The winter chill is upon us here in Colorado. And it seems whenever the temperature drops homeowners here in Colorado are, understandably, more concerned with installing a siding that will winterize their homes. The perfect siding for the sometimes rough winter conditions here in Colorado is LP Smartside. Beyond it being incredibly effective as a winter-resistant siding, it is affordable too. But what makes LP Smartside such a good investment for those Coloradans wanting to winterize their houses? Read below and find out:
Reason 1: LP™ SmartSide™ Trim & Siding Resists Water Infiltration
One of the biggest issues with the winter weather isn’t the cold that you feel. It is actually the penetration of sitting moisture from snow and ice beneath your siding. Engineered wood siding from LP is a powerful solution for homes in cold weather climate because it resists cracking, warping and splitting. Manufactured from an innovative blend of wood fibers, water-resistant resins, and industrial-grade binders, LP Smartside protects the sometimes extreme Colorado temperature fluctuations.
Reason 2: LP™ SmartSide™ Exceeds Wind Speed Requirements
With the rain, snow, sleet, and ice here in Colorado also, as you well know, comes the wind. It can be brutal and tears pieces of siding off all the time. Since LP SmartSide is a durable treated engineered wood product containing exterior-grade resins, it has a powerful bond that can withstand the harshest weather elements. LP SmartSide is engineered to withstand 100-150mph wind surges so the Colorado wind is no match for this product.
Reason 3: LP™ SmartSide™ Products Are Energy Efficient
While LP SmartSide siding gives your home that added layer of protection that keeps it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer–LP makes other products to amp this protection up. LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing is designed to lower a home’s attic temperature in the summer and keep in the heat trapped in the winter and combined with LP Siding makes your Colorado home incredibly energy-efficient.
