Board and batten siding is a historic housing style with a modern twist. Originally used on barns in the early days of American development, board and batten siding is composed of wide boards that cover the majority of the vertical home exterior with thin battens that lie over and cover up the gaps between them. It’s design pairs exceptionally well with modern rustic and farmhouse home design trends that are rising in popularity across the country.
