Why Siberian Larch

Decking & SIding
For centuries, mankind has witnessed the unique performance of structures built out of Siberian Larch. Their experiences led them to refer to Siberian Larch as “The Tree of Eternity”. Some homes and churches in Russia have been estimated to be in existence for over 800 years. Perhaps the most famous example of its longevity is its use in the construction of the ancient city of Venice. Due to proximity, Europeans have been able to take advantage of this material. Architects in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, and Japan are specifying the use of larch in the construction of residential homes and commercial spaces such as schools, museums, stadiums, and bridges.

Benefits are an impressive dimensional stability, low cost of installation, low maintenance, high manufacturing standards, and an aesthetically beautiful timber. However, the most amazing feature of Siberian Larch is its natural resistance to decay. The following properties are responsible for its durability. - READ MORE >

Why It Would Be A Wonderful Feature In Any Home!
Siberian Larch’s impressive density can be attributed to the place in which it grows. Siberian Larch grows in an environment that is known for its long, harsh winters and therefore the growing seasons are short. As a result of the short growing seasons, it is composed on average of 40% latewood which is considered to be significant. Latewood is denser and mechanically stronger than the opposing earlywood. Therefore, these higher levels of latewood create a floor with impressive wear resistant characteristics.

Over time, earlywood wears out leaving the harder latewood as the actual walking surface. Look at any antique floor and this is what you will find. Having a floor with high concentrations of latewood will provide a homeowner with a smoother, more even surface in the future.

For the customer, denser material with large latewood contents provides them with a more stable and wear resistant floor. READ MORE >
