Board and Batten Siding

Board-and-batten is a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins. There are no set board or batten widths various combinations are used to create different looks suitable for large or small scale applications. A frequent combination is 1 x 3 in. battens and 1 x 10 in. boards. This can also be reversed with boards installed over battens to create a deep channel effect.
