      Natural Beauty + Timeless Protection
      What Is Shou Sugi Ban?
      shou sugi ban: [ shoh soo-gee bawn ]
      This ancient Japanese yakisugi technique (referred to as shou sugi ban in North America) uses the intense heat of fire to permanently close the pores of the wood protecting it from moisture and nature’s elements.
      Because of this charring, any food available for insects or fungus gets burned away making it less susceptible to rot or decay.  
      Once processed, this product never needs to be charred, stained, or sealed again making it the most environmentally sustainable siding solution available.
      We are continuing the traditional Japanese shou sugi ban process transforming real wood into a maintenance free work of art. And best of all...
      It looks absolutely ravishing.

      Deep Charring
      Deep charring is the most important step in achieving our signature 'Char Classic' texture and what allows for all of shou sugi ban's timeless protective properties.
      Adequate charring is also crucial for our 'Burn & Brush' line to ensure the hard grains are fully blackened before brushing.

      Brushing
      Brushing is the step that scoops out the soft wood in between the hard grains creating a contrasting 'zebra' pattern. These deep grooves show off the natural wood grains creating a satisfying texture. Each board is brushed at least twice-- once in each direction.

      Staining / Sealing
      After brushing, a stain can be applied to colour the soft grains while the hard grains stay black for that distinguished shou sugi ban look. Stains can be solid, semi-transparent, or transparent depending on desired finish or interior/exterior application. 
      This stain also acts as a sealer to protect it from damage, UV rays, and to prevent your fingers from turning black from char.

      About charclad
      A Brief Story Of How charclad Came To Be...
      After a decade of professionally working with finishes, I was looking to expand my exterior wood restoration business into the Canadian winter months.
      Our process worked well, transforming old sun-faded gray cedar into freshly stained honey-golds, browns, and reds, but I was always curious about better stains and sealers to deliver more value and a better result to clients.
      Then one day, almost by accident, I discovered shou sugi ban-- the ancient Japanese wood charring technique via fire charring that would would make any wood finishing product on the market completely obsolete.
      I fell in love with this natural method of wood preservation and pursued immediately. It combined sustainability, functionality and tradition-- but it was something infinitely more special than that... It was art.
      After countless humbling hours learning the secret techniques of ancient Japan, I am extremely proud to introduce my personal line of handmade shou sugi ban for your home or business.
