Engineered wood is becoming especially popular in Minnesota and Wisconsin as it gives the natural appearance of wood without the pitfalls of using a more vulnerable product. We use LP Smart Siding which is known for warm and beauty of traditional mood with durability of engineered wood. Engineered wood can resist decay and harsh weather. Other advantages include custom lengths as it cuts like traditional wood. It can be left in longer segments to give fewer seams, or cut shorter for dimension and character. Engineered wood is lighter than fiber cement which makes handling and installation faster, easier, and often more affordable.
