Prefinished Cypress Dutch Lap Siding
Cypress Dutch Lap Siding is an exterior siding profile that has been milled with a radius face, known as wood profile 105 (WP105), on the top of each board. When installed horizontally, this radius area will cast a classic shadowline that is attractive to designers and homeowners alike. Over the years this profile has been called several different names including german lap, german dutch lap, cove dutch lap, drop lap, drop, cove lap, wood pattern 105, wp105, dutch shiplap, or german shiplap.
The profile is very similar to traditional shiplap and channel rustic siding in which the boards overlap each other in the same manner. Since Cypress Dutch Lap, Cypress Shiplap and Cypress Channel Rustic siding profiles share the same edge profile, they are installed exactly like each other. This unique profile is copied on almost every type of siding material on the market including vinyl siding because of the unique shadow line it provides.

Products are available with a natural translucent stain, semi-transparent or semi-solid stain, primed or primed, and top coated with a solid color finish. Our pre-finishing process will seal each board against moisture and protect the wood from harmful UV rays. When factory finished, there are no runs, drips, or shrink lines, and the finish is applied to all six sides of the material (face, back, edges, and ends). Custom colors are available - call us for details.
