Kebony Products That We Supply
What is cladding?
Cladding is an exterior siding that is installed indirectly on the exterior of a building usually with furring strips or a passive rainscreen system to allow ventilation between the weather barrier and exposed boards.
What makes Kebony so easy to work with?
Kebony is softer than comparable looking hardwoods (yet harder than traditional pressure treated lumber!), which makes it might easier to work with than alternatives. There is no need to pre-drill the wood.
Is it sustainable?
Yes! Kebony is FSC certified, meaning that the wood used in the product and the manufacturer that made it met the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council and ensures that the product came from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
Is it a type of treated lumber?
Yes , Kebony goes through its own special treatment process that makes the wood resistant against rot, decay, and insects while also giving it the exotic look you are looking for. Additionally, the treatment, which uses an environmentally safe solution, increases the density of the wood to provide a much stronger version of the pine lumber.
Is Kebony as expensive compared to other exotic lumbers?
Kebony is comparably priced with exotic woods. Unlike most exotic woods, it comes with a 30 year warranty against rotting and decay.
