LP® SmartSide® Panel Siding offers the warmth of traditional timber with the unique advantages of treated wood technology. On the outside, its physical characteristics match other alternatives to wood siding, especially when it comes to the textural design, but the LP panel siding system outperforms its counterparts in many departments.
As a siding company with the prestigious Master BuildSmart Preferred Contractor designation, Krech Exteriors sheds light on LP panel siding’s winning features:
Advanced Bead System With Shiplap Edges
LP panel siding is synonymous with quick installation. It has shiplap edges with advanced bead system that simplifies alignment. While it makes the lives of installers easier, it benefits you in a sense that it reduces the disruption associated with siding replacement. Plus, it’s significantly lighter than fiber cement siding products, helping installers accomplish more with less time. Combine these intangibles together, you can ultimately save money on labor.
Like other LP products, LP panel siding can be pre-primed for field painting. The secret to its ageless charm is its SmartGuard® finish. A mixture of water-resistant wax, all-natural zinc borate and advanced binders, the SmartGuard has been proven to render engineered wood siding impervious to fungal decay and termite damage. With its resin-impregnated surface overlay, it provides a protective skin of protection to preserve the siding’s desired color.
50-Year Limited Warranty
LP SmartSide has an extensive warranty coverage period. It guarantees that LP panel siding will stay free from fungal degradation and buckling within the first 50 years of the product. With proper maintenance, its resin-saturated overlay is also guaranteed not to crack, peel, rupture, chip, flake and separate for the same period.
Plus, LP panel siding is guaranteed to resist hail damage. It’s comforting to know that your siding is protected against the effects of average-sized hailstones for decades.
Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) Certification
LP is a certified user of the SFI®-certified forest management and fiber source system, ensuring its products are manufactured the environmentally responsible way. In other words, the wood fiber used in making LP panel siding comes from recycled content or a well-managed forest, which promotes sustainability.
