LP Building Products recently announced that prefinished LP SmartSide Lap Siding will now be stocked in the full standard 12-color palette by Cedar Siding, the first member of the LP Preferred Prefinisher Network to offer this service.
“LP SmartSide is the fastest-growing brand of exterior siding in the United States,” said Mike Maddern, segment manager for LP SmartSide Trim & Siding, “and in order to keep evolving locally, regionally and nationally, it’s important that we build strong relationships with quality distributors like Cedar Siding. That’s why we’re thrilled at their decision to fully stock our lap siding in the entire LP color palette. This service offers their customers as well as ours a convenient one-stop shop for the SmartSide lap color they’re looking for with little to no wait time ever, which saves valuable time on the job.”
The benefits of having the full color palette in stock include:
Prompt availability for both the initial order and any additional product needed to finish a job
In-stock position allows for competition with similar in-stock color programs on other composite-based materials
Cedar Siding’s standard 15/25 limited warranty on the finish covers some or all of the labor costs for the first 15 years, with an overall 25-year warranty on the coating itself
Additionally, the primed siding and trim products come with a 5-year, 100 percent labor and replacement feature as part of the 50-year prorated limited warranty (see the complete warranty on the company’s website)
The LP colors available from Cedar Siding are White, Almond, Sand, Wheat, Khaki, Mist Grey, Harbor Grey, Sage, Walnut, Cream, Blue and Country Red.
The benefits of prefinished LP SmartSide siding are:
Paint applied and cured in a controlled environment can lead to improved quality and consistency
Most prefinishers, including Cedar Siding, will offer color-matched accessories for joints and flashing as well as touch-up paint
Saves time on installation, and siding goes up with instant curb appeal
With LP SmartSide Lap products that can be blind nailed, touch-up is minimal
Can easily be repainted down the road if desired
