Climate Tested To The Extremes
LP SmartSide Trim and Siding have been subjected to the intense moisture and thriving termite colonies of Hilo, Hawaii, since 1996. Even after years of exposure, LP SmartSide products remain structurally sound.
Proven to Resist Impacts
Because of their unique engineering, LP SmartSide Trim and Siding products offer incredible strength to resist impact damage, as shown in the videos above.
Proven to Resist Rot and Fungal Decay
Tests show that LP SmartSide siding resists fungal decay and remains structurally sound even after years of exposure in Hilo, Hawaii — a jungle with extremely high humidity and an average of 170 inches of rainfall per year.
Proven to Resist Termites
LP SmartSide Trim and Siding are treated with SmartGuard® featuring zinc borate to resist termite damage, even in the jungle of Hilo, Hawaii, which has a high population of especially aggressive termites.
Proven to Withstand Freeze/Thaw Cycles
Many substrates can crack when water is absorbed, freezes and then expands. LP SmartSide Trim and Siding are made with special waxes to minimize water infiltration and cracking.
Proven to Resist Heat and Sun Exposure
Thanks to industrial-grade binders and resins and a durable coating, LP SmartSide has been shown to remain strong and beautiful even after prolonged exposure to intense sunlight and hot, dry weather.
SmartGuard® – The Strength Of Smart Engineering
Every LP SmartSide product is treated to the core with an advanced formula of binders, waxes and zinc borate before being bonded with a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay. This process helps keep out moisture for long-term durability and strength against harsh weather.
