Hailstorms can cause serious damage to your home and potentially lead to expensive repair costs. That’s why, as a homeowner, you should make it a point to invest in durable and hail-resistant building products, especially for your siding and roofing, which are the most exposed to the elements.
Today’s technology enables manufacturers like LP® Building Solutions to come up with siding products that can withstand hailstorms. In fact, their LP SmartSide® siding is now warrantied for hail damage, further proving that it’s worth the investment.
Benefits of LP® SmartSide® Lap Siding
The National Wind Institute’s Debris Impact Facility at Texas Tech University conducted tests to determine if LP SmartSide siding has better hail damage resistance than fiber cement or vinyl siding. The result showed that LP SmartSide siding had no signs of impact when it was struck by 1.75-inch hail at 81 miles per hour.
Meanwhile, fiber cement siding had dents ranging from 0.082 inches to 0.201 inches deep after being struck by the same size of hail at the same speed. Vinyl siding also sustained damage from 1.25-inch hail at 57 miles per hour.
