LP CanExel siding finish

A Beautiful Finish That Captures Attention

For more than 40 years, Canadians have trusted LP® CanExel® prefinished siding to protect, enhance and improve their homes. With a beautiful finish, lasting durability, an authentic wood-grain look and a proud legacy, CanExel siding goes above and beyond to create products that can be enjoyed for years. And because it’s CanExel prefinished siding, every product is backed by a strong warranty from a company that was born in Canada.

Let’s take a closer look at one of the most recognizable features of CanExel siding: the beautiful finish.

Quality Isn’t an Accident

Quality is never an accident and this siding’s uniquely beautiful finish proves this point. It takes a multi-step process to create a finish that will stand up to everything from intense cold to intense heat.

To create the advanced finish, we apply five separate coats of industrial-strength, heat-cured paint. This results in much more longevity than paint that has been air-dried. Once the paint is cured, we apply a clear, protective edge sealer for increased resistance to moisture. This process provides increased resistance to cracking, splitting, warping, splintering and buckling of the substrate, so homeowners can feel confident in the lasting beauty of their home.

Premium Valspar® Paint

We utilize premium-quality Valspar® paint in our finishing process. High-quality paint such as Valspar® provides greater durability because it has more resin and better activators that help form the protective covering that sticks to siding. Valspar paint also delivers better adhesion and requires fewer applications, which means time and cost savings for you.

CanExel colours lend themselves to an extensive range of architectural styles – to create a dramatic effect or integrate seamlessly with the environment. You’ll also find distinctive profiles to choose from, including CanExel Ridgewood™ lap siding and CanExel Ced’R-Vue® siding.
