Advanced Durability for Longer Lasting Beauty
A PIONEER OF CHANGE
LP has redefined traditional building materials with treated engineered wood products that are designed to offer game-changing durability, beauty, and workability. LP is a building industry leader in a category that is shaping the way homes, outdoor building structures, and light commercial properties are being built.
With over 20 years of successful performance, it’s easy to see why the LP ® SmartSide ® brand is one of the fastest-growing brands of siding materials in the United States.
BECAUSE STRENGTH IS MAKE OR BREAK
A NATURAL DEFENSE AGAINST NATURE
All LP® SmartSide® products are treated to the core through our proprietary SmartGuard® process. With four components of protection, the SmartGuard process adds strength and helps LP SmartSide products withstand impacts, freeze/thaw cycles, high humidity, fungal decay and more.
FOUR COMPONENTS OF PROTECTION
LP’s proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process ensures that every LP SmartSide Trim & Siding product is treated with an advanced formula of adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes and zinc borate, after which a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay is bonded to the product. The result: four components of protection against water damage, termites and fungal decay.
BACKED BY STRONG WARRANTIES
LP has your back with an industry-leading, transferable limited warranty for LP® SmartSide® products: a 5-year 100% labor and material replacement warranty with a 50-year prorated limited warranty. LP® SmartSide® ExpertFinish® Trim & Siding products include an additional 15-year finish warranty.
OUTSTANDING IMPACT RESISTANCE
Testing shows that LP SmartSide strand products resist impact better than vinyl and fiber cement siding, which means they can stand up better against everything from everyday bumps to airborne storm debris. And because it doesn’t break as easily as fiber cement siding, LP SmartSide strand siding is also easier to handle and install, and results in less waste.
HAIL AND WIND RESISTANCE
Third-party test results demonstrate that LP SmartSide lap siding resisted hail damage better than fiber cement and vinyl. In fact, the LP SmartSide warranty covers impacts from hail up to 1.75˝ in diameter. LP SmartSide lap siding is also designed to withstand tough storms with wind gusts of up to 200 miles per hour. Refer to ESR-1301, Table 2B, Lap Siding.
RESISTANCE TO FUNGAL DECAY AND TERMITES
Since 1996, LP SmartSide strand substrate siding has undergone brutal testing in Hilo, Hawaii. An average temperature of more than 70 degrees, high levels of humidity, and almost 170 inches of annual rainfall make Hilo’s climate the perfect breeding ground for termites, moisture and fungal decay. Yet our Exterior Exposure Program continues to validate that LP SmartSide siding performs over time.

Choosing to re-side your home is a big decision and ultimately a very rewarding one. Whether you re-side to increase the value of your home or simply to reduce exterior maintenance, Diamond Kote® siding, built on LP® SmartSide®, will completely transform your home.
Our products are built on LP® SmartSide®, an engineered wood product treated with a SmartGuard® process to withstand extreme temperatures, heavy humidity, freeze/thaws, and everything in between.
Diamond Kote® pre-finish is an advanced paint technology, which uses the purest metal oxide colorants extracted from rocks. These natural pigments don’t fade over time, keep your siding vibrant and protected from destructive UV rays, which causes other paints to fade quickly.
QUALITY PAINT MATTERS
Under 40x magnification, there are significant differences between the Diamond Kote® pre-finish and other finishes. Other finishes are porous, resulting in a dull finish that traps dirt and moisture and can lead to premature failure.
Enjoy a durable scratch-resistant finish that withstands the test of time. Our formulated finish has been proven to surpass all standards including the 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. Diamond Kote® exceeds the industry standard.
