Opened in October 2017, Kebony was used for more than 100,000 square feet of decking at the Wharf, as well as cladding on certain store fronts and rooftop decks. reSAWN TIMBER co. visited the Wharf 6 months after installation to see how the decking weathered.
Located in the coastal town of Bellport, the residence has a heavily wooded landscape and cul-de-sac neighborhood. The ocean is never too far away, though, with a stiff, salty sea breeze. It’s the same breeze that requires the installation of a high-quality exterior wood siding. Studio DB specified reSAWN’s MATSU charred shou sugi ban Accoya® for its superior exterior durability. A modified pine, Accoya® is a high performance wood that’s ideal for exterior applications because of its increased product lifespan, dimensional stability, lower maintenance frequency, and improved carbon sequestration. Additionally, Accoya® is FSC® certified and naturally renewable.
