Western Red Cedar Board and Batten Siding
Board and batten siding is a design where boards are installed vertically and the joins are covered by another board (batten).
Most commonly board and batten applications use the resawn textured face out, but occasoinally you will see the material installed with a smooth texture out.
The most common board widths for board and batten are going to be 8″, 10″ and 12″, with the batten widths being 2″, 3″ or 4″. Board and batten is often installed with knotty materials, but for more upscale projects it is not uncommon to see clear grade materials used.
All siding options are available in a variety of grades ranging from vertical grain clear to utility. BCL can offer any size of siding you may need. Click here for a Guide to Installing Board and Batt Siding.
Board and batten is a type of siding installation where you install wide vertical planks first (boards) and then install thin vertical strips over the top of the plans, where they join together. This completely covers the gaps between boards AND adds another dimension to the overall look of your siding.
