NORTE, by reSAWN TIMBER co., features Cypress with a weathered aesthetic. With its legendary beauty and natural durability, Cypress has long been a staple as an exterior wood siding product. Because Cypress generates its own preservative oil, called cypressene, it’s an ideal wood for locations with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains.
NORTE can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is available in #2 common or select grade. Select grade Cypress contains few character marks.
Combining Cypress’ impressive exterior reputation and reSAWN’s design process, NORTE is durable, dimensionally stable, resistant to rot and insects, and has a grey, weathered look. NORTE can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Applications – please call to inquire.
reSAWN’s WEATHERED designs offer a consistent aesthetic from the moment of installation. As a natural building material, wood cladding weathers inconsistently and can be unpredictable. NORTE provides an exterior material with minimal aesthetic variation.
EXPECT BEAUTIFUL WEATHERED WOOD
Our finishing process makes for beautifully designed exterior and interior wood cladding. Like any exterior wood siding prefinished or finished in place, these materials will weather naturally over time and will require normal cleaning and maintenance. For interior applications, expect little to no change.
reSAWN offers a multitude of high-performing exterior species that include Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Accoya, Abodo, and Kebony. In addition to weathered finishes and unfinished wood species, reSAWN’s exterior offering includes their award-winning charred designs, which are inspired by the Japanese tradition “shou sugi ban.”
reSAWN is dedicated to providing high-performance, long-lasting cladding material, and has developed its product line based on observations of experienced industry leaders and a first-hand understanding of customer needs.
