What is Board and Batten or LP Smartside, and what's the difference in price and quality?
Board and Batten is a style of siding made up of wood boards and strips, or battens, that cover the joint where the boards meet. We use white pine for our board and batten siding.
LP Smartside, on the other hand, is a man-made wood product similar to T1-11 but is harder, longer lasting and has a more weather resistant exterior finish in addition to being anti-fungal and anti-rot. It is compressed layers of wood textured on the outside to look like boards and wood grain.
