LP® SmartSide® Engineered Wood Siding Now Warranted Against Hail Damage

Most areas of the United States and Canada are susceptible to severe hailstorms and accompanying hail damage. When hailstones fall from the sky, their speed at impact can exceed 100 miles per hour – resulting in damage to property. However, there is a silver lining to that storm cloud: LP now offers a limited warranty that includes hail damage for residential and commercial structures with LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding.
