Carpentier uses European and Canadian barnwood to create its rustic cladding.
Barnwood cladding is produced from reclaimed pine. More than 200 years old, this wood is sourced from disused wooden barns as they are carefully dismantled. By obtaining wood from sources such as this, we are reusing and recycling as many building materials as possible and putting them to use in a completely new project with no loss of quality.
Carpentier repurposes reclaimed wood as beautiful cladding, among other products, thus making it a perfect example of our cradle-to-cradle production principle.
Carpentier supplies barnwood sourced from old barns in Europe and Canada. The hardness and sustainability of these reclaimed wood varieties make them ideal for outdoor use, and their beauty adds a warm ambiance to homes and wooden outbuildings.
Our solid barnwood timber cladding is available in thicknesses of 20mm to 24mm and variable lengths. European barnwood appears in a range of grey, black and brown colourings, although Carpentier focuses mainly on grey tints when sourcing this wood. Canadian barnwood tends to have a more even colour, with some boards occasionally showing more colour than others.
