We prioritize Canadian cedar: Eastern white cedar and Western red cedar, which are widely recognized and used in construction because of their rot-proof properties and their resistance to weathering.

  • UNIQUE COLOURS
    Charred wood or shou sugi ban comes in all colours. Take a look at our different hues and textures.
  • INSECT-PROOF
    The shou sugi ban wood charring technique protects the product from harmful insects.
  • AN ECOLOGICAL PROCESS
    No chemical products are needed in the process of charring wood. The oils that we use are natural and high quality.
  • HYDROPHOBIC
    The process of charring wood solidifies its surface, while our finishing products seal its pores, conferring impermeability.
  • AN ECOLOGICAL SIDING
    Charred wood is a good example of an ecofriendly product based on its 80-years durability. We take into account the environmental cost of all cheap materials derived from petroleum, such as vinyl, which end up at the dump. Our unique Japanese shou sugi ban (yakisugi) technique is an excellent option for exterior and interior sidings.
