As a building industry professional, recent market changes have likely impacted the way your business operates. As you adjust to a new normal, seeking out building material companies with proven efficiency and reliability from third-party testing can significantly influence the success of your business.
LP Building Solutions recently conducted third-party product testing, which combined material, labor and equipment data, to deliver measurable, tangible insights. The results prove engineered wood siding’s advantages, including faster installation, long-term durability and economic value.

Not only do they install faster, LP SmartSide products install much easier than other options. Here’s how they contribute to a smooth installation process:
The jobsite brings risks to siding materials during construction, from impact and breakage to general dirt and grime. LP SmartSide products are engineered to withstand breakage when they’re handed up to a crew member, and the product is less prone to accidental damage during handling and installation. Plus, engineered wood’s durability allows it to resist impact and moisture, preserving it from damage and weather during the construction process.
Efficiency and quality have always been important. But now, as a result of our ever-changing economic landscape, they are more vital than ever. With these significant market changes, it’s especially crucial that the products you choose for your builds allow you to be efficient with your time and resources.
That’s why investing in engineered wood products from companies like LP Building Solutions that back up their claims with transparency and credibility can bring you peace of mind. You’ll also be at an advantage when it comes to getting the job done efficiently without sacrificing quality—and ultimately, your clients will be pleased with the end result.
