Your home is probably the largest investment you will make in life. Not only is your home a giant financial obligation, but it is the place where you and your family live day to day. It makes sense to protect your investment for as long as possible. Using LP Siding on your home is a great way to not only keep your home looking beautiful, but to help protect your investment long term.
LP siding has the look of traditional wooden siding, but is actually a composite engineered material. The siding even has the look of real wood with knots throughout the material. While LP siding has a stunning appearance, there are also several practical benefits to using LP siding for your home.
Due to the makeup of LP siding, the material is much more dent resistant than traditional cement board. This means that your home will be protected against debris that traditionally would cause damage. Additionally, your home will be better protected against dangerous hail that could wreak havoc on your home’s exterior.
Holds Up to Weather
LP siding is a composite siding made up of engineered hardwood. The wood look keeps looking great long after traditional siding begins to fade. This is in part due to the lack of natural efflorescence. These are salts and minerals that are found within traditional cement board and can cause your house’s exterior to fade over time. Homeowners that use LP siding do not need to repaint their homes every five years like traditional wood siding. Additionally, LP siding is mold and fungus resistant making it an excellent choice for homes in moist climates. The composite make up of the engineered wood makes mold and fungus less likely to take hold and spread.
Having one termite infestation on your home can costs thousands of dollars to eradicate. Not only is a termite infestation expensive, but it can be time consuming replacing traditional wooden siding. Because LP siding is not made of dense wood there is nothing for pests, like termites, to live in. Termites are not interested in eating through the engineered hardwood of the siding.
Whether you are building a new house or are remodeling an existing home, LP siding could be the right choice for you. Great looking and long lasting, LP siding has several benefits to help protect your investment. If you are interested in learning more, reach out to the professionals at C&T Siding.
