Clapboard Siding Prices
Homeowners can expect clapboard siding prices to vary between $3 and $6 per sq ft, this price is an installed price. The advantage to clapboard is that it is durable and it can be matched to your home décor with ease. This lap siding is mostly used for the outside of the home with a top edge that is thicker, this means the board overlaps the one beneath.

The low to middle range panels will be priced at $1 to $1.75, this price is per sq ft. It is normal for the lower end woods to be T-111 or plywood (these will be found at Home Depot and Lowes). Similar to Hardie Board fiber cement, clapboard is often already painted or primed, but at this price the boards might not have this undercoat and you will need to pay for this to be completed on site. You can expect to pay between $1.75 and $2.50 per sq ft for middle to premium clapboard panels.
