Belly Band

Decorative Cladding

Belly band is the nontechnical term for decorative cladding that runs horizontally around a house or building. It usually wraps around the building at the height of the first or second floor. Belly bands are also often found in gables, separating standard lap or panel siding from shake.

Visual Separation

It is commonly used as a visual separation between two surface materials. Belly band trims really shine when two different materials of different thicknesses are placed next to each other. When the band is thicker than the siding they are attached to, it unifies the disparity of the two boards.
