LP Building Solutions has introduced a new siding product, the LP SmartSide Smooth Finish Vertical Siding, both to meet the modern farmhouse design trend and to complement the manufacturer’s recently released SmartSide Smooth Finish Narrow Trim.

The board-and-batten style siding is made with engineered wood strand technology, and comes pre-primed for paint adhesion. The siding is available in 16-foot lengths in an effort to reduce horizontal joints, and is designed to withstand impacts, freeze/thaw cycle damage, fungal decay, and humidity.

“We are seeing a resurgence in the demand for board and batten style siding, particularly as homeowners are continuing to gravitate toward the modern farmhouse aesthetic,” says Cameron Bailey, LP SmartSide’s senior brand manager. “Following the launch of LP’s smooth narrow trim late last year, we are now introducing smooth vertical siding to provide customers added design flexibility to meet an array of aesthetic preferences.” lpcorp.com
