Board and batten vinyl siding options

Board and batten style finishing refers to exterior or interior boards that alternate between wide boards and narrow strips called battens, which are mounted over the seam between the boards. The pattern can be vertical or horizontal. In reverse board and batten siding, the wide battens are mounted over the thin boards. As an example, board and batten has traditionally been used in barn construction.

Board and batten vinyl siding mimics the appearance of wood lap siding and works with both rustic and contemporary design schemes. Sturdy rustic styles feature boards of 8 inches or wider. Ask to see a variety of matching or contrasting trim and accent products.

Siding colors

Traditional color palettes include colonial blue, barn red, and spruce green. Softer contemporary hues are also available, including buff, grey, yellow and ivory.

Another consideration is whether you would like a wood grain texture or a smooth painted finish. Low gloss finish mimics the look of freshly painted wood in a variety of colors. Wood grained textures are molded from real pine or cedar boards for accurate natural details.


Approximate pricing begins at $1.50 per square foot. Look for a locking system that ensures a snug, tight fit. Insist on a robust color fade guarantee. Then relax and enjoy a highly durable, nearly maintenance free exterior finish with the look of real wood.
