What Contractors Need to Know About Nostalgia Board & Batten Metal Wall Panel

McElroy Metal recently announced the release of the Nostalgia Board & Batten panel, a durable and low-maintenance alternative to wood siding. Made of 24-gauge Galvalume®, this panel mimics the classic wooden board and batten look without the hassle of continuous upkeep.

Why Was the Nostalgia Board and Batten Metal Wall Panel Designed/Engineered?

NostalgiaOriginating in Sweden and Norway, the traditional board and batten, also known as barn siding, was intended to be practical. Thin strips of wood were used to cover the gaps in the wide wood planks to better protect those gaps against the elements. 

Nostalgia Board & Batten is a throwback to the original design but offers resistance to fire, rot, and insects, ensuring longevity and peace of mind.

Your customers get the best of both worlds - all the benefits of metal wall panels with the time-honored beauty of traditional board & batten.

From residential to light commercial, building owners and designers appreciate the unique aesthetic appearance, carefree maintenance, and opposition to the elements over its wooden predecessors.

In short, we created this product because your customers need and want it!
