Benefits & Beauty of Lap Siding

by Dakota Storage Buildings, on June 28, 2016

Lap Siding

We offer wood lap siding for our storage sheds because it's durable—and attractive.

It's called "lap" because of being installed in overlapping horizontal rows on the exterior of a building. The unique overlapping structure serves to protect the outer surface from the elements, adds appealing aesthetic quality that surpasses ordinary wall cladding, and offers a recessed curve that aligns the top of each plank, which allows it to fit more tightly against the wall. 

We offer a selection of dependable LP® SmartSide® Lap Siding options. Resilient and long-lasting, this siding is specially engineered to withstand major weather events and pest invasion. Traditional fiber and vinyl siding will decay, weather, and crack over time.

Consider an upgrade. Adding LP®ProStruct® flooring with SmartFinish to your building will maximize its structural longevity. This premium flooring has no knots or voids, which creates a sleek and beautiful appearance, and increases the overall quality of your storage buildings due to its durable overlay. Significant increases in durability are due to Treated Wood Strand Technology that is made to resist pests, decay, warping, splitting, and cracking.
