Let’s see how vinyl siding and LP SmartSide siding compare in some key areas:
Third-party test results demonstrate that LP SmartSide lap siding resisted hail damage better than vinyl siding. LP SmartSide products also resist heat better than vinyl.
Vinyl typically costs less than LP SmartSide siding but offers significantly lower aesthetic value for a home.
Both LP SmartSide siding and vinyl siding require little maintenance, but vinyl is more likely to dent or warp.
LP SmartSide siding is a more durable material than vinyl because of its proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process. This process ensures that every strand of wood is treated with a carefully formulated mix of resins, waxes, and zinc borate and finished with an overlay to offer superior protection against extreme heat, moisture, termites, and fungal decay.
