Why LP Smartside Pays For Itself
July 12, 2023
Investing in a durable and long-lasting roofing material is crucial for homeowners in Minnesota, where harsh weather conditions can take a toll on the structural integrity of houses. LP Smartside, a renowned engineered wood siding product, not only enhances the aesthetics of your home but also offers numerous benefits that make it a wise investment for Minnesota homeowners.
LP Smartside is engineered to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, high winds, heavy snow, and rain throughout the year. Its advanced manufacturing process combines wood strands, resins, waxes, and heat pressing, resulting in a durable material that resists water intrusion, mold growth, rotting, warping, cracking, and splitting. Additionally, Zinc borate is applied to protect against termites and fungal decay for decades. With LP Smartside, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home will stand strong against Minnesota's harsh climate, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.
LP SmartSide has even been tested in Hilo, Hawaii, where nearly 170 inches of rain falls annually and termite colonies thrive. This durable product remained structurally sound for more than 20 years in this brutal environment.
Minnesota winters demand efficient insulation to keep your home warm and reduce heating costs. LP Smartside excels in this aspect as well. Its engineered wood composition acts as an effective thermal barrier, reducing heat loss and keeping your home insulated. By installing LP Smartside, you can lower your energy consumption and cut down on heating expenses. Plus, it’s certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
Maintaining your siding can be a time-consuming and costly task. However, LP Smartside requires minimal maintenance, saving you both time and money in the long run. Its advanced technology and protective coatings resist fading, chipping, and peeling, ensuring that your home retains its beautiful appearance for years without the need for constant repainting or refinishing.
“Twice a year, walk around your house and carefully examine the exterior from foundation to roof,” said Karen Alves, LP’s Brand Marketing Associate.
If mildew or dirt appears, use a solution of three parts water and one part white vinegar to clean it away with a wet cloth or sponge, and rinse it off with a garden hose, but never a pressure washer. Never use harsh abrasives. If there are any chips or small inflections, they can be repaired with touch-up paint by dabbing it carefully with a cotton swab and letting it dry for 24 hours.
Versatile Design Options
LP Smartside offers various textures, finishes, and 19 colors, allowing you to choose the perfect style that complements your architectural preferences. Whether you prefer the natural look of wood or the sleek appearance of modern siding, LP Smartside can fulfill your aesthetic requirements—and because it comes in 16-foot lengths, there are fewer seams than with other options. The versatility of LP Smartside ensures that you can achieve a personalized and visually appealing roof that adds value to your property.
