Board and Batten or ‘Vertical’ siding has been around for hundreds of years. Sometimes referred to as barn siding, the “American Classic” is a vertical design created by using wide boards, such as cedar or pine, spaced with narrower strips, the battens, covering the places where the wide boards come together.  Adding distinction to any home, it is still one of the most popular home siding styles used today.
