RigidStack™ is another option to consider for LP® SmartSide® with DiamondKote® finish. RigidStack™ siding installs stronger than standard siding. It is designed with a spline and used to stack and lock together the boards for maximum performance. There are two textures to choose from, woodgrain and smooth. There are many benefits of using RigidStack siding. It is impact-resistant and extremely strong, withstanding hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter.

RigidStack™ installs beautifully and there are multiple benefits of using RigidStack™ siding.

Benefits of Using RigidStack Siding

  • Smooth lines. It eliminates the need for occasional face nails which may lead to leaks and moisture in your facade. Face nails are sometimes required when siding isn’t sitting correctly, studs aren’t perfectly straight, or there are uneven areas of your Celotex substrate. Celotex is the sheathing placed underneath the siding and used as insulation.
  • Straighter lines on the installation of your lap boards
  • Ensuring each board is the same height
  • Finer lines are created between boards
  • Two boards meeting on the same stud is eliminated

When crews don’t use RigidStack™, even on quality installs, you will see that siding crews require face nails on occasion. The most common area requiring face nails are in gables where the siding is cut at an angle leaving the bottom edge in a triangular shape and unsecured. On the top, the nail is 3/4 of an inch from the top of the board and the rest of the board is flopping around. It’s not secured to anything. This is a problem for leakage and stability.

RigidStack™ ensures none of these issues are ever possible and ensures boards are secured both at the top with a nail and at the bottom to the next board with the RigidStack™ fin. With all the benefits of using RigidStack siding on your home, we highly recommend it. At HRTI, we are big believers in RigidStack™ by LP® SmartSide® with DiamondKote® finish and it shows in our installs.
