The LP SmartSide plant is in Two Harbors Minnesota and is a 100% renewable resource. For every tree they cut down, one is planted in its place and ready to harvest in 20 years. This product is made in this climate for this climate. All LP SmartSide Siding products feature their innovative, four component SmartGuard manufacturing process for strength and durability. This is a zinc borate-based process. It can withstand 200 mile per hour wind gusts and has the highest impact resistance rating. With the visual comparison to natural wood, you can rest assured that this innovative product will resist fungal decay and termites. It doesn’t retain any moisture if installed properly. LP SmartSide Siding will never fade in color, even after years of being in the sunshine because the diamond kote primed finish is baked on to the siding panel. This ensures a long lasting and durable product that is warrantied for up to 30 years. NexGen uses PSPI and Cedar Siding pre-finishers. LP is a complete line of high-performance trim and siding products that complement almost any building style. It is an easy and 100% environmentally friendly install. No masks are needed to protect from cancers.
