Siberian Larch Cladding – SLI Profile
Siberian Larch is valued for its tough, waterproof and durable qualities. Top quality timber is in great demand for building yachts and other small boats, for exterior cladding of buildings, and interior paneling. The timber is resistant to rot when in contact with the ground, and is suitable for use as posts and in fencing.
Siberian larch is often a very popular timber cladding choice for its appearance. It is regarded as having a very desired finish and provides beautiful colouring and texture. The shapes and patterns of the growth rings are very aesthetically pleasing and provide real character to each cladding panel. Siberian larch will often start life as pale yellow/golden brown in colour but weathers to striking silvery grey colours, although treatment and staining can change this.
Due to this durability, it is a wood that isn’t as vulnerable to knocks, scrapes and scratches as other woods. This is an important aspect for Siberian larch exterior cladding. Siberian larch can be sawn and machined well, making it a practical and efficient choice of timber for building projects.
