Dutch Lap Siding Prices
Dutch lap siding prices range from $2.75 to $8 psf completely installed - including the cost of the panels, all additional materials and the installation. Dutch lap siding is one of the most popular styles of panels or boards due to the strong shadow lines and visual interest that it can add to a home.
Dutch Lap Siding Basics
Dutch lap boards are built to appear as if you took a flat board and rotated out the bottom edge a half inch or inch from the wall. Another way to think of it is that the top edge is cut thinner than the bottom edge so that the top edge tucks slightly up under the board on top of it. This differs from completely flat boards that is often associated with clapboard siding or with the boards used in a board and batten style (the battens project out from the wall, but the wider boards are perfectly straight).
Sizes And Options
Dutch lap comes in all different materials, including vinyl, fiber cement, composites and traditional wood siding. The boards are available in multiple lengths, the most popular of which are 8', 12' and 16'. They are also available in a number of different profiles, the most popular of which are 4" wide, 4.5" wide, 5" wide and 6" wide.
