Looking for a way to accent a gable or area of your home? James Hardie board and batten siding is a great way to get a different splash of texture without breaking the budget. Board and Batten siding is by a two part installation process. First a four foot by ten foot sheet of James Hardie material is installed on the wall. This is the “board”. We then go through and install 1 x 3 strips of James Hardie trim over top of the sheets. These are the battens.
Compared to other types of accents like shakes and stone, board and batten has a better price point to help with the budget. It is available in smooth or woodgrain and in all of James Hardie’s colors.
