Clapboard

Clapboard siding was originally made by Native Americans with the timber from the land on which they built their dwellings. This tradition continued for centuries until modern industry, economics and home building techniques took over. Clapboard was also used in certain parts of Europe where wood-framed construction was more dominant.

Vinyl siding clapboard profiles are available in single, double and triple “courses,” or rows and at varying heights, or “reveals” on each profile. Examples of popular clapboard profiles are shown below.
