BarkClad – handsome wood siding that’s easy on the environment


Sustainability is fast becoming a standard in the construction industry. Consumers often favor using FSC certified products. BarkClad, a wood siding product that’s Made in the USA, repurposes the bark from trees that have already been cut, utilizing what would have gone to waste.


This high quality natural product takes carefully hand-peeled Tulip Poplar bark that’s hand cut on-site from trees that have been sustainably harvested for the furniture and plywood industries. This distinctive and beautiful bark siding is found on the exteriors and interiors of fine rustic homes and lodges, lake cabins, seaside cottages, and natural commercial properties across North America.

BarkClad siding requires almost no maintenance and needs to added coating or bug treatment. And it weathers naturally over time, growing lighter or a bit darker depending on the amount of shade it’s in. Available in both the United States and Canada, BarkClad comes in three grades: 1 ¼”+ Super Exterior Premium Grade, ¾”-1” Exterior Standard Grade and less than ¾” Interior Grade. Any of these will create an attractive rustic look that homeowners will enjoy for years.
