More Durable Shed Walls

LP® SmartSide® wall panels are treated with our exclusive SmartGuard® process that helps protect against damage from fungal decay and termites. Every LP SmartSide product is treated to the core with an advanced formula of binders, waxes and zinc borate before a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay is applied. This process helps to keep out moisture for long-term durability and strength.

A Brighter, Cooler Interior

Innovative LP SmartSide® Panels with SilverTech® feature a highly reflective foil that helps to brighten the shed interior while resisting flaking and peeling. The SilverTech radiant barrier also helps reduce solar heat gain to help lower inside temperatures. SilverTech finish is available on both LP wall panels and shed roof sheathing.
