Lap sidings are normally supplied in a variety of patterns either clear or knotty grades and with a smooth or saw textured face.
Channel siding is a popular type of lap siding and is used whenever a rustic appearance is desired. A versatile siding, it can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally. In channel siding the profile of each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it creating a channel that gives shadow line effects, provides excellent weather protection and allows for dimensional movement. When custom milling a lap or shiplap siding, the amount of reveal can be modified from flush up to 2”.
