LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding Prefinish Solutions Available from Preferred Prefinishers

The undeniable curb appeal of LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding is just one reason why it’s one of the fastest-growing siding brands in the U.S. To get the warm appeal and customized appearance of LP SmartSide strand products, we first start with one important ingredient: real wood. Sustainably-sourced logs are harvested, cut into precisely shaped strands of wood and then treated to the core with our proprietary SmartGuard® process, which helps keep out moisture for long-term durability and strength against harsh weather.

Next, the treated wood fibers are covered with a resin-saturated, water-resistant overlay and compressed under very high heat. An authentic cedar grain texture is pressed directly onto the substrate – the look that more and more builders, siding contractors and remodelers prefer. The result is a beautiful, durable, primed-and-ready-to-paint surface that resists decay and insect damage.

Get a Beautiful Finish

While LP SmartSide Trim and Siding products are primed prior to shipment, most homeowners desire beautiful application of color that expresses their style. We recommend purchasing prefinished LP SmartSide siding and trim through our Preferred Prefinisher partners. These prefinisher professionals offer the best in high quality prefinishing services.

LP Preferred Prefinishers are screened for superior application techniques. Each produces prefinished LP SmartSide siding in on-trend, rich color palettes including unique regional custom colors. Our Preferred Prefinishers offer a minimum 15-year finish warranty with a labor component covering the first five years
