LP SmartSide Siding gives you the freedom to easily create exceptional results with flair. LP siding is the siding of choice for homes seeking unwavering quality and distinctive curb appeal. LP SmartSide products blend the beauty of conventional wood with the superior performance of treated engineered wood to help extend the life of your home's curb appeal. LP SmartSide siding is more durable, solid, and consistent than ordinary wood panels. It's easy to recommend for light business, shed, and residential applications that demand a quality appearance and the capacity to endure harsh weather.
Why LP SmartSide Siding?
LP SmartSide Siding presents several benefits, including:
While there are numerous factors to consider when picking siding for a home, durability should always be on top of the list. LP SmartSide Siding uses engineered wood strand technology providing superior protection against hail, moisture, wind, fungal decay, and termites. Thanks to the proprietary SmartGuard process, it's one of the most resilient siding options available.
LP SmartSide Siding presents a set of competitive advantages over other siding types:
LP SmartSide Siding (Engineered Siding) Vs. Composite Siding
Engineered wood is more flexible than the composite siding, so it's less likely to crack. Engineered wood employs treated wood strands mixed with a resin binder for strength, although some composite sidings are made of cellulose fibers bonded with additional materials. Composite siding may also require more maintenance.
LP SmartSide Siding vs. Fiber Cement
While both engineered wood and fiber cement offer excellent durability and visual appeal, LP SmartSide siding offers an industry-leading warranty and is much easier—and quicker—to install. Engineered wood also offers better impact resistance.
As it's less prone to breaking, it's much easier to move LP SmartSide Trim & Siding on a worksite. This can all be done by a single person.
Engineered LP SmartSide Siding wood cuts like real wood, accommodate nails and screws and may be installed using common woodworking tools. Fiber cement, on the other hand, may demand the use of specialized cutting equipment and is more prone to fracture or break, culminating in more material waste.
LP SmartSide Siding can be 16 feet long, whereas fiber cement lap boards are available in 12-foot lengths. Engineered wood may thus be easier to install because of the additional length and fewer seams.
LP SmartSide Siding vs. Traditional Wood
Though it's difficult to deny that traditional wood has a charming appearance, it also comes with all of Mother Nature's imperfections. On the other hand, LP SmartSide Trim & Siding has a strong resemblance but is significantly more durable and resistant to impact and moisture.
Whereas conventional wood is derived from trees like cedar and redwood, engineered wood employs treated wood strands coupled with wax and resin binders for strength.
Unlike traditional wood, LP SmartSide engineered wood siding installs quickly and effortlessly due to its high flexibility. Natural wood is highly biodegradable and untreated. However, treated LP SmartSide siding can resist wind gusts of up to 200 mph and is backed by a 50-year limited warranty. Also, LP SmartSide Siding requires far less maintenance than regular wood.
LP SmartSide Siding vs Vinyl Siding
While vinyl has earned its place as the most popular siding material on the market due to its cost and ease of maintenance, it cannot compare to the durability, impact resistance, and appealing appearance of LP SmartSide Siding.
LP SmartSide engineered wood siding is much more energy-efficient than vinyl siding, making homes more energy-efficient. LP SmartSide siding can endure wind gusts of up to 200 mph and has a 50-year warranty, whereas vinyl siding is unlikely to withstand the elements. Vinyl siding is also more prone to scrape, break, or warp.
LP SmartSide Siding Options
There are several LP SmartSide Siding options to choose from, including:

Some disadvantages of LP SmartSide siding include the fact that it is a bit more expensive than other types of siding, and it can be susceptible to flaking if not installed properly. As well, it has a warranty of 50 years, which, while generous, is prorated, meaning that coverage drops by 2.2% each year after the sixth year.
Your siding should last as long as your home does with little to no maintenance needed on your part. That said, we generally recommend revamping your siding every 20-30 years.
Yes, it's important that you install a non-compressible drainable house wrap (NCDH) behind your LP SmartSide siding to protect your home from water damage. Do not attach LP Smartside vertical siding directly to studs, as this can lead to moisture damage.
Vinyl siding is typically more affordable than LP SmartSide siding. Vinyl is generally around $2 per square foot, whereas LP SmartSide siding can cost up to $10 per square foot. The benefit is that smartboard siding is more efficient and will last much longer than vinyl siding.
LP Siding is made of wood strands and fibers that are treated with zinc borate to resist damage from termites and fungal decay. This is generally referred to as engineered wood siding.
Most siding is made from either wood or vinyl. Wood siding can be painted or stained, but it requires more maintenance than LP SmartSide siding. Vinyl siding is less expensive but it doesn't offer the same level of protection against water damage, wind damage, and pests.
When installing LP SmartSide siding, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions. All exposed edges of LP SmartSide siding and trim must be primed and painted with approved paint to protect the siding substrate.
The back side is better left unpainted. Therefore, do not prime the back side of the siding or trim. It's also important to use the proper tools and techniques when installing LP SmartSide siding. Improper installation can void the manufacturer's warranty.
