Lap Siding

Lap siding is another one of the most commonly used siding options in the US. Our team recommends lap sidings as the first upgrade option. It is available in 4”, 5”, 6”, 8”, 9.5”, and Cottage. Typically, lap siding comes in a 16’ length with a pre-primed, ready to paint, wood grained texture. Preferred Garages, Inc. offers a couple of the above sizes in a smooth texture if you prefer that style. All lap siding products require structural under sheathing to help strengthen the walls of the garage.

Real Stucco Siding

Another upgraded siding option for your custom-built garage is real stucco. Real stucco garage siding is incredibly durable, stands up well to harsh weather elements such as rain, snow, and wind, is low maintenance, and is resistant to fire and insects. Real stucco siding is applied with a vapor barrier, metal lathe, hard coat, and lastly the color coat. When deciding to use real stucco siding for your garage project, our team will help you decide between various colors and textures.

Stuccato Board

Staccato board siding is similar to lap siding, but is available in a 4×8, 4×9, or 4×10 sheet. It has a hand troweled texture, comes pre-primed, and is ready for paint. One of the benefits of using staccato board siding for your custom-built garage is that it is a much less expensive garage siding option versus real stucco siding.
