BlueLinx Wood SidingWrite a review of BlueLinx Siding
BlueLinx distributes and markets a line of engineered wood siding in mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States. The wood siding is manufactured by LP (Louisiana-Pacific) and is branded as SmartSide®.
LP SmartSide Lap Siding
SmartSide is designed to look like natural wood, but without knots. It can be painted any color and is pre-primed to maintain consistent application and optimal adhesion, and is termite- and decay-resistant.
Reliability and the necessary protection against damage are some of the other reasons to consider LP SmartSide. Constructed from a foundation of wood fiber or strands, each piece is designed with durability and manufactured to resist warping. Next, a zinc boride compound throughout the substrate works to protect against fungal decay and termites. Plus, LP SmartSide Lap Siding is proven to withstand climate conditions and the weather, including extreme heat, cold, rainfall, and humidity. LP SmartSide accessories are built according to the technology of the siding and contain all of the advantages as well.
Care and Maintenance of Lap Siding
In most instances, lap siding will require little maintenance by the homeowner, besides the necessary cleaning. When the siding needs to be repainted, it is recommended to learn about exactly how to apply it in order to ensure the best result. Many homeowners will simply hire an experienced contractor to paint or replace the damaged boards as needed. Either BlueLinx or LP can assist in obtaining information about the continued care and maintenance of lap siding and trim.
According to the LP website, SmartSide Lap Siding has a 5/50 Year Transferrable Limited Warranty that features
- 5 Year, 100% labor replacement
- 5/50 Year Prorated Limited Warranty
