The windy seaside town of Gullane on the Firth of Forth’s southern shore is home to Dalshian. The property has, in turn, become one of the first examples of Russwood’s collaboration with SiOO:X as an early adopter and premium specification partner of its patented uniform weathering system.
The area is rich with timber-clad homes, and this particular home is clad in Scotlarch®. The client told us that, “I was worried about the weathering over the years as some buildings we saw locally which had been clad in timber looked not great after a few years with discoloration – almost black in some cases. I was pleased to discover the SiOO:X treatment for timber and I was pleased to put it on the front of the house, treating the timber myself with the three coats prior to installation.”
Now that the weathering has taken place, he told us that, “The result is very pleasing and we have had lots of complimentary comments about the cladding and we ourselves are delighted.”
Julian Frostwick is also pleased with the result, adding that, “From my point of view I particularly like the subtlety of the chamfered profile while not obvious from a distance is a wee pleasure when up close.”
