Exterior and Interior Shou Sugi Ban Siding
Suyaki is the most traditional and dramatic of our yakisugi “shou sugi ban” surfaces. Exterior and interior Suyaki products look similar but have very different tactile characteristics.
Exterior grade Suyaki has a leathery texture, and blemishes, weathers, and develops character over time. Suyaki is a vernacular material and the fine patina epitomizes the traditional wabi-sabi aesthetic. Due to the thick, hydrophobic, UV-inhibiting soot layer, exterior Suyaki has fantastic color and wood longevity, as well as incredible fire resistance.
Interior Suyaki has a coating that hardens the surface and is easy to clean.
