DESCRIPTION

Gendai® yakisugi “shou sugi ban” siding. The top layer of delicate soot is lightly brushed off, leaving a smooth, consistent, dark surface. An oil prefinish is applied prior to shipment. Suitable for exterior applications. Available burned both faces (S4S) for fencing or louver applications.

Silver weathering stain is designed to mimic the look of aged, silver wood. The finish will wash away within the first couple of years, leaving you with a beautiful and consistent gray-silver color. The color will continue to change and patina over time. Delivered ready to install.

FINISH DETAILS

Weathering Stain Silver

The silver weathering stain should be used in exterior applications only and is based on the Cape Cod gray aesthetic. It is designed to be maintenance-free as it develops a bleached coastal patina over time. The stain has two components. One is a silver pigment without binder that will wash off within the first year. The second is mineral ferrous sulfate that reacts with tannic acid in the wood to develop a natural silver color.

CONSIDERATIONS

  • Unique patina product.
  • Designed to patina from pigmented silver to faded silver over time.
  • Factory silver stain can be blotchy. Over time, weathering generally evens out the overall tone.

MAINTENANCE

Get ready for long-lasting beauty with no hassle; this finish does not require maintenance. The best weathering results will start to show within six months of installation.

We include touchup oil to match face color on end cuts, notches, and rips. This siding product should never be scraped, sanded or pressure washed. A very weak TSP or soap solution, neutral pH cleaner, or simply clean water, can be applied with a cloth or soft brush to wash off pollen, dirt, dust, etc.

Exterior siding should be hosed down regularly to keep it clean and appearance fresh. Use a hammer to tighten up loose fasteners over time as required. Add face fasteners if needed to maintain a flat wall plane. For more detailed installation and maintenance guidance, see our Installation Guidelines.
