English term or phrase:clapboard sidings
Wood clapboard siding gives a house the charm and look of a historic home. This attractive wood siding is available in a variety of finishes. It consists of horizontal wooden planks with overlapping joints. This type of home siding can require a substantial amount of maintenance to keep it in top shape including annual cleaning. It often needs to be repainted and may be susceptible to rot, mold and other outside damage. Many people choose wood clapboard, though, for its beauty and classic historic appeal.
Explanation: Can't quite explain... I've heard of this kind of siding, not very usual in the part of Spain where I live, but more common in the north....
Sometimes they refer to it as "revestimiento exterior de madera".
Anyway, hope it helps.
