Our wood is used for interior and exterior applications
The life expectancy of Yakisugi is estimated at more than 80-90 years when properly maintained. You can still see some old Japanese houses with over 120 years old Yakisugi structures.
When the wood is being charred, the pores within the wood start to shrink and close. What this means, is that it becomes much more difficult for the board to soak up and take on water.
The carbon layer that charms the wood is resistant to weathering and fading. It is resistant to all climates, and seasonal changes in extreme weather including humidity and dryness.
Burning the wood is another choice for preserving the wood from decay since carbon does not rot.
By slightly charring the surface of the wood, the soft layer is burnt off/ When the wood is burned, the porous material within the inner layer starts to close its pores and becomes much more stable and durable.
Termites and other wood-consuming insects hate the layer of carbon produced by charring. Yakisugi resists bugs without pesticides or other potentially harmful chemicals.
