What is Charred Wood?

Charred wood, which is often referred to as “shou-sugi-ban” or “burnt wood,” is an ancient Japanese technique that preserves wood by carefully exposing it to a heat treatment. Although its first use is unknown, burned wood could be found in the construction of homes as exterior siding, flooring and fences as early as the 1700s.

The complete process of charring wood requires many steps of burning, cooling and cleaning the wood. Once the wood had reached the desired level of char, it could then be brushed, left untouched or sealed with a clear coat of stain. Varying the levels of char on the wood not only allowed for a more unique look, it also helped preserve the wood, protecting it from UV and weathering when used as an outdoor siding product.
