Timber Cladding: Untreated Siberian Larch

Untreated Siberian Larch was supplied for this project, NORclad Grade B was supplied, offering a fair spread of knots, along with the distinctive grain of the species.

After approximately 3 years the timber has weathered down to a silver grey, and now has the softer appearance to blend in to its surroundings and contrast the other materials on the building.
