Shou Sugi Ban Technique
Shou Sugi Ban (焼杉板) aka Yakisugi is a centuries-old technique, which was originally founded by Japanese carpenters in the XVIIl century. In 1700 Japanese carpenters were charring "Japanese cedar" - known as "Sugi"- used for construction. Various houses' charred wood cladding and fences are built in Western Japan, where this technique was viral, due to its remarkable durability.
Versatile Charred wood
Durable and beautiful. Our charred wood cladding is made using a Yakisugi. This old Japanese technique allows us to produce the most stunning and superior timber that not only stands out from the crowd, but allows it to withstand the elements for more than double the amount of time compared to traditional timber cladding.
Perfect in every way. Charred wood not only looks great, but also comes with the benefits that you usually don't get with regular timber, so it's perfect for bathrooms and kitchens since the charring process makes timber surface water resistant, and extremely impervious to decay in high humidity environments.
First impressions matter! Nothing screams premium more than a fence that's made from charred wood. Not only you are going to stand out from boring old design, but also makes it exceptionally easy for yourself to maintain it. Yakisugi charring process changes the chemical composition of the wood eliminating the mould and fungi growth.
Decking is an extension of your home, a place of tranquillity and refuge. Nothing is more serene than sitting on your deck in a cosy chair on a lovely summer day while having a cup of coffee. High-quality decking will allow you to enjoy moments like this for a long long time. Durability and the minimum maintenance of our charred timber decking boards will allow that and more.
