Why We Love Board and Batten
These days, what’s old is new again, and nowhere is this truer than with home exterior remodeling. Many of the home design styles that were once popular are starting to pick up steam once more as homeowners and designers begin to realize the value of these vintage looks.
One look that continues to impress is board and batten siding. This attractive traditional siding look evokes a sense of craftsmanship and timeless elegance that is rare these days. And thanks to changing trends in home exterior design, board and batten is having its moment in the sun once more.
In this post from our Minnesota home exterior pros at Budget Exteriors, we’re breaking down some of the reasons we love board and batten siding. Give us a call to talk about siding options for your Twin Cities home today!
Board and batten is a traditional siding design often associated with older American homes and farms. In the early days of America, barns and homes didn’t need to be built in a grand style. They simply needed to be attractive and easy to maintain.
These same reasons are exactly what has drawn modern homeowners and home exterior designers to the look today in the search for alternatives to brick and traditional siding. The wide vertical planks used in today’s board and batten have the same visual appeal of early American siding but are manufactured with modern building materials like vinyl. This gives homeowners the charm and authenticity of traditional building design with a greater durability and lower maintenance.
Here are just a few more reasons to fall in love with board and batten siding:
● No paint touch-ups are required
● Easy to wash with a garden hose
● A timeless design that adds curb appeal
● Versatile enough to use alone or to create texture
