Traditionally Inspired, American Made™—an 18th century technique for preserving wood with fire is updated to meet 21st century design and performance standards. Aggressively burning the surface layer of our sustainably harvested Larch planks creates the signature “alligator skin” texture and a black, mildly iridescent look Shou Sugi Ban is known for.
Shou Sugi Ban Larch Deep Char is well suited for exterior applications or in some cases interior paneling. Traditionally maintenance-free, the charred layer is expected to change over time when exposed to the elements. We finish our Deep Char with an ebony tinted poly sealer to protect and prolong its distinctive look. With or without maintenance, Larch Deep Char provides unprecedented longevity to be enjoyed for decades to come. Providing a durable, rot-resistant option with a ton of character, capable of withstanding unforgiving weather conditions, Shou Sugi Ban Larch Deep Char adds a modern appeal to a centuries-old process.
