FACADE DECORATION PLANKS
            UAB “VudVa” is producing rough and plane surface façade planks from Siberian spruce, pine and larch. We were the first ones in Lithuania, who started producing façade planks with rough surface back in 1998 and we got convinced that this production tend to long-live and handle the most severe climate conditions. Rough surface planks are widely used in Scandinavia, recognized by Western and Baltic coast Lithuania and now this façade tool is getting more and more recognition in other parts of Lithuania too.

            At first, timber for planks goes through a cycle of drying in the hothouses. Then it goes through the splitting process, where the planks get their first roughness. Then the planks, using machines, are given the shape and profile demanded specifically by an individual customer. When the wood is split, its pores open and after the wood is painted, they are filled with paint and that is the secret what makes façade planks with rough surface to be in a perfect shape for 15-20 years. These planks can be used for the whole façade or only for some parts, for example in combination with bricks or clinker. Matching the colors nicely can make your house look warm and cozy.

Rough surface planks are in advantages over the traditional shaved surface planks because:

  • By shaving the surface of the plank, its pores are closed and paint cannot fully penetrate the pores of the wood, what makes the shaved surface planks valid for longer than five years;
  • Plain surface façade planks are getting grey from the impact of sun and atmosphere, so they have to be repainted quite often. It requires additional costs of labor and paint.

So, our specialists recommend choosing the wooden façade of rough surface as a reliable long-term decoration of your house façade. Many architects agree with that and tend to use this material for their projects more and more.
