Board And Batten Basics

Board and battens are a type of vertical siding that uses a flat board, which is similar to clapboard siding (except it is placed vertically). These boards will have a width anywhere from 8 to 12 inches across and be anywhere from 6 feet to 12 feet in length. The battens are typically 1 to 3 inches in width and will usually be the same height as the boards. The battens are placed between the boards equidistant apart. This creates a rather classic and, some would say, somewhat rural look for a home.

-- Vinyl Siding: $1.25 to $1.75 psf --

-- Engineered Wood: $1.50 to $3 psf --

Additional Project Materials
