did you actually model the siding in, or are you trying to create a bump material?

The easiest is to use a pattern; if you want your lines to show up you may have to increase your image size DRASTICALLY which in turn increases the rendering time greatly as well, and you still may not get the line/shadow definition you're looking.

 

The best for rendering is to model your wall using sweeps; edit the wall family, add sweeps, etc. You can search the forums for more detailed info as this issue comes up quite often.

Patterns do not render.

 

The easiest is to assign the flat wall a lap siding material.  These will render correctly from a distance.  The material has both a color file and a bump file that will give the rendering the shadow effect of the ship lap.

 

If you want to drastically increase your file size and rendering time, you could add sweeps to the walls - best done in the wall definition - BUT - sweeps will not cut at a vertical angle so if you have any angle conditions - like a sloping roof - this will not work here.  If you have that condition, you wouldprobably have to create bsom in-place families.

WW, you're correct. I meant pattern : wall material color.

 

However, I have always found that even with using the siding material (with a black and white bump map, the strongest contrast you can get), the lines will not always render accurately at a distance unless you increase the image size. Up close they will, but not from afar. Same goes for standing seam metal roofs. That's just my experience.
