Vertical vinyl siding can offer historial and rustic charm

Vertical vinyl siding, often referred to as board and batten siding, provides a very unique look to your home. It is often used on historic buildings and those requiring a more rustic look. It might also be used to accentuate garages, barns and other buildings that surround a home. Board and batten design uses wider boards with narrow battens in between to hide the joints.

Vertical siding is considerably less expensive than its other siding counterparts; some home improvement experts indicate that it is three to four times less expensive than brick siding, wood siding, fiber cement siding or stone siding. It also provides easy maintenance with soap, water, a soft brush and a garden hose. Many different colors are now available and because the color is blended into the siding during the manufacturing process, it doesn't fade.

Most vinyl siding manufacturers offer a similar line of products with some differences. CertainTeed and Heartland have the following vertical siding products.
