Looking for an affordable material that you can use for a various range of construction projects? Our pine is the answer for you.
While being a soft wood, pine has the strength to support a residential frame construction, making it malleable and very easy to work with. Pine is a well-established wood used for construction. Pine is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
Below we discuss a few advantages of using pine timber, especially for flooring purposes and residential framing.
Pine is a renewable resource:
Pine is harvested from plantations in Western Australia, these plantations are regulated by government organisations in order to ensure their impact on the environment is always kept to a minimal. Because this pine comes from plantations, it will lessen the demands on timber from the state forests, which means they will be preserving the beauty of the south west.
Easy to work with:
If you do not believe us, ask a woodworker and they will surely tell you that pine is extremely easy to work with. The wood is easier to stain, cut and carve than most other natural materials, which will reduce the amount of time projects take to be completed. One of the biggest advantages of working with pine will be its acceptance of nails. Some materials are much more difficult to drive a nail through, some will even require pre-drill holes. If you are paying a professional for woodwork to be done, you do not want to spend money on such a time wasting exercise, not when we offer a viable alternative.
Resistance against rot and decay:
Treatment against rotting and decay is available for pine timber. It will however cost more but it is not so much an expense as it is an investment. You want your pine timber to last as long as possible. By stopping it from rotting you are increasing the longevity of the product. If your pine is rotting you will have to replace it or even start the building process all over again. There is a large range of treated available today. Contact Builders Buyer for more information on the different types.
Aesthetic natural design:
When it comes to the benefits of pine timber, let’s face it, it is naturally pleasing to the eye, not much will have to be done to your it in order for it to look good, with the natural grains and patterns in the wood it has an aesthetic appeal.
Durable for areas of high foot traffic:
Pine is resistant against wear which makes it perfect for building a patio, deck or for flooring where there is always traffic. Over time, it will eventually succumb to wear and you will need to replace it. However, because pine is more affordable than most other materials, it will be less of a financial burden to replace.
