We will be utilizing LP Smartside siding products on an up-coming project and are looking forward to comparing for ourselves how this highly rated product stacks up to the Hardi fiber cement siding products that we have installed on so many projects over the years.
We will be installing a mix of clapboard siding as well as board and baton siding on this project. The clapboard siding is available in wood grain and smooth textures and can be ordered pre-finished which we will do. The board and baton will be accomplished by installing 4’x8′ LP panels and attaching batons on a 16″oc layout which will cover the panel seams.
These products are highly sustainable and have a great warranty, two things that we are always looking for when selecting building products.
I will report back as the install takes place with further thoughts as we are working with the actual products.
