5 Top Reasons to Choose Diamond Kote® Siding

Save yourself years of worry with the industry leader

Your home will be your fortress for many years to come, so you want to make sure you and your family are well-protected from the elements. You also don’t want to have to spend unnecessary time painting, repairing, or replacing the siding to keep it in good repair and looking great. Enter pre-finished siding made by Diamond Kote® pre-finished LP® SmartSide®.

What are the top 5 reasons to choose Diamond Kote siding?

1. Durability
Diamond Kote® leads the industry in pre-finished LP® SmartSide® products, and is backed by a 30-Year No Fade Warranty, and an overall 5/50-Year Limited Warranty. Their products are exclusively built on LP® SmartSide®, an engineered wood siding, and treated with a SmartGuard® process to withstand extreme temperatures, high humidity, freeze/thaws, fungal decay, and termites.

LP® SmartSide® products resist impacts of everyday bumps, stands up to harsh weather, and resists hail damage better than fiber cement and vinyl. NASA testing of LP® SmartSide® siding has also shown that it resists impacts better from baseballs, golf balls, river rocks, and marbles traveling at high speeds.

2. Appearance Choices
You can choose from 30 different colors, or create a custom color; you are only limited by your preferences. Diamond Kote re-manufactures LP® SmartSide® into a hidden fastener system. This uniform, attractive finish stands the test of time with no peeling, chalking or fading, and includes a DuoBlend Premium Collection that mimics natural and distressed wood. The Diamond Kote pre-finish process includes a proprietary paint, which uses the purest metal oxide colorants extracted from rocks. These natural, raw pigments don’t fade over time, and keep your siding vibrant while protecting it from destructive ultraviolet rays that cause synthetic tints to fade quickly.

3. Low Maintenance
Diamond Kote is designed to be low maintenance, and resists the buildup of dirt and grime, while also locking out moisture. It’s easy to clean, and the durable finish reduces your maintenance costs and labor over many other siding choices. Their coloring process provides consistent paint coverage by breaking down  the finish into smaller particles, allowing it to bond better for flawless coverage which can’t be duplicated with traditional onsite and flood coat applications. The product is finished by being sent through the oven to create a durable scratch-resistant finish.

4. Convenient Handling
Their packaging system reduces the risk of scuffing and scratching during transportation and handling. Their siding and shakes are packaged in 4-packs, their trim in 2-packs, and their one-piece corners are individually wrapped. Diamond Kote’s RigidStack™ siding is a great example of the smartly designed, durable options available to make installation faster and easier while maintaining superior strength and weather-resistance.

5. Ecological Responsibility
Diamond Kote paints are water borne, for low-V.O.C emissions, and their semi-trucks are powered by compressed natural gas, reducing greenhouse gas emissions up to 20%. The entire manufacturing process is also earth-friendly, and run in accordance with Sustainable Forestry Initiative® standards. They use wood from small, fast-growing trees for less waste and better resource use. This process uses the entire log, with no urea-formaldehyde, and low-emitting safe resins as a binder. And the zinc-borate in LP’s SmartGuard® manufacturing process is a naturally-occurring material.
