Board and Batten Siding
The board and batten exterior siding style has been quite popular for over 200 years and is recently gaining even more popularity. This style has a very classic look that is often associated with the modern farmhouse look as well as craftsman style architecture.
This siding style is a variant of vertical or panel siding. The panels are installed with wide vertical boards or panels on the bottom and narrow batten strips on the top trim. The look can easily be changed by varying the space between the battens and the width of the boards. This makes this siding style very versatile, which adds to its popularity.
The vertical boards create a beautiful, clean, and modern look. This siding style lends itself very well to be installed on a variety of house types and different architecture styles. You can give your home a more rustic or contemporary aesthetic, depending on what you are looking for and the design you like.
Traditionally, this siding style was used on barns and modern farmhouses. Because of the creative possibilities and variations this style lends itself to, it has become more widely used. It can even be combined with other siding styles to create unique designs and looks.
No matter if you have the board and batten style siding installed on your entire home or as an accent combined with another style, you are sure to love this beautiful design. You have many options within this style and it can be made to fit your home perfectly.
What Materials are used for the Board and Batten Style?
Board and batten style exterior siding can be made out of a number of different materials. Traditionally, this siding was made out of strips of wood. However, developments in siding techniques and manufacturing have changed the products drastically, which gives homeowners many more choices.
Wood is expensive and requires regular maintenance. Fortunately, there are alternative materials that are much less demanding and cost-effective for homeowners, such as fiber cement. There are now companies specializing in offering fiber cement, such as James Hardie, in the board and batten style as well. That way you are sure to have high-quality siding that will not only look great but also last for a long time.
