Boost Curb Appeal with Lap Siding

lap sidingSiding comes in a variety of styles, among of which includes lap siding. This type is highly sought after among homeowners in Spokane. There are multiple versions of this siding variety, which we’ll go over and explain their respective benefits.

Horizontal Dutch Lap Siding

This is a typical variant that also goes by the name clapboard siding. The planks are a bit thicker at the bottom than they are at the top. They overlap from the top downward. A lot of homeowners really like the appearance, though the overlap is actually intended for producing a watertight seal and minimizing water seepage.

Horizontal lap siding is especially popular in cottage-style and beach-front properties.

Shiplap Siding

Unlike Dutch lap, shiplap siding doesn’t overlap. The panels have the illusion of being butted against each other, creating a more seamless and smooth surface. Shiplap isn’t exclusive to the home exterior; some homeowners also use shiplap siding for the interior.
This siding type uses a tongue-and-groove system for installation. This isn’t unlike the way laminate floorboards are fitted together.

Fiber Cement Lap Siding

Fiber cement comes in a plethora of styles. The boards may overlap like in horizontal Dutch siding. The surface can have varying textures, including stone and wood grains that provide a natural and earthy appearance.

While more expensive, this siding is durable and resistant to weather extremes, burrowing pests, and moisture. Apart from the occasional cleaning, little maintenance is required.
