Lap Siding For Your Home

What is Lap Siding?

Lap siding is designed to create a watertight seal for your home, keeping out the elements and helping to avoid any structural damage. To form this seal the lap siding varies from traditional siding style in two ways: design and installation. These two factors vary across the two main types of lap siding: Clapboard and Dutch Lap.

Styles of Lap Siding

Lap siding comes in many different materials and styles with widths from 3 to 7 inches and lengths of 12, 16 and 20 foot. Available in vinyl or polymer, there are 12 traditional types of lap siding. It is also available in double or triple “courses,” which imitates wood boards.

Straight Lap Siding

This style of lap siding utilizes long, even planks that are slightly thicker at the bottom. Each plank has a slight curve to it from top to bottom which helps to shed water away from the home. The planks are installed from the top of the structure to the bottom, creating a water tight seal.

Dutch Lap Siding

With dutch lap the installation method is the same. The main difference is the way the planks are structured. Instaed of the slight curve with a wide base that striaght lap offers, with dutch lap the bottom portion of the plank is beveled out. This bevel creates a shadowed edge along the top and gives the home a more refined finish.

What Our Siding Customers Are Saying

  • PRO Home Improvement was the right company for me!!! PRO was not the first company I talked to when I decided to vinyl side my house, and they were not the lowest price, but they were the most believable and they understood what I was trying to accomplish. Their process from beginning to end was professional with honesty and integrity. They said what they could do and when they could do it, then did it better than expected. Representatives from other companies did not seem to be interested in me and were not specific about what and when. I am an extremely over-scheduled mother and grandmother who was nervous about tackling a much-needed home improvement. Just about the time I had decided not to talk to another installation company, PRO's Dwight Conger came to my house and explained everything I needed to know to me and one of my granddaughters. He was very polite and patient and seemed very experienced. The pricing was believable and only slightly higher than another company that I did not trust. Thank-you Dwight, Keith, John, Tim and all of your installers for doing fantastic work and for being exactly ON TIME to make this grandmother very happy & satisfied.

  • They came on time as scheduled and did an amazing job. I had a pretty high expectation as to what the job should look like, and they succeeded in raising the bar when the job was complete. There was a lot of complications with my project since it was vertical siding and many electrical outlets to work around, but they did it all with complete professionalism. I also had the roof and gutters done by two other different crews from Pro Home Improvement and the high standards continued with each project. I would recommend anyone reading this to consider Pro Home Improvement, because it was a major Home Improvement done to my satisfaction.
