LP Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of LP SmartSide

This year, LP Building Solutions will celebrate the 20th anniversary of LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding. In 20 years LP has sold 10 billion square feet of LP SmartSide engineered wood siding and trim. That’s 358 square miles of siding – nearly the footprint of Dallas, or eight times the distance back and forth from the earth to the moon if laid end to end.

From LP’s accomplished mill workers to its knowledgeable sales team, which is implanted in key markets throughout North America, LP works to ensure that every innovative LP SmartSide product meets its high standards for builders, remodelers and homeowners.

"Builders and remodelers love LP SmartSide siding. Once they install it they realize how easy it is to use, how beautiful it looks and that they get fewer homeowner callbacks for damaged siding. It resists damage from impacts better than fiber cement and vinyl siding," said Amy Lindholm, brand manager, Siding Group, LP Building Products.

LP is celebrating the 20-year milestone of LP SmartSide siding with events at its Nashville, Tenn., headquarters and at its siding mills. LP will thank and honor the hard-working women and men who make and sell LP's robust, performance-driven siding.

LP's commitment to excellence starts with responsible tree harvesting and replanting. In its siding mills - five in the United States and one in Canada - virtually all log waste is used in siding production or to heat the facilities.

LP SmartSide Trim & Siding products come with a remarkable 5-/50-year transferrable limited warranty; see www.lpsmartside.com for complete warranty details. For more information about LP SmartSide Trim & Siding, call toll-free 888.820.0325 or visit www.lpsmartside.com.
