Siding doesn’t last forever, but some products last longer and wear better than others. If your home’s siding is becoming worn and starting to look shabby, you have an important decision to make: pick an inexpensive siding product that might not endure well, or invest a bit more in one that offers better longevity. Here’s why LP® SmartSide® products have the potential to save homeowners in the long run by lasting longer and standing up to the elements better than competitive products.
Durable Siding Backed by a Comprehensive Warranty
LP’s engineered siding is one of the most durable siding solutions available, thanks to the SmartGuard® manufacturing process. The process begins by thoroughly treating wood strands and fibers with zinc borate to protect against termites and fungal decay. This treated wood is combined with industrial-grade resins and water-resistant waxes, after which a resin-saturated overlay is bonded to the panel. The resulting material can withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, freeze/thaw cycles and almost everything in between.
“The durability of SmartSide siding products means you won’t be repairing cracks in the siding due to shrinkage, pocket cuts getting brittle and cracking, hail damage, kids’ toys hitting the house, or rocks that get kicked up by a lawn mower,” explains Clint Hulsing, Market Development Manager for LP Building Products.
In addition, this durability is solidly backed by the industry-leading LP® SmartSide® 5/50 Year Limited Warranty, one of the most competitive warranties on the market. “The warranty speaks for the product,” says Hulsing. “The SmartSide 5/50 Warranty is the best on the market because SmartSide siding products are the best siding on the market. It doesn’t get brittle over time. A golf ball or rock can hit it, and it won’t get damaged.”
“The hail warranty is a must if you live in an area with hailstorms. With SmartSide siding products, you can rest assured knowing your siding is going to hold up in the storm. And if you live in an area that doesn’t have hail, you can be confident your kids aren’t going to crack it if a baseball hits the siding,” Hulsing continues.
