Homeowners today are lucky to have a wide range of siding options, which they can further customize to suit their needs. One of the best siding materials that you can find in the market is engineered wood.
Engineered wood is made from wood chips or strands that are coated with resin binder and compressed to form a board. LP SmartSide treats each piece using its SmartGuard zinc-borate treatment system, which effectively protects against rot and termites.
In this post, Allstar Construction, one of the area’s top siding replacement and roof repair companies, shares the advantages of engineered wood siding.
Rest assured that engineered wood siding can last for many years. It does not split, crack, or warp, and it is free of knots in the wood surface. It can also withstand hail and other weather elements, keeping your home safe and in pristine condition. During its production, a tight and impenetrable layer is added to the material so that it could stand up to mold, mildew and insect infestation.
Engineered wood siding comes highly recommended by siding contractors due to its versatility. It can be customized in many ways, allowing you to achieve your desired look. Choose from a wealth of colors, textures, and other design options to create an aesthetic that will boost your home’s curb appeal.
Engineered wood siding takes less to manufacture than wood siding. And since it is lighter than wood, installing it is also cheaper. So if you are considering a more affordable option, engineered wood siding would be a great choice.
Engineered wood siding has a high wood waste content, including sawdust, so it is more sustainable than wood. Also, its life span typically ranges from 20 to 30 years, requiring fewer replacements along the way. And once its serviceable life is already up, the discarded engineered wood siding will biodegrade in the landfill.
