Let’s have a look at what makes board and batten such an interesting option, and why you should use it for your home.

Board and Batten is Long Lasting

While other types of siding such as traditional horizontal installations can require a bit of upkeep to maintain, board and batten does not. As long as everything about the installation went smoothly, you can expect your board and batten siding to hold up for many years.

Board and Batten Siding Adds Value to your Home

One of the main reasons people choose to install board and batten steel siding is that it looks very stylish. Although originally designed for barns, builders have perfected the art of applying board and batten to residential homes as well. A well-done installation will add some serious style points to your home, and you should see that reflected in its overall resale value when the time finally comes for you to sell.

Board and Batten Siding is Very Cheap to Maintain

The cost of installing board and batten can vary widely, depending on what kind of material you use, how big your home is, and what your labor costs are like. One thing that remains consistent, however, is the cost of repairs. Board and batten uses individual pieces rather than large sheets of siding, making it very cost effective to maintain should you need repairs.
