More and more, homeowners and contractors are becoming aware of the outstanding benefits of installing LP® SmartSide® engineered wood siding on homes and commercial structures. Thanks to the proprietary SmartGuard® process, all LP SmartSide products resist damage from extreme temperatures, moisture and termites. It’s a level of performance that few other siding products can match.
The SmartGuard process offers four components of protection against fungal decay and termites. Wood strands and fibers used in LP SmartSide trim and siding are treated with zinc borate to help protect against fungal decay and termites. The strands or fibers are then combined with special water-resistant waxes and industrial-grade binders and resins. The waxes enhance durability in rainy and humid environments, while the binders provide added strength and durability to the finished product.
But LP SmartSide products aren’t just incredibly durable and tough. They’re also beautiful! With LP SmartSide trim and siding, you get the versatility to create a truly custom look for an exterior with multiple profiles and finishes. Lap, panel, soffit and trim are all available in both cedar texture and smooth finishes.
Regardless of the finish you choose, all LP SmartSide products are pre-primed for excellent paint adhesion. Plus, their 16-foot lengths can result in faster installation and fewer seams for maximum curb appeal.
Get versatile design options, beautiful curb appeal and easy maintenance when you choose LP SmartSide products for your next project. Find a dealer near you that sells LP SmartSide engineered wood lap siding types, engineered wood panel products, engineered wood siding corner trim and more!
