LP® SmartSide® Siding: Celebrating 20 Years of Beauty

For 20 years now, LP® SmartSide® house siding options have been the choice of those who want uncompromising quality and beautiful curb appeal. LP SmartSide products give residential and commercial structures the bold look of cedar grain texture in profiles that are always in style.

Create a Custom Look

Thanks to LP’s broad product line, LP SmartSide products offer the versatility to achieve stunning results with ease. All LP products are manufactured with the proprietary SmartGuard® process to enhance strength and offer exceptional protection against termites and fungal decay. That’s the beauty of working with treated engineered wood trim and siding.

An impressive array of sizes and finishes satisfy a full variety of design requirements, ensuring there is an LP SmartSide product for most every project. Create your own unique exterior design using one or more of the following profiles.

  • Cedar Lap
  • Smooth Lap
  • Colonial Beaded Lap
  • Cedar Texture Shakes
  • Reverse Board & Batten
  • Cedar Panel
  • Smooth Panel
  • Stucco Panel

LP SmartSide panel, lap and shake siding are available in 16-foot lengths for the potential of fewer seams and faster installation, and come pre-primed from the factory.

Choose Your Style

Whether you’re building a traditional craftsman or a modern masterpiece, LP SmartSide siding is a smart, beautiful choice.


Lap siding is one of the oldest forms of exterior cladding used on homes. The simplicity of LP SmartSide smooth lap siding accentuates the symmetrical lines of a Colonial-style home.


Craftsman bungalows almost always feature a mix of siding materials, including lap, cedar shake and stucco. Most homes in the Craftsman style have porches with thick tapered columns that rest on stone or brick porch supports. LP SmartSide siding is a smart choice when accenting homes partially finished in stone, stucco or brick.


Board and batten and panel profiles are a great choice for contemporary homes and other buildings where a visual emphasis on the vertical is desired. Coordinating LP SmartSide trim adds another touch of craftsmanship.


While ranch homes are known for their long-and-low architecture and open layout, they can also be somewhat uninteresting on the exterior. Here, LP SmartSide panel siding is used to add visual height to the gables, while traditional lap siding accents the front elevation.
