Engineered wood siding is rapidly becoming the most frequently used siding material for new construction and remodelers. It’s an innovative material that offers enhanced durability compared to vinyl siding and is much easier to work with than fiber cement siding. Engineered wood siding is typically made from wood strands or fibers that are treated before being formed under intense heat and pressure. The result is a consistently manufactured, high-performance product that resists warping, cupping or splitting. Engineered wood siding like LP® SmartSide® Lap Siding features, among other finishes, a deep, cedar-grain texture for a warm, welcoming look that’s popular among homeowners.
