Dutch Lap gained popularity in the late 1800's. It is typically joined with a shiplap overlapping joint but can also include a Tongue and Groove edge. It is typically face-nailed rather than blind-nailed as in Tongue and Groove patterns.
Dutch Lap Siding has 3/8” overlap with a 1 1/4” curved recessed edge. The Dutch Lap pattern provides excellent weather protection and installs with a minimal amount of effort and material wastage.
Dutch Lap siding is normally supplied in unseasoned knotty grades with a saw textured face side. Commonly available sizes are 1x6", 1 x 8" and 1 x 10".
DUTCH Lap has a rustic appearance and from a distance gives a slightly "log" cabin impression. Dutch Cove Lap is an option many people use when the cost of cedar logs is out of the budget.
The following California customer selected Incense Cedar milled to a 1x8" Dutch Lap pattern then factory finished with Duckback Cedar Natural Semi-Trans Stain.
