Material Testing

Posted by on 3/28/12 at 03:41pm

About a year ago, Bob and I nailed two samples of Cambia wood siding to a south facing exterior wall of Jamey Garza’s studio compound in Marfa. After a year in the desert sun, through the diurnal fluctuations of temperature, the sample looks almost the same as a year ago. Cambia is a thermally modified wood (domestic and FSC). This treatment improves the dimensional stability and decay resistance of the wood. We plan to use Cambia on the Kruger’s deck and hope it performs the same way!
