Yakisugi / Shou Sugi Ban
Wood charring technique differentiates from all other techniques by its longevity, therefore, it is perfect to use for house exterior elements. This technique has been widely used and proven in Japan for centuries, where the climate conditions range from semi-tropical to northern.
You have probably noticed the huge trend of naturalness in interior and exterior design. Wood charring is an absolutely natural way of treating wood, also ensuring a pleasant aesthetic vision of the project. During the wood charring process, all the natural colours and patterns of the wood are intensified and made richer. Also, the burnt wood becomes highly resistant to environmental factors (fire, water, insects, decay). All in all, Shou Sugi Ban is not only visually appealing, but also very practical.
In order to ensure the natural preservation properties of the charred wood and preserve the initial result for as long as possible, it is essential to periodically treat the wooden facade with specific oils. This way the long life (up to 100 years) of your charred wood cladding will be ensured.
