LP® SmartSide® Advantages
More Impact Resistant
LP® SmartSide® Siding products are more resistant than fiber cement products to impact damage from common projectiles such as golf balls, baseballs, and rocks. In fact, independent testing by NASA confirmed it. “Under similar conditions, with all three projectiles more damage was sustained by the fiber cement siding product than the engineered wood siding product.” NASA REPORT: Evaluation of Impact Damage Resistance of Two Types of Commercial Housing Siding: December 21, 2012.
Realistic Woodgrain Texture
LP SmartSide products have a more realistic wood texture than most fiber cement products.
LP SmartSide products are proven and time tested. LP has manufactured over 8 billion square feet of SmartSide products and they have been installed on over 4 million homes since 1997.
Easier to Install
LP SmartSide is significantly lighter per linear foot and stronger than fiber cement. It’s easier to carry and install on the jobsite and no special tools are required to cut it.
Up to 33% Fewer Seams
LP SmartSide trim and lap siding comes in 16′ lengths vs. fiber cement’s shorter 12′ lengths,
often resulting in fewer seams or joints on your structure.
Possible Cost Advantages
LP SmartSide products are available nationwide through independent dealers. Due to the lighter weight and increased coverage per piece, there are often significant installed cost advantages with SmartSide lap, trim and shakes over similar fiber cement products. Contact us for details.
The LP SmartSide limited warranty is longer than most fiber cement product warranties.
LP SmartSide products do not contain the natural salts and minerals which sometimes discolor fiber cement products.
All SmartSide products are manufactured with wood (a renewable resource) procured using processes certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®).
Some LP SmartSide trim comes in reversible smooth and cedar textures, greatly adding to its flexibility on the job site.
