The History of Board & Batten Siding

Coming up with new and innovative finishes in the roofing and siding industry is what sets one manufacturer apart from another. In this case we are going back to basics to bring our customers a timeless finish in steel.

Dating as far back as the 1800’s, the “Green” solution to log homes that used an excessive amount of lumber, was Board & Batten siding. This option became incredibly popular by 1845 for its lumber savings, being more manageable to handle, and a much more weather tight exterior to keep out the driving rain and frosty winters. Where the freshly sawn planks fit together there was a tiny crack between the boards. To make the system more airtight, a small strip of wood no more than a couple inches wide would be nailed over the crack and was nicknamed “batten”. And so, the name “Board and Batten” was born.

Metex Architectural brings to you Board & Batten metal panels, bringing style to steel! Available in all of our color options, and cut to your desired lengths, this former rustic finish has been given new life in steel that will last a lifetime with our 40 year paint warranty.
