Unsorted Larch is a naturally moderately durable timber with attractive visible figuring. As graded unsorted, the timber is selected due to its high quality with the characteristics of few defects or knots making it a visually clean uniform product.
The timber has a high density which makes it a robust product which when combined with its attractive appearance can be used to create a contemporary look when cladding a building.
Larch is a softwood timber which produces a range of colours from light reddish brown right through to golden browns. It is usually left untreated when used as external cladding, and these colours weather out over time to a grey colour.
