There are a lot of traditional options when it comes to deciding on the siding for your home, including traditional wood and fiber cement. However, one option that will provide you with all the benefits of wood and fiber cement siding while providing numerous other advantages are the many siding options of LP SmartSide.

What are LP SmartSide products?

LP SmartSide products are siding options that are engineered using a state of the art SmartGuard manufacturing process. The process begins with the use of wood strands or wood fiber as a base. A compound consisting of zinc borate is then applied throughout the substrate in order to protect against termites and fungal decay. The bonds of the siding are then strengthened with the use of a superior exterior-grade resin.

What are some of the benefits of using LP SmartSide?

There are a number of benefits for choosing LP SmartSide siding over more traditional siding options. The following are just a few of the more impressive benefits that you can take advantage of:

Durability

All LP SmartSide products have been tested both in real-world conditions as well as laboratories in order to prove their strength and durability. Not only will they withstand harsh weather conditions such as humidity, cold, heat and rainfall, they will last at least a decade.

Ease of Use

LP SmartSide products are easier to install than other siding options, such as fiber cement. This is because LP Smartside products are lighter and less likely to crack or break. Just like wood, LP SmartSide products will easily take screws and nails.

Style

There are a number of different LP SmartSide options to choose from. In fact, there are four distinct collections that will provide your home with the style you are looking for. Additionally, all products are pre-primed at the factory making it much easier for you to apply the paint color of your choice.

Environmental friendliness

LP SmartSide uses renewable and natural resources for their siding products. All wood comes from trees that are small and fast growing so that they can be easily replenished. The entire log is used, and only wood that comes from sources that have SFI certified forest management is used. Additionally, no urea formaldehyde is used.

These are just a few of the reasons why you should strongly consider LP SmartSide siding when it’s time to update your home’s exterior look. Contact the professionals at Midwest Exteriors Plus to discuss your options when updating your home.
