J & T Roofing Contractors

Today's contemporary home is planned from exterior to interior designs. As a homeowner, there is much planning that goes inside the house. The same principle must apply to the exterior of the house. One of the fastest rising materials for house exteriors is the Dutch Lap Siding. It is a material that is used specifically for residential construction, and is considered one of the greatest innovations that came from traditional siding except that there are decorative details on top of the board. The groove in this type of siding provides a significant depth that is lacking in the traditional sidings. This depth allows for an intricate design look that is considered architecturally beautiful. It was popularized in the Mid-Atlantic region in the US, although the inspiration comes from Northern Europe because wood construction was popular in the country. It also has multiple courses with at least three to five inches reveals. This makes the siding quite sturdy.
