Is LP smart side better then hardie plank

Asked by Sideman January 10, 2018
10
Answers

The answer depends on your usage scenario. This product is a 4' x 8' chemically-treated wooden OSB-style board with a grooved, wood-look texture applied to the facing side. This product is installed with the grooves oriented in a vertical direction. Panel comes full primed. Hardie Plank is a fiber cement panel, long and narrow, and is designed to be installed in a horizontal orientation. You would need to decide which is better in your case.

can this siding be installed horizontally?

How good is this product for a west coast beach house.

We've wrapped 2 sheds in 3 yrs with this product! It's strong durable & we like how it's handling the elements in the mountains over these last 3 years. No chipping no flaking no delaminating & it anchors well to studs. The color also looks as good as the day it went up! It was a good investment. I've also noticed on my 60 yr old house there's a small gable section of it as well painted many times but still solid!!

Smart panel is great!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
It may not be the strongest ply out there but it's good enough for most projects. It comes primed which is amazing and saves hours. It's tongue and groove which is another plus. I can't really think of any downsides to this thing it's awesome!
