What is Lap Siding?

Also known as “clapboard siding,” lap is a type of siding in which each board partially overlaps with the next, giving your home a picturesque appearance. Typically, lap siding can be found on more recently-built homes.

The Benefits of Lap Siding

Highlight Current Features

Lap siding is often paired with other home siding materials and can help highlight your stucco, stone, or brick siding.

Many Material Options

In the past, lap siding was typically only done with wood. However, with the advances in siding technology, it’s also available in materials such as fiber cement, vinyl, and engineered wood. This variety allows you to pick from a variety of colors to best match your home’s aesthetic.

Durable with Little Maintenance

Especially when you opt for HardiPlank or engineered wood materials, lap siding can be very durable and require very little effort to maintain. Combine those two features and you have sturdy, low-maintenance siding that will last for years to come.
