06 Dec Farmhouse Siding – The Best Farmhouse Siding for Your Home
Farmhouse style has gained large popularity over the last several years and for good reason! Farmhouse siding styles blend the modern convenience of new siding with the perfect rustic look of a farmhouse. This siding uses wood, clean lines, and rustic accents to complete a homestead feel for the exterior of your home. Many homeowners choose this style of siding to elevate the look of their home and use it to protect their houses from the elements. The most popular farmhouse siding options are shiplap and board and batten, both coming in a wide variety of materials.
You can choose from wood, vinyl siding, metal, or concrete materials to create your perfect modern farmhouse design.
Farmhouse Siding Material
There are so many materials to choose from when looking at installing farmhouse siding on your home, it can be an intimidating task to figure out which will be best for your family. After comparing the pros and cons of different materials, we have found the perfect siding for a modern farmhouse that is zero-maintenance, can withstand the harshest of elements, and will leave your home looking brand new for generations.
Worry-Free EverLog Siding is a patented, revolutionary engineered concrete simulated log siding. Made of lightweight reinforced concrete (sometimes referred to as fiber cement siding), EverLog Siding eliminates the costly maintenance, and susceptibility to fire, mold, insects, and other problems commonly associated with wood logs or other siding materials.
Glass fiber cement siding is sometimes referred to as “fake, faux, or simulated log siding”. However, when you see our EverLog Siding you won’t use terms or phrases like “fake log siding” or “faux log siding” but more likely “beautiful”, “realistic”, “that is not wood?” or just “looks better than logs.”
Using Everlog concrete log siding for your modern farmhouse exterior is the perfect solution to all your problems, leaving you with a beautiful home and stress-free living.
Popular Farmhouse Siding – Board and Batten
Board and batten is the most popular farmhouse siding look and for good reason. It gives your home a perfect rustic charm while keeping it clean and timeless.
Board and Batten Siding is a siding style that combines alternating wide “Boards” and more narrow “Battens” that are installed vertically. At EverLog Systems, we produce a much wider Batten for a more robust and rustic timber look and feel.
Board and Batten Siding is a nice visual transition from horizontal siding and is most often used as a vertical accent in either a gable or dormer. However, our concrete Board and Batten Siding is extremely versatile and very popular when applied to the entire structure. Our clients also enjoy the benefits of a worry-free, Class A Fire Rated concrete product that (like all our EverLog products) is designed and built to last for generations.
