INTRODUCING :: ABODO WOOD IN THE USA

lifetime beauty with tomorrow in mind

reSAWN TIMBER co. is proud to be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of ABODO® thermally modified Vulcan cladding and decking products in the USA.

Based in New Zealand, ABODO prides itself on producing a range of beautiful and durable timber solutions that are safe, sustainable, and renewable.

FEATURED PROJECT

Flying-Into-Whitianga-Vulcan-Cladding-Abodo-Wood

This modern take on kiwi bach living features Abodo’s Vulcan timber cladding and screening.

Designed by Redbox Architects as a series of sleeping cabins with glass linkways, the bach is built around a central entertaining space and outdoor deck opening toward the wetland and gardens.

Vulcan Cladding in Sioo:x finish provides a natural, fresh contrast to the Vulcan Screening in Teak finish for the entry and garage (including a hidden timber garage door).

Benefits of Specifying Pre-Weathered Exterior Wood Cladding

Wood is a natural, sustainable material. As such, when it’s continually exposed to environmental elements such as moisture, sunlight, and wind the physical attributes of the material changes and aesthetically evolves over time.

WHAT IS WEATHERING?
Weathering is defined as the chemical and physical changes that take place when timber is exposed to weather. Weathering factors that are responsible for the changes are: moisture (rain, snow, dew, and humidity), oxygen, solar radiation (ultra-violet (UV), visible, and infrared light), and temperature.
