Did You Know? The LP® SmartSide® Limited Warranty Beats Hardie’s by 20 Years
by Amy Lindholm, April 3, 2017
As a builder, you have many options when it comes to which siding material to install on new construction projects. It’s a crucial decision for your business. After all, your success depends on your reputation, and your reputation hinges on the homes you build and the quality of the materials you choose for those homes.
Since your choice of siding material matters so much, its warranty coverage matters too. When you build with LP® SmartSide® trim and siding, your customers will enjoy products with exceptional durability that look beautiful when installed on a home. You’ll enjoy a better alternative to fiber cement siding, and peace of mind knowing that the siding is covered by an industry-leading, 50-year limited warranty.
Industry-Leading Warranty Coverage Now Includes Hail Damage
At LP, our products and processes are designed to maximize your success. Each strand or fiber of our innovative engineered wood siding products are treated with the SmartGuard® process to resist termites and fungal decay. Advanced binders and special water-resistant waxes coat every strand for enhanced durability. A resin-saturated overly creates the final layer of protection against the elements, finishing off a material with long-term durability and strength. Available in different sizes in smooth and textured finishes, LP SmartSide lap siding and trim greatly enhance the curb appeal of new homes.
LP backs all siding and trim products with the LP® SmartSide® 5/50 Limited Warranty, one of the most competitive warranties on the market. The five-year, 100% labor and material replacement feature with a 50-year prorated warranty provides protection with confidence. New in 2017, the limited warranty also covers damage from hail, up to 1.75 inches in diameter, when the siding is properly installed and maintained according to the LP application instructions. A copy of the updated warranty is available at www.LPCorp.com.
When you choose LP SmartSide products, you’ll have 20 extra years of coverage beyond the James Hardie® 30-Year Limited Warranty included with Hardie fiber cement products.
