Accoya | Gator Shingles
Accoya Shingles Clear
Production Description: Gator is the most heavily charred of our burned finishes. The siding has a thick layer of char on the surface of the board, which serves as a natural barrier to the sun. It will weather very well over time. It’s the most reminiscent of the Japanese Shou-Sugi-Ban.
Maintenance: Gator can be left unsealed, but is most often sealed with a matte clear coat, which protects against rub off on clothes and hands. Accoya Gator will never need to be resealed. Douglas Fir and Cypress Gator should be resealed with a clear coat every 7-10 years, depending on sun exposure and frequency of contact with human traffic. Dings and bad scratches can be touched up with a black exterior stain.
