Exploring Siding Finishes

LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding finishes—cedar texture and smooth—deliver Advanced Durability for Longer Lasting Beauty® and can help complete the look you want for your home.

The Difference Between Textures

Cedar Texture

Realistic, deep cedar-grain texture and defining shadow lines create the look of traditional wood.

Why cedar texture?
  • Offers the look of traditional wood siding without common problems that come with it
  • Features deep shadow lines that looks more like traditional wood than other claddings
  • Provides a durable option for home styles that lend themselves to a cedar texture look

Brushed Smooth

Engineered wood trim in brushed smooth creates simple, clean accent looks.

Why brushed smooth?
  • Provides a modern look with durable trim
  • Works with many architectural styles including Modern Farmhouse, updated Ranch and Cape Cod
  • Can be used to create eye-catching details
