CHARRED WOOD SIDING
Surface & Texture
Newport Gray is once brushed after proprietary charring methods. The texture is silky smooth to the touch and appears to have layers of waves varying in color from a June Gloom sky to dark storm clouds rolling in from the coast. The soot layer is approximately 1/32 inch (0.8 mm) thick. It is suitable for exterior or interior use. Newport Gray does not need to be oil finished for exterior applications but an oil pre-finish will bond in soot and slow down color weathering.
STK – “Select Tight Knot” grade allows for well spaced intergrown knot. Unlimited combination of heartwood and sapwood, pith allowed. Checks allowed to 1/16” as long as plank stability, weather-resistance, and cosmetics are not adversely affected.
CMG – “Clear Mix Grain” no knots with minor blemishes (ie. birdseye).
Clear Grades are predominately sapwood.
Dried then burnt to 15% MC, but may fluctuate during transport or warehousing. Please acclimate on site for two weeks prior to installation.
