Exterior and Interior Shou Sugi Ban Siding

Charred Sugi Brushed Once

Gendai is the most commonly specified shou sugi ban “yakisugi” surface for exterior applications. A light brushing process knocks down the heavy soot layer and leaves a smooth, silky appearance. The burnt fiber crevasse shadows are subtle, and Gendai can either be installed with or without an oil prefinish.
