Pioneer Millworks, a leader in the reclaimed and sustainable wood industry, announced an expansion of their popular Shou Sugi Ban product lineup with over 50 new offerings for both exterior siding and interior cladding applications. From sustainably harvested Larch, Cedar, Douglas fir and reclaimed Oak, to thermally modified Accoya wood with its 50-year warranty, the new product offerings will provide even more options for those looking to enhance their design with the allure of charred wood and weatherproof materials.

Deeply rooted in Japanese tradition, Shou Sugi Ban is well known in the design and DIY communities. For centuries craftsman and woodworkers have been taught that “Yakisugi” or burnt wood siding was only possible using Cypress or Cedar. Pioneer Millworks sought to move beyond the stereotypical norms and invest in more sustainable and longer lasting options with their Traditionally Inspired, American Made™ approach to the Shou Sugi Ban product offerings.

“After 30 years working with wood and travels across ocean in search of the perfect “burn,” I realized that anyone with the species options we have here in North America would be making a blind mistake not to use them. I love tradition, and I love having the best wood options available to us right here.” – Pioneer Millworks founder Jonathan Orpin.

The new offerings in the Shou Sugi Ban product line will feature deeply charred textures and “alligator like” scaling, with a deep black, iridescent color palette that will cool and weather over time when exposed to the elements. Brushed finish options in styles like Carbon and Toasted, that remove the outer layer of char to reveal and expose the natural grains and fissures of the wood. Cool, natural tones in Undressed, Smoke and White, and customizable color options like Ember and Cobalt to make statement on any project or in any room. https://pioneermillworks.com/shou-sugi-ban

Creating responsibly sourced and sustainable product options for the client is part of the Pioneer Millworks DNA. This expansion of their Shou Sugi Ban product offerings will create even more ways to work with designers, builders, and those looking to remodel, for both exterior siding or interior design applications.
