Choose Durable Residential Siding

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring is a great time to reside your house, whether to increase your home's value or to replace damaged siding, but be sure to evaluate all your siding options. Residential siding exteriors do not all perform the same.

Weather attacks a home's siding year-round with freeze-thaw cycles, sun, severe storms, wind and water. These elements, when combined with other threats from termites and household wear and tear, can leave any siding materials damaged.

During the past 15 years though, builders have used more than six billion square feet of LP ® SmartSide ® Trim and Siding, making it one of the most trusted names in treated engineered wood siding and one of the fastest-growing brands of siding materials in America. LP SmartSide products are backed by LP Building Products'   industry-leading 5-year 100 percent labor and replacement feature and a 50-year prorated, limited warranty on the siding substrate.

LP SmartSide products offer the beauty of natural wood, with deep shadow lines for a premium cedar appearance. They are tested for toughness and water and impact resistance and have the durability of a treated engineered wood product to withstand harsh weather elements. LP SmartSide products are manufactured with LP's proprietary SmartGuard® process, a proven advanced technology that helps siding resist fungal decay and termites.

"LP has led the industry in developing a full portfolio of treated engineered wood siding products with the beautiful, authentic look of real wood and high resistance to damage from water and impact," said Jennifer Jenkins, LP SmartSide segment marketing manager. "The product is designed to perform for decades, providing long-lasting curb appeal. When compared against vinyl or fiber cement solutions, more and more contractors and consumers are choosing LP SmartSide for its exceptional durability and industry-leading warranty."

How do other popular siding products compare to LP SmartSide siding and trim? You'll need to do your own research to decide, but here is additional information to consider.
