Having the siding on your Fort Collins home replaced is a relatively simple job. However, it can be time-consuming for you an installer depending on what type of siding you choose. While the length of the install should never be the only factor you consider when deciding on a siding brand–it is something to consider. As it were, LP Smartside is not only an incredible siding for value, durability, and style–but also a fast installation siding as well.

What Makes LP Smartside So Fast to Install?

Its Weight: LP SmartSide weighs much less than other types of siding. It is engineered to be incredibly tough but light. This means it can be easily carried and usually requires less labor when transporting and installing.

 Its Length: LP comes in 16-foot lengths instead of the more standard 12-foot comes in longer lengths. This means it covers more with each plank, which lessens installation time. It also means fewer joints in the siding.

Its Consistency: With fewer knots and voids than wood siding the workers on your siding job spend less time sorting for defect-free straight pieces. It also means fewer cuts which saves time. 

It’s Easier to Cut: With LP SmartSide, your Fort Collins siding installers can use regular framing tools to cut it down to size. This makes it faster to install and cheaper because no specialized cutting techniques or expensive diamond cutting tools are needed.

Beyond being a fast installation siding product, LP SmartSide has a lot of other reasons to become your first choice for siding on your Fort Collins home. Contact Scottish Home Improvements today for more information on this incredible siding option and pricing.
