LP Smartside Siding - Wood Siding without the Paint
the unparalleled beauty of wood siding on your home without the headaches
What makes LP Smartside siding better?
Odyssey Siding is proud to partner with LP Smartside to provide the best engineered wood siding available on the market. LP Smartside siding is manufactured to provide remarkable durability due to their proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process. This process ensures that every strand of wood is treated with a carefully formulated mix of resins, waxes, and zinc borate, and also finished to offer complete protection against hail, moisture, termites and fungal growth. One of the most significant benefits of LP Smartside siding is its low maintenance requirements. Unlike wood siding, which needs to be painted or stained every few years, Diamond Kote siding pre-finishing gives LP Smartside a durable, fade-resistant coating that will not peel or chip. This means that you will not have to spend time and money on maintenance, and you can do what you wanted to in the first place – enjoy the beautiful, like-new appearance of your siding for many years to come.
Another benefit of LP Smartside siding is its energy efficiency – it is designed to help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can help you save money on your energy bills. The siding’s unique design creates a barrier between your home and the outside elements, which helps keep your home at a consistent temperature and reduces the energy needed to heat and cool your home.
In addition to its durability and energy efficiency, LP Smartside siding’s proprietary Diamond Kote color finishes are an excellent option for homeowners looking to improve their curb appeal – coming in various colors and styles so that you can choose the best choice for your home’s aesthetic. LP smartside siding’s clean, modern lines and smooth finish will add a touch of sophistication to any home.
How does LP Smartside Siding compare to Vinyl or wood siding?
One of the most significant advantages of our engineered wood siding is its low maintenance requirements. Wood siding, for example, needs to be painted or stained every few years to maintain its appearance and protect it from the elements. This can be time-consuming and costly, especially if you have a large home. On the other hand, vinyl siding is not as durable as LP Smartside siding and is more susceptible to damage from impact or extreme weather. Vinyl siding will also not be able to provide the aesthetic that wood siding does. Our LP Smartside siding combines the look of wood with the maintenance-free quality of vinyl siding and is available in a wide range of colors and styles – so you can choose the option that best fits your home.
Wood and vinyl siding offer different costs and benefits compared to LP Smartside siding. Wood siding can be painted or stained, but it will not hold up as well over time and will require constant maintenance. Vinyl siding is available in the largest selection of colors and profiles on the market, but in comparison it can often look plastic or fake, and it may not be as durable as engineered wood siding. LP Smartside siding, with its Diamond Kote finishing technology, is also be a better investment in the long run than traditional wood or cedar siding. Its low maintenance requirements mean you won’t have to spend time or money on upkeep. This means that, over time, you’ll save money on maintenance and repairs compared to wood siding.
Overall, LP Smartside siding is the best option for any homeowner who wants to stick with the traditional look of natural wood without the headaches that come along with it. It offers a combination of durability, low maintenance, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal that you won’t find with other siding materials. You will be pleased with your investment in our engineered wood siding.
What is the difference between LP Smartside Siding and Hardie Board?
At Odyssey Siding, we strive to provide the best options for each class of products. As far as engineered wood siding is concerned, the most popular brand has historically been Hardie Board. However, the great thing about our industry for consumers is how competitive it is – over time, new products emerge that dethrone the old. This is precisely what has been happening in the engineered wood siding market, with LP Smartside having, in our opinion, taking the top spot from Hardie Board.
LP Smartside siding is made with high-quality materials and designed to last many years. It’s also highly durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions, so you can trust that it will protect your home from the elements. On the other hand, Hardie Board siding is made from a composite material that is not as durable and may not hold up as well over time. Another critical difference between the two types of siding is their maintenance requirements. LP Smartside siding uses their Diamond Kote technology to pre-finish their panels with a durable, fade-resistant coating that won’t peel or chip – so you won’t have to spend time or money on maintenance. In contrast, Hardie Board siding requires regular painting or staining to maintain its appearance and protect it from the elements. This can be time-consuming and costly, especially if you have a large home.
In terms of energy efficiency and appearance, LP Smartside siding is also a better option than Hardie Board siding. LP Smartside has a unique design which creates a barrier between your home and the outside elements, which helps keep your home at a consistent temperature and reduces the energy needed to heat and cool your home. Hardie Board siding does not provide the same level of insulation, which means your home may be less energy efficient, and your energy bills may be higher. LP Smartside siding also comes in a wide range of colors and styles so that you can choose the best option for your home’s aesthetic. Plus, the LP siding’s smooth finish and clean lines add a touch of sophistication to any home. In contrast, Hardie Board siding does not offer the same level of customization.
Overall, the team at Odyssey Siding believes that LP Smartside Diamond Kote siding is a better option than Hardie Board siding. It’s more durable, requires less maintenance, and is more energy efficient – which is why we put our name behind it.
Some key features of odyssey's engineered wood Siding
Odyssey Siding is proud to use LP Smarteside Diamond Kote® pre-finish to provide you with the only 30-year finish warranty on engineered wood siding on the market. Diamond Kote® is an advanced paint technology that uses the purest metal oxide colorants extracted from rocks. Because these natural pigments don’t fade over time, Odyssey siding can provide a product that keeps your siding vibrant and protected from destructive UV rays that cause other paints and finishes to fade quickly.
QUALITY PAINT MATTERS
Under 40x magnification, there are significant differences between the Diamond Kote® pre-finish used by Odyssey Siding engineered wood and other finishes. Other finishes are porous, resulting in a less vibrant finish, trap dirt and moisture, and can lead to premature failure.
LP Smartside siding products are pre-finished for low maintenance, resisting the buildup of dirt and grime while locking out moisture. This durable finish makes it one of the most accessible engineered wood products to clean and reduces overall maintenance.
Durable scratch-resistant finish that withstands the test of time, surpassing all standards, including the ASTM D3359-09 test of adhesion. ASTM D3359-09, which determines the strength between the substrate and paint, states if 20% or less paint is removed, it passes the test. Odyssey engineered wood siding exceeds the industry standard.
