LP SmartSide

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®.  Many contractors gravitate towards LP® SmartSide® because it’s easier to install and does not require special equipment.  Unlike James Hardie® siding, the technicians installing LP® SmartSide® 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® SmartSide® can also be installed 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.

"Lindus Construction replaced our windows, doors, siding, and installed our gutters. Every worker from the first inquiry, to installation, to any follow up concerns throughout the years has been prompt, efficient, and professional. Our installers were always courteous to work with and every day at our property picked up and cleaned all work areas. Thank you Lindus Construction for always providing the best service!"

"The crews were great to work with. When they had questions about things they never assumed, they asked. Also, they were very open to some small things I wanted them to do. Their craftsmanship is great, and they have very high standards. I would recommend them to anyone."

We've used Lindus on 4 construction projects over the years, starting with residing our 100-year-old home along with an extensive addition about 30 years ago. It still looks great. A few years later we had them build a 26' X 40' foot unattached garage to store our stuff.  Had them put LeafGuard® on the 2nd story so didn't have to clean the gutters due to all the trees around the house. Got tired of cleaning out the 1st floor gutters so had LeafGuard® put on them as well. No more ladders - Yes! Lastly, we had them put a new basement under the old part of the house to solve the damp basement. They did excellent job on a very difficult project. Very happy with the end result. Only had to spend 1 night away from home during that construction project."

"I’m so super happy with all the work Lindus has done for me: new roof, windows, siding, and gutters!  I have a whole new feel to my house and I love how it turned out! The whole experience was positive from day one where the awesome Dave patiently helped me pick out the best solutions for my budget, to the great guys who did all the work, to the supervisors and inspector who answered all my questions so promptly! And they did a great job cleaning up after each job. I really couldn’t be happier. The whole experience was so much better than I thought it would be. I’m so glad I picked Lindus. They really are a quality company that cares about doing good work!"
