter weight for less breakage and frustration on the job site than fiber cement siding.
LP SmartSide siding is complemented by LP® SmartSide® Trim & Fascia products. These come in different lengths, widths, profiles, textures and substrates. In addition to providing a premium appearance that enhances the curb appeal of any home, LP SmartSide trim and fascia is available in 16-foot lengths for fewer seams than most house trim. Here’s more about how builders and siding contractors can benefit from using longer-length trim products.
