Step 2

Choice of cladding

There are two choices for the exterior material of your Woodcab, both in ventilated openwork cladding with alternating 7 cm battens (2.4 cm thick) and 1 cm gaps:

1. Untreated natural pine cladding
This cladding is designed to last 20 years.
Without treatment, its colour will change from natural to grey under the effect of UV rays, but its technical and structural qualities will not be affected. A treatment consists of sanding and oiling the visible side (especially the sides exposed to the sun).

2. Burnt larch wood cladding
According to the old Japanese technique “Shou sugi Ban” (burnt + brushed + oiled). This treatment provides protection against insects, rot and sunlight. The dark colour remains stable over time and the durability of the cladding can exceed 20 years.
