Prior to having new siding installed on your home, it’s wise to complete thorough research on the materials available within the marketplace to ensure that your final selection is one that will be enjoyed for years to come. Two products that win high marks with homeowners and contractors alike are LP® SmartSide® and Quality Edge seamless steel siding. It’s worth noting that the same brand name of siding can have different finishes with unique looks that can have varying levels of durability. Diamond Kote® is highly sought-after finish for LP® SmartSide® that is manufactured in Tomahawk, WI and Two Harbors, MN. Diamond Kote® is applied uniformly to all painted surfaces. Metal oxide pigments provide a strong base so that the color remains vibrant for years to come, despite exposure to UV rays. Installers appreciate the ease of which LP® SmartSide® prefinished in Diamond Kote® can be installed. Special tools and hazmat suits are not required for installation; the same cannot be said for James Hardie® siding.
