What is Board and Batten Siding?

Board and batten siding is a prominent type of exterior cladding used on buildings, typically residential construction. It consists of wide vertical boards with narrower strips of wood (or other compatible material) that cover the seams between the boards. It creates a distinct exterior, and the alternating wide and narrow elements bring a customized “look” to the home.

Board and batten wall paneling has been used for ages, and is only continuing to grow in popularity as the construction technique is not only aesthetically appealing to potential and renovating homeowners, it also provides additional protection against harsh elements.

Board and Batten with Fiber Cement Siding

Traditional board and batten siding is constructed using wood. It gives a familiar, rustic aesthetic to the home. Unfortunately, wood tends to rot and warp. Wood board and batten siding also requires year-round maintenance to keep its original appearance.

When using traditional wood materials, board and batten doesn’t age very well, since water can infiltrate the seams easier, and can cause the siding pieces to expand, shift, and show noticeable signs of corrosion.

Board and batten can now be achieved by using modern materials, like fiber cement from Allura, which is more durable and requires less maintenance than traditional wood. Unlike wood, Allura’s fiber cement siding holds onto its color and appearance, and the board and batten design will look fresh for years.

Even better, customization is endless when it comes to fiber cement siding for the home. Not only does this siding display a “real wood” look, there’s also the option to customize the width of each board for an even more personalized appearance.

5 Design Ideas for Stone with Board and Batten Siding

On its own, the board and batten style is most often associated with a modern farmhouse aesthetic or traditional ranch house style, but there are many extended possibilities when you add stone to the equation!

A stone facade – whether used as column posts, foundation skirting, or as an accent wall – can add immediate character to the home. It is often used to dial up visual texture and add a natural element to the exterior. Natural stone comes in different color palettes, including beige, gray-blue, and red tones, but it can also be painted to achieve color matching or contrasting goals that complement the board and batten.
