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
So why isn’t board and batten siding more prominent in modern architecture? A quick Google-image search suggests that most board & batten siding systems are associated with traditional architectures – country cottages and old leaning barns. The word “rustic” comes up often when researching board and batten systems. But technically the system has everything necessary to be a serious, modern strategy for siding. So the BUILD research and development team has put together a guide to board and batten siding systems.
