Go the Extra Mile with Long-Length Trim
by Amy Lindholm, April 26, 2018
The ongoing labor shortage means building industry professionals must choose the materials they install wisely. High-performance materials help contractors stretch their manpower by saving time, labor and money. An excellent example of a high-performing material is LP® SmartSide® engineered wood siding, an innovative siding product that’s strong and lighter weight for less breakage and frustration on the job site than fiber cement siding.
LP SmartSide siding is complemented by LP SmartSide trim and fascia products. These come in different lengths, widths, profiles, textures and substrates. In addition to providing a premium appearance that enhances the curb appeal of any home, LP SmartSide trim and fascia is available in 16-foot lengths for fewer seams than most house trim. Here’s more about how builders and siding contractors can benefit from using longer-length trim products.
- Faster installation. Because long-length trim results in fewer seams, it requires fewer cuts and produces less waste that must be removed from the job site. In addition, the strength of engineered wood trim makes long trim pieces easier to carry and faster to install. This saves contractors time and money.
- Reduced waste. Thanks to the LP manufacturing process and its length, long-length trim results in less breakage and less wasted material. When less waste is produced and less material ends up in the dumpster due to breakage, both you and your clients save money.
- Fewer seams. Use of 16-foot trim may result in fewer seams for unmatched consistency and better curb appeal.
