"Hi larch will go a silvery grey colour as it weathers. Obviously if you have treated it with anything that can also change the weathered colour"

"After a year or two larch starts to turn grey. It has a sort of cement colour but you can still see the grain in the wood."

"If untreated it will turn black with a fungus that is a natural reaction to weather"

"as a result of the sun's oxidising UV rays, without treatment, larch cladding can rather quickly attain that silvery-grey look."
