There are a number of different ways you can side your home: traditional siding made from aluminum or vinyl, stucco, wood siding, brick, and more. But one option that stretches back at least a couple hundred years and has a distinctive look compared to all the others is board and batten siding. No matter where your home is located, from Acworth, Alpharetta, Athens, Atlanta, Kennesaw, Marietta, as well as the surrounding areas, when you have the team from Peachstate Windows put board and batten siding on your home, you will immediately get people looking longer at your house because it stands apart from the rest of the neighborhood.
What Is Board and Batten Siding?
For so much of the siding that is on homes today, you will find it to be horizontal in nature. Board and batten siding is vertical in nature, which helps to make it more distinctive. First, there are wide boards that are attached to the home, and then there are narrow boards, called battens, that go over the seams between the wide boards. This helps to make the siding waterproof but also gives the home some different textures with the battens. Coloring of board and batten siding is whatever you desire, as you can spray the siding with the color of your choice.
Today, modern board and batten siding is more often done with panels to cover large areas of the home, with battens added at the seams but also at regular intervals across the panels to simulate how it was done in years past. Whichever way you do your board and batten siding, the team from Peachstate Windows can make your home look unique and attractive.
How Board and Batten Siding Is Used
When choosing to have board and batten siding on your home, there are now many different options that you can pick from to help make your home stand out from your neighbor’s homes. Starting with the battens themselves, you can opt for a thinner batten or a thicker batten. You may also not want to use board and batten siding for your whole home, but only for upper story sections. If you have a small part of your Acworth, Alpharetta, Athens, Atlanta, Kennesaw, Marietta, or the surrounding area home that stands out from the rest of your home, you may have that full part done with board and batten siding to stand out as an architectural feature. No matter what you have in mind, the team from Peachstate Windows can make it happen. Give them a call today.
