Stucco and vinyl may still be the kings of exterior cladding, but lately there has been a steady flow of options offering a combination of low maintenance, durability, and good looks.

As more modern looks trend upward, more brands are promoting panelized systems that bring a commercial look to the residential marketplace and smooth lap siding to suit the popular modern farmhouse aesthetic. At the 2019 International Builders’ Show, LP Building Solutions expanded its portfolio of engineered wood siding products to include SmartSide Smooth.

“For the past several years, our customers have been asking for a solution that provides the durability of LP SmartSide with a smooth aesthetic,” said Derek Blank, LP’s senior brand manager for LP SmartSide, at the time of the product’s release. “We are thrilled to be launching just that. Our new LP SmartSide Smooth Trim & Siding leverages our durable strand technology, now in a smooth finish.”

Smooth siding products also are trending with fiber-cement manufacturers, such as Allura and James Hardie Building Products. Some brands offer builders the best of both worlds in one product, such as Boral Building Products’ reversible Shiplap-Nickel Gap siding profile in its TruExterior poly-ash siding and trim line, enabling builders to install the new profile with either a smooth or wood-grain side exposed. A rabbeted edge ensures panels fit together perfectly to create authentic spacing.
