Larch is one of the best cladding timbers – used by people all over the world for exterior and interior.
Due to the harsh Siberian environment (harsh meaning extreme cold temperatures) that the tree is grown in, it is the most durable timbers that we supply and is ideally suited for outdoor use. The wood is stable, so there is minimal movement, and is naturally impervious to infestation and most diseases.
Larch usually starts its life as a pale yellow/golden brown colour and tends to gradually weather to a silvery grey colour if left untreated. It’s a specie well known for its texture with the shapes and patterns of the growth rings providing real character to each panel.
Larch is typically a low maintenance wood. The resin in the timber means it has an element of natural protection against rot and decay, and the fact it is so dense also means it requires less maintenance.
