Dutch lap vinyl siding: Offering colors and options for any home

Dutch lap wood siding has been popular for hundreds of years due to the unique shadow lines and definition it can give a home's exterior walls. These features, and the resulting devoted homeowner following, are a few of the reasons why vinyl siding manufacturers added the style to their model lines during the early days of vinyl siding. Back in those days, the siding was so thin you could almost see through it. There weren't many style options, and if you were lucky, you had four or five colors to choose from. The world of vinyl siding has gone through quite a few changes since those early times.
