Board and Batten Siding

While looking for more visuals of board and batten siding, I found a great post.

From Build Blog:

Board and batten siding is the underdog of siding systems, but we like it for the following reasons:

  • It has the potential to be visually clean and crisp
  • It has a timeless look and weathers nicely if implemented correctly
  • The system takes the natural expansion and contraction of materials into consideration
  • It’s been around for a long time, carpenters and siders are familiar with it
  • It’s durable

    I think that when you are remodeling you want to be around the project as much as possible!
    If you can do a lot of it yourself that helps on quality and money.
    Usually the best job done is the one you do because you know how you want it done and you
    want it done nicely because you’ll be seeing it everyday – the contracter wont!
    Thanks for this blog it had a lot of great information!
