Clapboard siding is a type of siding made from wedge-shaped boards which are designed to overlap with each other. The individual boards used in clapboard siding are known as clapboards; clapboard siding may also be referred to as bevel, lap, or weatherboard siding. Many people find clapboard siding aesthetically pleasing, and it is associated especially with frame homes.
Hardboard & OSB
Hardboard and OSB siding are engineered wood products that can offer many benefits. A large part of the attraction is the price; hardboard and OSB are usually less expensive than solid wood. Hardboard and OSB also come in many styles and designs, ranging from traditional lap siding to rustic board-and-batten to even a stucco look-alike. Others appreciate hardboard and OSB’s smooth surface, which finishes quite well. But while this uniform surface, free of knots and other defects can be a virtue, it also can lack the character of solid wood. Most agree, however, that wood-composite siding looks more “natural” than vinyl or aluminum.
