Timber Species:
Charred

For a bold, eye-catching and design-led statement for your next home improvement or commercial project, look no further than charred cladding. Our range of charred cladding is created by employing the ancient Japanese practice of Yakisugi (焼杉) — burning the surface of the wood, without the entire piece being consumed. The charring process doesn’t just provide a striking, unique appearance, but also confers a number of practical benefits to the wood. The carbonisation process waterproofs the cladding, protecting against insect attack, rot and acting as a fire retardant. This dramatic style of timber cladding has gained a growing appreciation amongst architects and designers. After charring, the product is then wire brushed, which raises the grain and brings through the natural burned features and texture. Choose from lightly to heavily-charred cladding within our range, with profiles including square edge and half lap.

It also protects against insects, as well as making it fire retardant and an exciting trending design
