Western Red Cedar Board and Batten
Board and batten shutters offer a unique look that gives a country feel. This shutter is also popular on ranch style architecture. The board and batten shutter is constructed from 1-1/8" cedar boards which are spaced equally with a small gap between the boards to allow for expansion. This heavy duty construction is sure to add quality and value to any home.
Hand selected Cedar, a naturally decay resistant wood, is the preferred choice for this application. Straight and light in weight, nothing matches the performance of Cedar. Semi-transparent and solid color stains are an excellent finish option. When painted, a good quality, fast drying, oil based primer should be used. Left unfinished cedar will silver and remain maintenance free for years.
