Even here in relatively low humidity Colorado, homes fall prey to fungal decay–especially when the winter snow and spring melt are heavy. This is why LP Smartside, which is treated with an exclusive SmartGuard process, is a great choice for Denver homes. The treatments on LP SmartSide siding products go all the way to the core–not just on top. It is this proprietary blend of treatments that gives powerful fungal protection to LP siding. Find out just what goes into making LP SmartSide such a fungal resistant brand below.
LP SmartSide Protective Treatments
To make their siding tough and nearly impenetrable to scourges like fungus, rot, termites, pests LP SmartSide uses four separate treatments. Each of these has an individual purpose but they all work together to keep your Denver home watertight and fungus-free.
- WAXES: This specially blended water-resistant layer coats each strand of fiber on LP siding for added durability in rainy, humid environments.
- RESIN-SATURATED OVERLAY: This coat is the last layer of protection and sits on top of the others. It gives incredible protection against the elements. It also makes for a durable base layer for the best paint adhesion and beauty.
- ZINC BORATE: This modern additive is used in engineered wood products to help them effectively resist termites and fungal decay for decades. It is non-toxic and safe for children and pets as it is a naturally occurring substance. This could be the most important ingredient for long-lasting LP SmartSide Trim and Siding.
- ADVANCED BINDERS LP SmartSide Trim and Siding products are very strong and resist pest, fungal decay, and impact damage because of the LP’s use of industrial-grade binders and resins. These agents are put into them to make them more resistant to impact. Rain, wind, hail and even flying debris are no match for LP Smartside treated with these advanced binders.
These are the high-performance ingredients that make LP SmartSide a great choice for homes here in Denver and anywhere along the Front Range. For more info or to schedule a free, onsite estimate for your Colorado home, contact Scottish Home Improvements today!
