Western Red Cedar Board & Batten is a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins. There are 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.
Please visit the Siding Grades page for more photos of various siding grades.
Rough sawn, unseasoned 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″.
