Board & Batten

Board & Batten
Board & batten shutters are some of the oldest shutters in existence. Originally created as window coverings for barns and other farm animal shelters. Soon the farmers realized that the wooden shutters would protect their houses from the elements as well. Our board & batten shutters have 7/8” thick vertical boards that are beveled and spaced 1/16” to allow for normal expansion and contraction. The battens (horizontal boards) are also 7/8” and are attached to the vertical boards using Titebond 3 waterproof glue and two 1 ¼” deck screws per board.
