LP SmartSide

Consumer Siding Preferences

The number one home siding material being installed nationwide is vinyl.  When you start moving up the level of price point and square footage cost to construct, many homeowners shift away from vinyl siding and more towards the fiber cement class.  Two of the most well-known materials in this class are LP SmartSide® and James Hardie®.

LP® SmartSide® Installation

Many contractors gravitate towards installing LP® Smart Siding because it’s easier to install and does not require special equipment.  Unlike James Hardie® siding, LP® Smart Siding installers are not required to wear protective gear, such as respirators to protect them from the silica plumes that are produced when cutting the siding.  LP® Smart Siding installation projects can also be over 10% faster than James Hardie®, lowering installation costs.  There are fewer seams on LP® SmartSide® installations because lengths are 16’ vs the 12’ lengths James Hardie comes in.  Another feature that sets LP SmartSide® apart from James Hardie® is that it is not impacted by efflorescence.  The phenomenon takes place when salts and minerals are absorbed into the product during the drying phase.   Lastly, LP® SmartSide® offers a category leading 5/50 warranty that offers a 5-year 100% labor and replacement feature on the material.

"Highly recommend. Quality of work and installers was excellent. I am enjoying siding, windows, gutters and a front door. They will be my first call when I come up with another project."

"Once it was scheduled it went pretty quickly, even in extreme weather conditions. TJ did a good job of overseeing his crew and keeping me informed. During final inspection by Josh, he found some errors made years ago when our roof was last shingled ( not by Lindus). He corrected the errors. The final result- seamless steel siding, window trim, and LeafGuard® Gutters is beautiful."

"Lindus Construction was recommended to me for the replacement of siding & gutters. This company is a class act. The rep meets with you to show you samples & how your home will look completed. Crews are supervised and follow ups by reps is amazing. The home looks fabulous and we receive so many compliments."
