Channel and Lap Siding

Channel (a.k.a. Lap) Siding is a popular type of siding and is used whenever a rustic appearance is desired. This siding option is also quite versatile and can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally. In channel or lap 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. It can come in a variety of different sizes, patterns and grades. This siding type can also be supplied kiln dried or green/unseasoned. 

The two most common patterns for lap siding are going to be shiplap with a center match pattern or channel rustic. With all of the lap siding patterns you have the option to install the material vertically, horizontally or at an angle, which allows the owner to choose a very specific look for their home or business.  Our most commonly sold lap pattern is the channel rustic, which has an attractive resawn face grade face. We do have the ability to create a smooth face lap siding through our specialty milling options. 

All Lap siding options are available in a variety of grades ranging from vertical grain clear to utility. BCL can offer any size of siding you may need.
