Specialists in the manufacture of Shou Sugi Ban® charred timber.

For over a decade, our Buckinghamshire-based team has perfected the charred timber process. Having mastered yakisugi, we created our range, Shou Sugi Ban®. This name has been adopted by other charred timber suppliers, but Exterior Solutions Ltd holds the registered trademark.

Respecting the traditional techniques, our team have experimented with different timbers and effects.

  • Traditionalists love the intense black, cracked finishes in Accoya, Kebony, Yukari and Larch
  • Our brushed ranges deliver a smooth finish with subtle grain patterns for a timeless finish
  • Heavy brushing creates contrast and exaggerates the natural grain and texture of the timber
  • For a contemporary twist, take a look at our coloured Larch, Accoya and Douglas Fir range

Our charred timbers are suitable for internal and external cladding.
