If you’re tired of brick, stucco, and vinyl siding, a board and batten exterior might be the perfect fix.

If you can’t rattle off a list of exterior siding options for homes from memory, board and batten siding might not mean much to you. You might recognize it as a home exterior option that’s not brick, stucco, or vinyl siding that sometimes catches your eye, but you might not have known the name for it. That’s all right, but it’s time to get familiar with board and batten, because you’re about to see it everywhere.

Board and batten is a siding or paneling style that pairs vertical planks of wood (the boards) with smaller strips of wood (the batten), which cover the joints between each plank to prevent leaking. According to Jay Kallos, senior vice president of architecture at homebuilder Ashton Woods, the style probably originated with barns and other outhouses, where it was a practical, relatively easy exterior cladding solution for structures that didn’t need to be particularly elegant or ready to impress visitors.

Get Professional Advice for Colorado Springs Board and Batten Siding

The vertical element of board and batten gives homes added texture. It plays with shadow, which allows homes’ appearances to shift with the sun over the course of the day. And it’s comfortable and familiar, with a nostalgic bend—like that of the farmhouse kitchen—that reminds us of less complicated times. With the modern farmhouse and rustic-chic looks still going strong, it’s no surprise that board and batten is being used more and more, though this siding look isn’t limited to farmhouse or rustic homes. In fact, it’s surprisingly versatile.

I want to compliment Soco Siding for the fine work your crew did in putting on our new sidings. Your employees were extremely pleasant and conscientious. The job took two days to complete and on both days your employees made sure that the premises were clean before they left.
