Larch, as particularly resistant material, has high potential in window and door frame, as well as stairs and furniture production. Because of high resistance to abrasion, this timber is widely used for the floor boards, but because of the persistence of external conditions, for garden furniture, cladding and patio plank production.
In te range of colors larch can be attributed to at least 12-tone hues, and in this respect it is superior to the precious wood such as oak, beech, ash and maple. Colouring range is from almost white with a slight touch of yellow up to dark reddish – brown shades. But the basic tone is amber. The surface has a silky luster.
Such tonal difference is explained by a particular tree growing location, soil chemical elements’ composition and geology.
As an example, it is believed that red tint larch grows with iron rich soil, and serves as an indication of the geological clue for potential existence of minerals in the soil. It should be noted also that the red tint larch wood is also heavier than the lightest shades of larch woods.
Undoubtedly, larch has a beautiful texture and coloration of the wood does not require additional finishing or treatment. Untreated larch wood used in outdoor works with time (sun, rain, snow and wind) remains silvery gray shaded that gives the building a romantic and antique appearance.
