Excellent Options To Suit Your Needs

Our team of professionals will assist you in choosing the best siding products that perform well, match your style, and fits your budget.

How Engineered Wood Prevents Damage


While weather can be unpredictable, we believe that the warranty protecting your siding from it shouldn’t be. This is why all LP® SmartSide® products come backed by an industry-leading 5/50-year limited warranty. It’s our way of giving you extra confidence—regardless of the climate

Zinc Borate

This naturally derived additive helps engineered wood resist damage from termites and fungal decay.


Engineered wood stands up to impact and survives freeze/thaw cycles due to resins that offer incredible strength.


Designed to resist moisture, waxes coat each strand to offer enhanced durability in humid environments.


This final element of protection resists moisture intrusion, providing a durable base for a finished look.

Strong Winds Like Hurricanes

If you live in an area that experiences high wind-related events, the strength, and durability of your home’s siding matter more than ever. If you’re looking for a high wind-rated siding, we have some good news: LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding can stand up to tough storms with wind gusts up to 200 mph. Talk about peace of mind!


While humidity is not a factor you might immediately think of when choosing weather-resistant siding, it really can have an impact on your home. This is why LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding is engineered specifically to combat humidity-related side effects such as excessive moisture and freeze-thaw cycles.

Extreme Heat

Everyone craves sunshine—but not everyone thinks about the adverse effects that prolonged exposure to the sun can have on your home. Thanks to our patented SmartGuard® manufacturing process, our siding is designed to protect your home from a wide variety of heat-related problems such as warping, bending, and peeling.

Flooding & Rain

Long-term exposure to precipitation is certainly an important consideration when it comes to picking the sright weather-resistant siding for your home. If you live in a high-precipitation climate zone, you’ll be glad to know LP® Smartside® products have been engineered to withstand the long-term effects of exposure to water.


How your siding stands up to hail is one of the most important considerations when it comes to evaluating impact-resistant siding. With LP® SmartSide® products, you’ll have fewer worries—its warranty covers hail damage up to 1.75 inches in diameter.

Freeze & Thaw

While cold temperatures can be detrimental to your siding, frequent swings in temperatures could have an even bigger overall impact. LP SmartSide Trim & Siding has been engineered to battle the effects of the freeze & thaw cycle.
