LP SmartSide Installs Faster than Fiber-cement Siding

LP® SmartSide trim and siding products have been proven to install faster, cut waste, and reduce build cycles for contractors when compared to installing fiber-cement siding.

Made of superior engineered wood technology, SmartSide products have been tested by Lousiana-Pacific Corp. alongside RSMeans, a trusted third party, to gauge their productivity vs. the competition.

Here are the results:

Those results suggest a big boost in productivity for professional siding installers. But HIR wanted to know more details, so we asked the folks at LP to share what features of the siding make it easier and quicker to install than fiber-cement.

They gave us a three-fold answer:

  1. LP SmartSide Lap Siding weighs 45% less than fiber-cement lap siding. That significant reduction in weights makes the SmartSide material easier to lift, carry, and maneuver into place against the house wall.

  2. Longer lengths. Compared to fiber-cement's 12-foot lengths, SmartSide siding's 16-foot lengths may lead to fewer seams and cuts. Essentially, each piece of siding covers more house.

  3. Advanced durability. LP SmartSide siding is less prone to breakage than fiber-cement siding. This means less time spent correcting mistakes on the job site.

Not only does it install quickly, but LP SmartSide siding is built to last. The engineered wood strand technology offers protection against hail, wind, moisture, fungal decay, and termites, making SmartSide one of the most durable house siding solutions on the market, thanks in part to LP's proprietary SmartGuard process. This special process ensures that every strand of wood is treated with a carefully formulated mix of resins, waxes, and zinc borate, and finished with an overlay to offer superior protection. LP backs its SmartSide products with industry-leading warranties, and you can read the warranty details right HERE.
