Whether your exterior is showing signs of wear like cracks or holes, or you’re simply ready for a change, replacing your siding is a good place to start. While there are many great siding brands out there, one option you should definitely consider is LP SmartSide.

LP Siding offers Fort Collins homeowners an array of benefits from low maintenance to hail and impact resistance. Below, we’ve shared some of the reasons you should consider this fantastic engineered wood siding brand for your home.


What Makes LP Siding Different from Traditional Cedar?

LP Siding is different from traditional wood because it’s stronger and more advanced.

Wood options like cedar have been used for home exteriors for centuries. However, as technology has become more advanced, we’ve discovered ways of making natural wood stronger and better suited for enduring years of exposure to the elements. One such example is LP engineered wood siding.

LP Siding is different than traditional cedar because it’s treated with a protective coating. Made from high grade waxes and resins, this coating helps strengthen the strands of wood while also sealing it and protecting it from moisture.


Three Reasons to Consider LP Siding in Fort Collins

If you’re thinking about switching the siding of your home or are currently building a new construction home and looking into different choices, LP Siding is definitely an option you should consider. Here’s three reasons why:


1. It’s hail resistant.

This is a big deal for Coloradoans. At least once a year, a terrible hail storm makes its way into Fort Collins, destroying everything in its wake – windows, cars, and home exteriors. LP Siding is resistant to hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter, providing you with peace of mind and protection from Mother Nature’s worst.


2. It looks just as beautiful as cedar.

Cedar siding is stunning… at least, when it’s brand new. But if you don’t maintain it, it will lose its beauty rapidly. You can achieve the same aesthetic with engineered wood and it will last much longer.


3. It’s low maintenance.

Forget having to refinish and re-stain your siding. Who has time for that?! LP Siding is low maintenance, so you don’t have to spend your precious free-time working on your home.
