Shou Sugi Ban is a Japanese word that means “charred cedar board” – although it can be used on more wood species than just cedar. Using the technique does not reduce structural integrity and in fact, has almost the opposite effect. It is first charred and then oils are applied. It is water and mold resistant, protects against insects and pet marks. Shou Sugi Ban technique is used because it requires low maintenance and is very resistant to insects and damage from moisture. In the case of an outdoor pavilion, it provides long-lasting protection from weather and insects.

The Shou Sugi Ban technique immediately makes an impression upon first glance, but beyond that is a gorgeous timber framed pavilion with strong timbers and impressive sizing.

This patio cover is featured on the back patio of a modern-farmhouse style home. The rustic, blackened look coincides well with the start black and white of the modern farmhouse look.

Read the testimonial below from the home owner: “The craftsmanship that Arrow Timbers portrays is nothing short of true Art. Impeccable skill, brains and knowledge are used at great lengths to master their one of a kind projects. Built to last for decades.”

“We had the opportunity to use them on a project and look forward to more in the future! These guys are TRUE Artisans. Hard to find.”

Thank you.
