5 Reasons to Chooose LP SmartSide Trim & Siding

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

The very first home I purchased was a new build. I remember having to make decision after decision from everything to the style of flooring to the colour of our siding. It was actually fun to take control and visualize what I wanted my home to be. I’ve moved several times since then and with each of my new homes, I try to make them my own in both big and small ways.

My current house is a work in progress. We are slowly working at updating the outdated decor, plumbing, heating, etc. I would love to be able to update the siding on the addition. It’s old, worn and plain ugly! A new fresh look would add some major curb appeal to my bungalow and also increase its property value.


One option I recently learned about and am currently checking out is LP SmartSide Trim & Siding. They offer a complete line of exterior trim and siding products that are engineered to give the look of traditional wood with much less maintenance. They are an excellent alternative to traditional vinyl siding. Plus, they have tons of extra benefits!
