Are you looking for an alternative to wood siding? While beautiful, wood siding can be difficult to maintain since it’s susceptible to damage caused by moisture, heat, and pests. That’s why many homeowners choose to install LP Siding in Denver instead.
Attractive, yet durable, LP Siding is an excellent substitute for traditional options like pine, spruce, and cedar. It looks extremely similar since it’s made with real wood. But it’s much stronger because it’s treated with a protective coating.
Below, we’ve discussed the benefits of LP Siding in detail.
How Is LP Siding Different than Wood?
Traditional wood siding is made from long planks of natural wood cut from trees. Cedar, pine, and spruce are often used to manufacture wood siding. LP Siding is also made from natural wood, but instead uses small strands which are combined together using resin and aggressive binders to make continuous planks. Then, the planks are treated with SmartGuard, which is LP’s propriety protective coating. This coating helps seal the wood, locking out moisture and making it stronger and more impact resistant.
Three Reasons to Choose LP Siding in Denver
