YAKISUGI WITH FIRE RETARDANT COATING
Charred wood is a living product – depending on the chosen finish, the colour will fade differently over time. The fiber ages beautifully and like a masterpiece, it develops a singular patina. You can let the wood grain naturally acquire its “ecological” patina.

GOOD TO KNOW
Durability – The phenols and thujaplicin naturally present in White Cedar repel insects, act as a fungicide, prevent rot and even water infiltration. These properties increase its durability.
Stability – Unlike other softwoods, White Cedar is very stable, which means that it is less likely than other species to twist, crack or warp. The final product’s shape will therefore remain intact for decades.
Warranty & Installation Guide
We work exclusively with Eastern White Cedar, which in itself is a guarantee that you’ll be worry-free for 25 years or more against wood rot. The products we offer are maintenance-free, but you can choose to treat your wood cladding with oils to keep its original colour. In fact, some of our clients find that the wood’s natural ageing process is in line with their environmental values. Others who prefer their cladding to remain as close as possible to its original colour can, after a soft water brushing (no sanding), apply another coat of natural oil with UV protection, on an as-needed basis (we recommend every 5 years). Take a look at our installation guides to know how to make the best use of our cladding.
