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.
