LP® SmartSide® vertical siding provides a durable, versatile option for builders interested in providing their clients with a new look for their homes. There are many vertical siding options that tap into new trends in house siding.
Additionally, LP SmartSide vertical siding has been chosen by numerous professionals as one of the most durable siding options on the market today. We caught up with Kyle Stumpenhorst, owner of RR Buildings, and Erik Perkins of Perkins Builder Brothers to discuss why they choose LP SmartSide vertical siding over its top competitors and to get some new vertical siding ideas.
“I prefer LP SmartSide vertical siding over fiber cement siding for many reasons,” Stumpenhorst says, “but first and foremost is the durability difference.” When it comes to the benefits of engineered wood siding, durability stands out and impacts many other aspects of using the product.
LP SmartSide vertical siding options include two siding textures: cedar texture and smooth finish. Each piece of vertical siding measures 16 feet by 16 inches and 0.354 inches thick. While some fiber cement manufacturers do not offer vertical options, LP SmartSide Trim & Siding is proud to manufacture exterior vertical siding options for increased versatility in what builders can offer their clients.
“A lot of homeowners want to have curb appeal, and they sometimes don’t know how to do it,” says Perkins. “Vertical siding offers a unique approach to a home’s exterior as opposed to traditional lap siding.”
Vertical Siding Ideas
Because siding is the finishing touch to a home’s exterior, it impacts the final look and the home’s overall curb appeal more than other features. Having plenty of exterior vertical siding ideas to give your clients is critical to helping them achieve the look they want. “I’ve completed whole projects of all vertical siding as well as using it as an accent,” Perkins says. Let’s take a look at a few options.
These vertical house siding ideas are far from the only ways vertical siding can be used. Partner with your clients to dream up new and exciting ways to use vertical siding for enhanced curb appeal!
