CK BWS: I'm so glad you mentioned LP SmartSide.

We did a lot (A LOT!) of research before choosing LP SmartSide SMOOTH.

Al Otto : One of many links: https://www.3ghomeimprovements.com/2017/01/siding-replacement-wars-james-hardie-vs-lp-smartside-in-a-battle-for-contractors-builders-and-you-2/

Hardie has limited warranties of 30 years for boards and 15 years for trim. LP SmartSide has limited warranties of 50 years for boards and five years for trim.

Also, SmartSide comes in 16' lengths as opposed to Hardie's 12' lengths so fewer seams.

We had our house and detached garage re-sided a week ago. About three thousand square feet.

Found a GREAT local siding contractor who also painted the siding. In almost twenty years of siding and painting, he said this was the first time he'd ever painted a house black.

We still have some details to paint: garage door, garage man door, outside corners, and garage vent will all be painted Perfetto copper.

for now, this is a photo of the back of the garage.

What about aluminum siding? It’s paintable, light, easy to install, and rot resistant?

durable?, yes

Buyer's acceptance? so, so. Falls in the same category as sprayed popcorn ceilings.

70s fashion
