THE DESIGN VISION

In the competitive world of commercial spaces, making a lasting impression is key. For this dental office in Idaho, the facade wasn’t just an exterior; it was an opportunity to create warmth and distinction.

THE SOLUTION

Choosing AquaFir™ prefinished natural wood cladding wasn’t just about aesthetics; it was a strategic move. The light brown hue and wire brushed texture not only added visual appeal but also conveyed a sense of tranquility, setting the tone for a more inviting experience for patients.

By combining the natural warmth of wood with sleek black metal design elements, the result was a facade that stood out while still maintaining a professional demeanor.

MAINTENANCE MADE EASY

One of the advantages of opting for prefinished natural wood cladding like AquaFir™ is the ease of maintenance. Unlike traditional painting methods that require stripping, sanding, and reapplying coats of paint, maintaining wood cladding involves simple steps like cleaning, drying and reapplying. This not only saves time but also ensures that the facade maintains its allure for years to come.

WHY AQUAFIR™?

In the realm of commercial design, every detail matters. From creating a welcoming atmosphere to ensuring practical maintenance, AquaFir™ prefinished natural wood cladding proves to be a versatile and efficient choice for elevating commercial facades.
