We offer weatherboards made from natural wood, which can be used to renovate or redesign your home and to create exceptional designs with natural wood that provides a harmonious natural environment.
Weatherboards are produced from Northern spruce and Siberian larch. You can choose weatherboards with either a planed or a rough surface. Look through our profiles for our available weatherboards by following the links below:

Which is preferable – pine, spruce or larch weatherboards?
Pine weatherboards are softer, have more grains in the wood structure, as well as more resin and more features such as knots and branches; therefore, it is more difficult to coat the surface of pine weatherboards with protective and decorative means (paints).
Spruce weatherboards – these weatherboards do not have grains due to the composition of the spruce wood; therefore, they absorb less moisture into their surface. After mounting the weatherboards onto a façade, the features of the spruce are less likely to become deformed. However, deformations of the product may occur due to internal tensions in the wood. These are reduced by grooves milled on the lower plane of the weatherboards (technological cuts), which prevent curving of the weatherboards.
Larch weatherboards have a thicker and harder composition. They are more resistant to mechanical and atmospheric impacts. Therefore, larch weatherboards are more durable in comparison with spruce and pine wood. The features of larch weatherboards are determined by the origin of the wood in Siberia, where larch grows in harsh natural conditions leading to tough and durable wood.
Weatherboards, types of surfaces
Weatherboards with a planed surface – during the manufacturing process of these weatherboards, the pores of the wood are closed. This means that protection and decoration products applied to the surface will penetrate less into the wood. When weatherboards of this type are used for cladding on a south-facing side, the façades of the buildings will only remain pristine for 5 years. When exposed to intensive UV rays and the outdoor atmosphere, the painted surfaces of the weatherboards will start to turn grey and fade, and will then need to be urgently renovated (repainted).
Weatherboards with a rough surface – the surface of the face (visible) side of these weatherboards is processed using a special band-saw. During this manufacturing process, the pores of the rough-surface weatherboard wood remain open. This allows for the penetration of protection and decoration products more deeply into the rough surface of the wood, and assures longer durability of weatherboards of this type, which is about 30 % longer in comparison with weatherboards with a planed surface.
