Steel Board and Batten Siding Can Give Your Home a Uniquely Elegant Look
Board and batten siding is a unique way to add a sophisticated flair to your home’s exterior appearance. This type of siding, often installed as vertical siding, usually combines a base layer of wide wood boards accented with narrow outer wood strips called battens. The battens create protruding vertical lines across the wall. It can certainly provide a distinct, contemporary appearance when compared to more traditional horizontal siding. And while originally found only in rural areas, more and more homeowners are now turning to this unique style of siding for its stylish, rustic appeal.
Yet, one of the concerns of traditional board and batten siding is that it is often made from wood. While wood can provide the rustic charm many homeowners prefer, you’ll find it is highly susceptible to a number of issues that can break down and wreak havoc on your home’s exterior AND your wallet.
For example, wood requires frequent painting and staining to maintain its clean, attractive appearance, and not to mention protect it from the outside elements. Without regular upkeep, wood can quickly warp, rot, and crack, allowing water to seep in behind the siding, leaving the home with a less-than-ideal exterior.
In addition to frequent maintenance requirements, it is also highly susceptible to the effects of wood-damaging insects. From termites to wood-eating ants, wood siding is a breeding ground for a variety of insects that can cause costly damage to a home’s exterior.
