Whether you’re remodeling, renovating or building new, UFP-Edge Charred Wood shiplap and trim boards will make an understated addition to your interior living space. You’ll welcome its warm, modern look and the conversations it inspires ─all while appreciating its unique charm.

Charred Wood is well-crafted with lumber that has been carefully burnt to highlight its natural beauty and enhance its dignified character. The contrast of its dark-charred top surface and distinct spruce wood grain distinguishes it from any other wood. A light clear coat is applied that doesn’t conceal but reveals its exquisite character.

Our Charred Wood is carefully packaged in kits of shiplap, project boards and trim boards. The design of our 1x6 shiplap material makes it easy to install on virtually any wall surface. Our matching 1x4 and 1x6 boards are perfect complements for shiplap framing or for unique do-it-yourself projects.

AVAILABLE PROFILES

Trim and boards can be used to frame an accent wall or create additional projects that use a square board.

Square edge (butt-joint) shiplap features identical rabbeted edges on each side of the board. The rabbeted edges allow the boards to overlap and butt up together with no gaps. It also allows for spacing between boards at various widths with less overlap.

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 rays and weathering when used as an outdoor siding product.
