Partners in Innovation

In the process of creating a siding system built to last, we partnered with LP® SmartSide® , an engineered wood product treated with a SmartGuard® process. This allows our siding to withstand extreme temperatures, heavy humidity, freeze/thaws and everything in between.

Rapid Growth

Thanks to our amazing employee-owners and their mission to produce siding built to last, our products have been pushed to the international stage. Our formulated finish and innovative technology first began in Schofield, Wisconsin. This manufacturing facility has expanded three times and is currently operating at over 600,000 sq ft. Due to unprecedented product demand, we have also added two additional manufacturing facilities; one in Rapid City, South Dakota and one in Stuart, Iowa. More homeowners have chosen Diamond Kote® siding over the past 5 years than ever before. Our footprint has grown from regionally to coast-to-coast, and internationally to our friends in Canada.

We're proud to say our advanced technology has made Diamond Kote the #1 Brand of recognized Pre-finished LP® SmartSide® and an industry leader in siding innovation.
