Shou Sugi Ban

Yakisugi, or Shou Sugi Ban as it's referred to in North America, is a traditional Japanese method of preserving and weatherproofing wood siding by charring it on one side. Blackwood & Ash Inc. specializes in manufacturing Shou Sugi Ban - we mill and create a variety of textures and finishes. All of our Shou Sugi Ban siding comes charred on one side and prefinished with two coats of sealer on the face and one coat on the back to help protect the char layer and the structural integrity of the wood by limiting water/moisture penetration.
