Are you considering switching to LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding? Many remodelers and installers are anxious about switching to a new product—even when they know, in their gut, that it’s the right move. If you’re worried about change, here are four questions to ask yourself:
We asked two remodelers why they chose LP SmartSide siding products so you can read the benefits first-hand.
Kyle Miller, sales and marketing director of All Around Home Improvement, enjoys the end-result. “LP SmartSide products are less susceptible to dents or cracks upon impact from rocks, hail or kids throwing the baseball around in the yard,” says Miller. “We’ve been in business for 12 years, and LP SmartSide Trim & Siding has been around for more than 20 years. It’s long history of durability, versatility and beauty easily makes it our siding of choice.”
Brent Taylor, owner of O.C. Taylor Smart Exterior Solutions, enjoys working with LP SmartSide products for a whole other set of reasons. “With LP SmartSide siding products, you get an industry-leading warranty, an authentic look with wood grain finishes, longer lengths that allows for fewer seams, and materials that are easy to install when application instructions are followed correctly.”
The LP® BuildSmart™ Preferred Contractor Program offers comprehensive product training, along with marketing support and lead generation—and it’s all online and available anytime.
One important benefit of working with LP SmartSide products is your crew doesn’t need specialized woodworking tools. “Another perk of working with engineered wood is that my crew no longer needs the special tools sometimes needed with installing other siding products," says Taylor.
“Our crews have not had to change our installation process much since it cuts and installs like traditional wood,” Miller echoes.
Your reputation is everything. That’s why remodelers rely on LP SmartSide products for consistent performance and a premium warranty.
“Most buyers these days are warranty-conscious, so a solid warranty is definitely a factor when trying to earn someone's business who is looking for longevity in their homes,” says Miller, who hasn’t received negative feedback on LP SmartSide products in his 12 years of installing the product.
“The LP® SmartSide® 5/50-Year Limited Warranty is a huge plus. In fact, I often relate back to stories where I saw the five-year, 100% labor and material replacement portion in action when talking to homeowners or fellow remodelers,” says Taylor. “The limited warranty also gives me and my clients peace of mind when installing products.”

Between the launch of a new portfolio, debuting several products and much more, the 2020 NAHB International Builders’ Show was one for the books for the LP Building Solutions team. But don’t just take it from us. Check out the buzz that LP caught at the show, including all the details on this year’s booth and product introductions.
Many U.S. cities are experiencing population booms, and their new residents are demanding to live closer to the city’s core. This home building trend is encouraging “tall and skinny” construction, which is helping builders maximize the constraints of building on tight urban lots.
