Big news, Texans!
You are no longer bound to brick.
House Bill 2439 became effective on September 1, 2019. This legislation eliminated local masonry ordinances, giving you the freedom to select LP SmartSide Trim & Siding as your exterior cladding of choice – anywhere and everywhere you build in the state of Texas.
WHY CHOOSE LP SMARTSIDE:
Our engineered trim and siding products contribute significantly to the overall design aesthetic of a home and immediately evoke a sense of warmth, timeless taste, and beauty. LP SmartSide products help you bring your vision to life and create picturesque exteriors with longer-lasting curb appeal.
It's made to last.
Our proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process ensures that every LP SmartSide product is treated with our advanced formula of adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes, and zinc borate, after which a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay is bonded to the product. The result: exceptional protection against water damage, termites and fungal decay.
It stands up to the elements.
Third-party test results demonstrate that LP SmartSide lap siding resisted hail damage better than fiber cement and vinyl. In fact, the LP SmartSide warranty covers impacts from hail up to 1.75˝ in diameter. LP SmartSide lap siding is also designed to withstand tough storms with wind gusts of up to 200 miles per hour.
ABOUT THE LEGISLATION
House Bill 2439
On June 14, 2019, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 2439 into law.
The legislation, which became effective on September 1, 2019, prohibits local municipalities from dictating which materials builders must use. It gives you the freedom to use any material, anywhere in the state of Texas, as long as the material is approved by a national model building code that has been adopted by your local government. Please reference the bill itself for details and exceptions.
For more information, please visit the Office of the Texas Governor's web site or contact your local Home Builders Association.
LP SmartSide Trim & Siding products are readily available from building material dealers throughout Texas.
