Larch Cladding features on Grand Designs
It is a while since we last appeared on Grand Designs so we are really pleased that Siberian Larch cladding painted in satin black Teknos 3 coat system supplied by Bennetts Timber to a new home in Billericay, Essex featured in episode 4 of Season 17.

Siberian larch is a dense softwood imported from Russia that is ideal for exterior cladding. It is dense, durable and looks great. The larch is imported in rough sawn packs, it is then machined and planed in our on-site mill to the profile chosen. In this case the larch was then painted black using the Teknos 3 coat system. This involves applying three coats of paint to the manufacturers specification using our vacuum coater which applies the paint evenly and consistently. The painted larch is then allowed to dry naturally before being packed and ttransported to site, in this case the Teknos finishes as satin black.
The finished product looks fantastic.
