How to Get the Look: Board and Batten

Board and batten siding is a traditional type of exterior cladding that consists of wide vertical boards with narrower strips of wood that run vertically along the seams between the boards. In addition to creating incredible visual texture, this distinct siding style brings immediate character to the home.

Board and batten cladding has been used for ages, so it carries a very familiar appearance that can be experimented in fresh ways. The versatility of this siding style is another reason why it has been continuing to grow in popularity. Now that modern materials can recreate the board and batten style easily – but with much more ease than wood – it’s an easy choice for homeowners who want a great combination of both style and durability.

The Best Board and Batten is Made with Modern Materials

Wood was the traditional building material used to construct board and batten siding in the past, and while natural wood siding can have a pretty appearance – at first – it is very difficult to maintain and prone to moisture damage, peeling, and overall deterioration. Unless homeowners are up for year-round maintenance to keep wood board and batten looking its best, it’s a good idea to switch to a modern material like fiber cement.

Unlike wood, Allura’s fiber cement holds onto its color and appearance, so dark gray board and batten siding can continue to look fresh without the common blemishes that compromise wood siding.
