Lap Siding Basics

Lap siding, also sometimes referred to as clapboard, bevel or colonial clapboard is a type of horizontal cladding where the top edge of the board is smaller in width than the bottom edge. This is a traditional and classic look that adds elegance and a nice aesthetic to any home. Lap siding can be made with a real wood board, vinyl boards or even a fiber cement or composite panel. The idea behind lap siding is that the difference in width from the top to the bottom of the board helps to wick away water and moisture, thereby not allowing any moisture to get underneath or behind the boards and into the undersheathing.

Vinyl siding will typically run at the lower end of this price range, while real wood and fiber cement products will run towards the upper end of this price range.
