Thermowood does not “walk” like tropical wood. It does not bend, crack or resin like larch, and does not rot like pine or spruce. Therefore, the best choice for a humid, rather harsh and volatile UK climate is facade cladding and siding from thermowood. Wood is cut from PEFC certified forest and certified by KOMO.
Thermowood facade cladding and siding are much more stable to external influences than facade finish made of “Exotic” tropical wood. Their surface over time does not become a rough, just like surface of a tropical wood finish also. However, they are significantly cheaper than the tropical timber cladding and siding offered on the UK market. And has the great advantage of being the high quality facade finish with minimal maintenance. For aesthetic reasons, simple maintenance with paint or oil every 10 to 15 years is recommended. Thermowood cladding and siding can also be operated without any surface treatment. In this way, the rain, wind and the ultraviolet rays of the sun will give the facade finish an elegant shade of gray. An investment in thermo-treated wood is a long-term, high-quality, aesthetic investment in the well-being of your home and the surrounding environment.
Due to it’s extremely durable properties, thermowood also has its own color, which is very similar to the exotic wood. Depending on the heat treatment method used, the color of the wood may vary from light brown to dark tones.
