Untreated wood façade
Untreated wood façades have their very special charm and give every home a very personal, individual touch. However, there are a few considerations that need to be made so that you can also continue to enjoy the façade in a few years’ time.
When it comes to an untreated wood façade, selecting the right wood type is essential. Normally only woods that can withstand the climatic conditions come into consideration. If you make the right decision here, you can expect maintenance requirements to be very low in the future. Native and Siberian larch, the Douglas fir and red cedar are suitable woods for untreated wood façades. Other woods are also an option, depending on where the house is located or whether you love a very rustic look. The greying of the wood is a very important aspect that must be taken into account for untreated façades. Wood is a natural product and continues to “work”, even after it has been mounted on your house’s façade. Weather conditions such as sunlight and rain cause the wood to lose its original colour after a relatively short time and, depending on the type and environmental influence, take on a very individual grey shade. It should be noted that the wood greys to a varying extent. For example, the greying may take place more slowly at roof overhangs or around windows, as the influence of the climate does not leave such obvious traces here. This then causes the colour of the rest of the façade to appear uneven. This phenomenon can be counteracted using our pre-greyed wood façade. It should be mentioned at this point that the greying has no influence on the durability of the wood. If the right wood type has been selected, you can count on a stable, high-quality product for many years.
