Houses With Board And Batten Siding Innovative Decor
Houses With Board And Batten Siding – Plywood has earned a deserved place in the pantheon of the most versatile and indispensable building materials in architecture. It is resistant, lightweight, economical, easy to work and install. It is also known for being the standard material par excellence in the coating of structures and subsoils, which until not long ago was always hidden once the construction was completed.
The strength of the piece is determined by the placement of these layers: those that are placed with the fibers at 90 degrees of rotation with respect to the previous layer, form cheaper houses with board and batten siding, while the layers that are placed with a rotation of 30 degrees produce higher quality plywood. The cleaner the board looks and the fewer knots the wood has, the more expensive it becomes. The thickness of each board depends on the number of layers that form it. The most common range between 6 and 25 mm.
The thickness, the type of wood and glue as well as the quality of the outer layers determine the category of the conglomerate, and consequently it’s cost depending on the quality of each of these elements. Compared to other wall finishes, such as houses with board and batten siding, the slightly higher cost of plywood as a coating is compensated by its inexpensive installation and finishes, as it does not require covering the pores, sanding or painting.
