Dryloc, a pioneer in the home siding and trim installation industry, recently announced that it has agreed to use LP®SmartSide®siding and trim products with its new, patent-pending flashing and clip installation system.
Together, Dryloc and Louisiana-Pacific Corp. (LP) have created a combination that is expected to transform the appearance and durability of residential structures. By eliminating the need for face nailing, the revolutionary Dryloc system makes trim and siding installation durable and self-leveling. The Dryloc system also reduces labor costs for home builders and increases their efficiency on the jobsite.
With issues such as expansion and contraction, nail penetration, moisture, caulk failure and wind sheer serving as constant concerns in the home construction industry, Dryloc has created a simple, cost-effective installation system that greatly improves the look of homes while protecting such structures from failure and other costly issues.
In addition, Dryloc's installation technology and LP SmartSide products have been rigorously tested together in some of the world's harshest wood siding environments. Moisture, fungal decay, termites, and wind sheer tests exceeding 205 pounds per square foot (PSF) were no match for walls featuring the Dryloc/LP SmartSide combination.
"We have created the best and most modern system of installing siding and trim and feel that partnering with LP has been a natural fit for us," said Gary Monteer, founder of Dryloc. "A structure's exterior is always exposed to outside elements. Making that exterior problem-free is not a perfect science but we feel our system is as close to perfect as any has ever been."
Initially available to contractors and home builders in select markets, Dryloc's revolutionary flashing and clip system - combined with the reputation and durability of LP SmartSide siding and trim - will help builders increase their efficiency and reduce callbacks.
"LP is a trusted name when it comes to building materials, and LP SmartSide products are a favorite among home builders because they are easy to work with, install quickly and are cost effective," said Ben Skoog, business marketing manager for LP's engineered siding business. "Combined with Dryloc's installation system, we are able to fulfill our ongoing commitment to providing innovative, cost-effective, quality building products and solutions."
LP SmartSide products offer the look and feel of real wood on a home without many of the problems often associated with wood. LP SmartSide is treated with a zinc borate treatment that resists fungal decay and termites.
Available in a wide range of colors, Dryloc offers a large selection of pre-built and ready-to-install components including horizontal lap siding, plank and batten, inside and outside corners, soffit and fascia, vents column and beam wraps.

Based in Spanish Fork, Utah, Dryloc was created by Gary Monteer, a designer and residential developer for over 30 years, who set out to create a system that would solve all of the problems associated with traditional siding installation techniques, while maintaining the charm and architectural appeal of hardboard siding. The Dryloc system accomplishes both goals and is currently in use in several housing developments throughout the country. For more information on Dryloc and its system, visit.
