With Its Outstanding Durability, This Siding Can Weather the Storm
by Amy Lindholm, July 7, 2016
LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding are treated engineered wood products that give homeowners the look of wood while offering exceptional resistance to the elements. In fact, all LP SmartSide products are treated with the SmartGuard® process to resist termites and fungal decay while enhancing durability. It’s an innovation that has helped make LP SmartSide one of the fastest-growing siding brands in the U.S.
Exceeds Wind Speed Requirements
Wind, rain, snow, sleet, ice and hot weather temperatures won’t defeat LP SmartSide Trim & Siding. These durable treated engineered wood products contain exterior-grade resins which create strong bonds that can withstand harsh weather elements and offer greater impact resistance than leading fiber cement and vinyl alternatives. Our engineered wood products are an ideal choice for homeowners who would rather spend time enjoying their home instead of repairing it.
LP SmartSide is engineered to withstand tough storms. Even 100-150mph wind surges should be no match for this product. When installed as recommended, LP SmartSide lap and panel siding meet most wind speed requirements of the International Code Council (ICC ERSR-1301), the organization that develops construction codes recognized by all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
True Beauty & Craftsmanship
Defined by classic shadow lines, warm appeal and cedar-grain texture, LP SmartSide products help architects and builders achieve the custom-built appearance that homeowners love! Another advantage is that SmartSide siding works and cuts much like natural wood. Compared to fiber cement, LP SmartSide products are lightweight, easy to carry and don’t require special cutting tools.
