|As a building covering, clay acts as air barrier, finishing and window frame material.|
Clay offers unique advantages as a multiple-application building material : floor tiles, thermal mass, frescoes, etc.
Wood covering (clapboards)
|We produce cedar, fir, spruce, hemlock and tamarack clapboards. The wood we use is air-seasoned or kiln-dried according to the species and the quality required. We discriminate in favour of air-seasoning as a greener method.|
The exposed surface has the finish of a band-saw cut thus ensuring maximum protection of its natural state or prolongs the stain life cycle.
Installed wood covering
|We only produce six-inch wide clapboards covering between 3 and 4 3/4 inches, according to the desired look.|
|The exterior covering is made of clapboards produced in our shop with air-seasoned fir.|
|Riding stable with concrete-floor slab, three stalls and a hay gallery. As a lean-to addition, a sunshade for the horses.|
Doors and tables
|We produce laminated solid wood doors and tables. Maple is used for tables and kitchen counters. There is no limit to the species that can be used for doors and tables of different applications.|
|Our veranda railings are made with well-dried wood (approximately 10% R.H.) of various species : fir, cedar, hemlock or tamarack. These residential railings meet the insurance standards.|
The slightly rough finish of the wood maintains the stain over a longer cycle. Note that planed lumber is not recommended for exterior use.
Veranda railing detail
|The shape of the handrail and the base optimizes the water flow. Made with high-quality wood for greater longevity and increased solidity.|
