A home’s siding must be tough enough to withstand the harsh weather conditions to keep your home protected, but it takes something special to make sure they’re up to the task. This is why our LP® SmartSide® products are protected via SmartGuard®. What is SmartGuard and how does it protect our siding?
SmartGuard in a Nutshell
SmartGuard is neither a product, nor a feature, but a process to ensure the quality of every LP Smartside product that rolls out of the manufacturing plant. Through the Smartguard process, our siding products get improved resistance to water, wind, fire and even destructive organisms.
4-component Wood Treatment
LP SmartSide wooden products are treated with a 4-part blend of protective substances to make them suitable for homes and new decks. A water-resistant wax coat keeps the siding water-resistant down to the last fiber, while zinc borate minimizes termite and fungal damage. Last but not least, advanced binders and a resin-saturated overlay increases each product’s structural strength and resistance to impact damage.
Extreme Climate Testing
Products that undergo the SmartGuard treatment are tested in Hilo, Hawaii. In a place where you can expect heavy annual rainfall, high humidity and the presence of termite colonies, there’s no better way to prove our products’ worth than to have them survive some of the harshest conditions that siding have to put up with.
In order to make the most out of our SmartGuard-protected siding, they must be installed according to manufacturer specifications. Our certified siding and gutter repair experts not only have the gear, but also the training and experience to make sure LP SmartSide products will perform according to our high expectations.
