LP Wood Siding –
Wood Siding by the name of “LP” or “Louisiana Pacific” engineered wood siding is known by the class action lawsuit that started in the 1990 – 1996. LP carried a 25 year warranty and began to rot pre maturely, discoloring, disintegrating and even growing fungi. This style of wood siding is OSB (Chunks of wood glued together) with a wood grain pattern.
Believe it or not LP SmartSide is still in business! We at Elite Home Exteriors NW re-side projects are 90% replacement of LP or wood siding.
Cons to LP Siding-
- Attracts wood boring insects
- High Maintenance
- Must paint every 4-6 years
Cost is comparable to James Hardie which can not rot!
