Charred wood siding

A wooden side cladding evokes naturalness, comfort and can be extremely durable if treated correctly. Especially a charred wood siding made with the Yakisugi technique, also frequently called Shou Sugi Ban, offers outstanding durability in addition to a unique look. The carbonization of the surface layer created by this technique is a natural repellent for insects and of course water resistant as well. Thus this kind of charred wood siding is noticeably different in comparison to regular side cladding and different materials. World-famous architects have recognized this as well and already use it intensively: for example Japanese contemporary architect and designer Terunobu Fujimori.

Why choose a charred wood siding made with Yakisugi (Shou Sugi Ban)?

In Europe this specific processing of wood is still a small rarity – which makes this charred wood siding especially attractive for all those who like an exclusive and exotic look. The timber used for this side cladding is processed as Yakisugi (Shou Sugi Ban). This means that the surface is slightly charred without actually burning the wood. Due to the high heat of the flame the wood begins to undergo the process of carbonization, which is the distinguishing feature of this technique. Thanks to this carbonization the wood not only gains a unique structure but also becomes water resistant and thus gains a much higher durability.
