More European White Oak To Love
reSAWN TIMBER co. is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our European white oak product offering. This luxurious sought-after species is known for its wider widths, a variety of deep brown tones tinged with light sapwood, and a distinctive grain pattern. reSAWN’s new finishes complement the character and tones of European oak by enhancing the natural appearance of the wood.
reSAWN’s European oak is offered in both select grade and character grade. Character grade material is ‘original cut’ which is the most efficient and effective approach of cutting since it utilizes the whole log. Logs are sliced directly through from the front to the back. The magnificence of original cut is that all of the various, one-of-a-kind cuts of hardwood are displayed – rift sawn, quarter sawn and plain sawn – as well as sapwood & heartwood where the ring patterns are tightest.
Select products can be specified in both Herringbone and Chevron styles. All designs are available as FSC® certified upon request.
If you are traveling to New Zealand, be sure to put Wanaka on your must-visit list. Wanaka is a resort town set on the southern end of its eponymous lake on New Zealand’s South Island. It boasts gorgeous views of snowcapped mountains and is the gateway to the Southern Alps’ Mount Aspiring National Park — a truly inspiring wilderness of glaciers, beech forests, and alpine lakes. Abodo chose to build a showcase cabin in this harsh alpine environment to demonstrate the durability and weatherability of their Vulcan Screening finished with reSAWN’s SiOO:X on the facade and roof.
SiOO:X forms a silicon-based shell on exterior timber, which weathers to a beautiful silver grey. Apart from the surface being beautiful, the SiOO:X treatment reinforces and strengthens the wood surface.
Utilizing Wood Cladding for Modern, Sustainable Roofing Applications
The United States has seen an uptick in interest for timber roof cladding and timber clad structures within recent years – especially in progressive areas like the Hudson Valley region of New York state, Los Angeles, California, and the Hamptons on the southeastern end of Long Island. The design typically utilizes the same timber cladding species and finishes on the exterior walls and the roof which creates a bespoke, avant-garde, and seamless timber-clad structure. Exterior cladding can be installed in many different configurations & patterns, though timber-clad roofs are typically installed vertically. This style is ideal in modern architectural designs where the slope of the roof is highly considered and regarded as a key focal point.
