If you are considering siding materials and you love the authentic look of wood, your next step is to decide between traditional wood siding and engineered wood siding. Both can give you a traditional clapboard or shingle-style exterior, but beyond this similarity, wood and engineered wood are surprisingly different from each other.
Traditional wood siding is typically made from cedar or redwood because these species have better resistance to decay. Wood siding is available in both horizontal and vertical profiles, as well as traditional shakes and shingles. It can be painted, or treated with stain or oil. However, wood has slowly declined in popularity among homeowners due to its increased cost and high maintenance demands, and the rise of better house siding options.
LP® SmartSide® engineered wood trim and siding improves on all the characteristics of natural wood, which has allowed this brand to become a top choice among remodelers and homeowners alike.
