Wood siding has been used for centuries to protect and beautify buildings. It is a natural, renewable resource that can be used in many different ways. Wood siding was first developed in the United States by Benjamin Franklin in 1763.
In the early days of wood siding, it was mainly used for decorative purposes. This type of wood siding is known as clapboards or weatherboards and was not very durable. In the 1800s, wood became more popular for building homes because it was cheaper than brick and stone. This led to a major increase in demand for wood as a building material. As more people began using wood siding, builders started experimenting with new techniques to make it more durable and functional.
The most common type of modern day wood siding is shiplap or lap siding which is made from thin boards that are nailed horizontally on top of each other to cover the exterior walls of a house or building. In recent years there has been an increase in the use of vinyl siding. Wooden shingles were used to cover roofs in early America, but they were removed during the second half of the 20th century. Recent models of houses are being built with at least one side clad with shingles.
Today, wood siding can be made from both natural and synthetic materials.
Wood siding has many benefits over other types of cladding such as vinyl and aluminum. These benefits include:
- Wood is a renewable resource
- Wood does not corrode like aluminum or vinyl
- Wood does not need to be painted like vinyl or aluminum
- Wood can be made to look like brick, stone, stucco, or other styles
