Did You Know? Beautiful Prefinished Siding Makes a Contractor’s Job Easier

Homeowners and business owners readily understand the benefits that prefinished LP® SmartSide® trim and siding bring to their project. Because every piece of lap, panel or cedar shake siding receives a uniform finish, it helps it retain the beautiful wood grain profile of LP SmartSide siding products.

But what are the benefits of prefinished siding products for the architect, builder or remodeler? We think you’ll be impressed.

No More Job Delays Due to Painting

The benefits of finishing LP SmartSide engineered wood siding can’t be over-emphasized. In addition to eliminating the variables that cause problems with a paint finish – such as bad weather, fluctuations in temperature and humidity, and wind-blown debris – prefinishing speeds up the job. Instead of scheduling a painter to come in after siding has been installed, you only need to get the siding installed. There’s no more waiting for inclement weather to clear and no more working around masking and scaffolding while painting is completed. In short, your job gets done faster and with less hassle.

Easy Ordering, Easy Handling

Each LP Preferred Prefinisher uses on-trend, rich color palettes – including unique regional custom colors – to prefinish LP SmartSide siding. Regional distributors stock large supplies of prefinished siding in an array of colors, making it easy to plan for shipment of materials as you need them.

LP SmartSide prefinished siding products are carefully packaged to provide protection prior to installation. Every unit is palletized to keep it off the ground and make it easier to maneuver around the job site without risk of damage. And unlike fiber cement, LP SmartSide siding is lighter weight, easier to carry and resistant to breakage.
