Wood Siding & Boards
Board & Batten
Rigidply Rafters can provide board & batten siding for your building project. Siding typically consists of 1x12 or 1x10 boards with 1x3 battens. The siding is Standard Grade, kiln-dried (KD), Eastern White Pine – surfaced one side and both edges (S1S2E) with the one rough side as the exposed face of the siding.
Eastern White Pine siding is a fine grain wood species that holds its shape and retains finishes extremely well. This product has been used for construction and fine woodworking for centuries. The siding as provided by Rigidply Rafters is Standard Grade with visible, but tight knots, and is shipped unfinished. The boards, battens and trims must be painted or stained to protect the appearance and maintain durability. Several other grades and surface textures are readily available – check with us to discuss your buildings expectations.
