What Does LP Building Solutions Make?

LP Building Solutions makes a variety of high-quality building products, from sub-flooring to I-joists, but we are particularly excited about their exterior finishes with SmartSide siding and trim.

Customizable Siding Styles

SmartSide by LP Building Solutions is a siding option made of beautiful engineered wood that comes pre-primed, designed to adhere to paint for optimal and even coverage. ExpertFinish SmartSide siding is available in 16 different colors and styles if you want to skip this step. ExpertFinish uses acrylic latex paint that is guaranteed to maintain its vibrant color for years.

SmartSide comes in a variety of style options, from lap siding to panel and vertical siding. They also make trim and fascia with SmartSide technology for seamless exterior design. Your clients will appreciate the LP Building Solutions Home Visualizer tool, enabling them see which color and style would work best for their home’s exterior.

Advanced Protection Technology

SmartSide uses engineered wood technology to make siding more durable, attractive, and easier to use. The siding is manufactured using an oriented strand board (OSB), known for its strength, light weight, and green binding options. Each board can be ordered to lengths up to 16 feet and comes from the mill ready for immediate use.

SmartSide is a more durable engineered option than traditional lumber siding but is just as easy to work with and cut. It also requires much less maintenance to keep it looking great once it’s installed. LP Building Solutions has created its engineered wood product using SmartGuard technology, making it extremely resistant to moisture and pests, as well as less susceptible to breaking, cracking, or chipping.

Guaranteed Durability

SmartSide products were designed to handle tough weather. They protect your home from the elements while maintaining an attractive finish that is resistant to wear and weathering. SmartSide is made to handle temperature changes and hold strong throughout the freeze and thaw cycles of seasonal change. They are so confident in their product’s durability, they include an industry-leading 5/50 limited warranty that covers extreme damage from fungal or termite infestation, hail damage up to 1.75 inches in diameter, and structural deficiencies like cracking, peeling, or chipping.

 

What Makes LP Building Solutions Innovative?

LP Building Solutions is an industry leader in product innovation. Their engineered wood products offer better strength and durability than traditional lumber while maintaining the beauty and integrity of natural wood. They pioneered the production of oriented strand board (OSB) products in the US after its invention in the 70s, and continue to find better and more efficient ways to design, manufacture, and build. LP Building Solutions is responsible for cutting edge technology that makes wood moisture resistant, flame retardant, and more versatile than traditional lumber products.
