Cedar : Board & Batten Siding

Board-and-batten is a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins. There is no set board or batten widths - various combinations are used to create different looks suitable for large or small-scale applications. A frequent combination is 1"x3" battens and 1"x10" boards. This can also be reversed with boards installed over battens to create a deep channel effect. Board-on Board siding is a vertical design utilizing a wider batten to create even spaced appearance. A frequent combination is 1”x6” boards over 1”x10” boards creating a 6” on 6” profile.

Rough sawn boards or boards surfaced on one side and two edges (S1S2E) are commonly used for board-and-batten siding. Sizes are from 1"x 2" to 1"x12".
