What Is Lap Siding?
Lap siding is made of long boards that overlap each other—which is where it got its name: lap siding. This timeless-looking siding is available in a variety of materials including our favorite, James Hardie fiber cement—the most durable siding material on the market. Lap siding is made up of horizontal planks and comes in two style choices:
- Traditional Lap Siding—This classic option is made of flat, narrow boards that are curved on the bottom, which creates a distinct shadowing effect.
- Beaded Lap Siding—This beautiful option has a thicker bead at the bottom of each piece and delivers a smooth finish inspired by coastal homes.
Lap siding is also known as horizontal siding, traditional siding, and clapboard siding. It’s the most cost-effective siding style in the industry because it is so popular. Siding cost is also based on your siding material choice.
