Quality Spotlight: LP® SmartSide® vs. Fiber Cement


When it comes to building your new home, Boone Homes chooses only the best products in order to build a home that is not only beautiful, but also high-quality enough to stand the test of time. When it comes down to deciding between fiber cement and LP® SmartSide® trim and siding, our choice is the latter.

Here are some reasons why LP® SmartSide® is our choice for building your dream home:

  • Impact Doesn’t Equal Damage – Throughout life, it is likely that your home will be hit by hail, golf balls, baseballs or rocks at some point. LP® SmartSide® is more resistant to these everyday hazards than fiber cement. Need proof? Watch the video above.
  • Realistic Wood Texture – If you like the look of wood, then LP® SmartSide® is perfect because of its more realistic wood texture.
  • Time Tested – When you purchase a new home, you expect it to last for years to come. LP® SmartSide® have been time tested and since 1997, more than 7 billion square feet of products have been manufactured and installed in more than 4 million homes.
  • Lighter Weight – With a lighter weight per foot, LP® SmartSide® is easier to carry and install. It is also stronger and doesn’t require special tools to install.
  • Color – LP® SmartSide® is less likely to lose its color than fiber cement which contains natural salts and minerals.
  • Less Seams – LP® SmartSide® is slightly longer than fiber cement leading to fewer seams or joints.
  • Warranty – LP® SmartSide® generally offers a longer limited warranty that most fiber cement warranties.

These are just a few of the many reasons that LP® SmartSide® trim and siding is the choice of Boone Homes. For more information on these quality building products, visit www.lpcorp.com.
