The original wooden board and batten siding used wooden boards, ranging from 6 to 20 inches wide, that were nailed directly to the exterior walls. The gaps between the boards were covered by smaller boards, typically 2 to 6 inches wide, called battens. The original wooden board and batten siding was valued for its ease of installation. Of course, like all wooden siding, it did still have to be maintained. This included cleaning, painting, or even the repair or replacement of damaged boards.

Advantages of Board and Batten Vinyl Siding

Today's modern board and batten vinyl siding retains the classic appearance of the original wood siding without the associated maintenance hassles. The vinyl siding planks are molded from wooden planks to imprint the grain directly into the vinyl siding. The colors are also molded directly into the material as well. The resulting board and batten vinyl siding is more durable than wood siding, never needs to be painted, and is less expensive to install then wood siding.
