Three Beautiful Wood Siding Exterior Panel Configurations
TerraMai’s Exterior Wood Siding Panels come in three beautiful and subtly distinct styles of slatted panels: Modular Panels in either Square Slat or Thin Slat, and Open Panels in Square Slat.
Both Modular Wood Panel designs are fabricated with slats attached to marine grade plywood and function as siding: weather-resistant exterior cladding, and can only be installed vertically.
Open Panels are constructed with slats attached to cross rails. This open structure enhances existing cladding but does not function as a cladding on its own. Open Panels may be used as see-through dividers, and may be installed either vertically or horizontally.
TerraMai takes sustainability to the next level by offering reclaimed wood siding panels. Reclaimed wood is salvaged from old structures and water reclaimed, giving it a new life and preventing unnecessary waste. By incorporating reclaimed wood into your exteriors, you not only add a unique touch but also contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions and deforestation.
With TerraMai’s range of exterior wood siding panels, you have a plethora of design possibilities at your fingertips. The panels can be customized to suit your preferred wood species, finish, and dimensions, allowing you to achieve a truly personalized look. Whether you desire a sleek and contemporary facade or a more rustic and weathered appearance, the versatility of wood siding panels ensures that your vision comes to life.

Exterior Wood Siding Panel Finishes
Finishes may be specified to suit the long-term aesthetic goals, and to maximize protection based on the wood species. Because Ipe and Teak are exotic species with high oil content, and Ipe is extraordinarily dense, TerraMai’s oil finishes must be used. For the other species, if the intent is to allow the wood to develop a silvery weathered patina, TerraMai’s Clear Protective Sealer may be applied. It protects the wood from moisture, requires less maintenance, but allows the wood to gracefully age as seen below.
If the goal is to allow the wood to maintain the original color, TerraMai’s Color Protecting Exterior Finish reduces UV damage and extends the wood’s natural tones.
With a stunning selection of natural wood species, sustainably sourced, and a bold set of panels to choose from, TerraMai’s Exterior Wood Siding Panels will bring European charm, quick installation, and will elevate your next design.
