Board And Batten Siding Pictures
Board and battens has traditionally been known as barn siding. This is because it is often used on barns. However, board and battens are becoming more common for use on homes and other buildings due to its attractive appearance and relatively low cost.
This cladding is just one of many options available if you are looking for a natural wood exterior to your home. It is one of the more inexpensive wood options and provides a rather rustic feel – although it does require some maintenance.
This cladding is a type of vertical wood cladding that is mounted on the walls by alternating 8″ or 12″ wide boards with 2″ or 3″ wide vertical battens that extend out an inch and a half. Depending on what type of material you use, you can have a very rustic look or a more refined look.
