Shou Sugi Ban Color Char

Shou Sugi Ban Color Char

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese technique of burning wood as a preservative treatment for exterior siding. The process gives our Larch a dark, slightly iridescent look that in exterior uses can change over time, depending on its exposure to the elements. The evolving look suggests the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi – a reminder of the transience and imperfection of all things.

Color & Character: Our Color Char is a custom product available in numerous hues. The specific finish can be tailored to either an exterior or interior application. For additional details and expert advice, please give us a call.
