The Wall System Clapboards
Re-Connecting. A broken clapboard is easily repaired. This one was replaced with one that matches the size and type of the neighboring clapboards. With a coat of primer and two topcoats of paint, this repair will last as long as the original clapboards next to it. Plan your work: Inspect for damage once every five years and make spot repairs, as needed. Maintenance tip: Repair using methods, procedures and techniques that respect the original parts and system. Match adjacent materials in type, size and quality.
