Keep reading for an introduction to this amazing flooring surface!
Pine wood comes from the millions of pine trees found on six of the Earth’s continents. It’s a good thing there’s so much pine in the world because pine trees are the world’s leading supplier of building materials and paper products. There are approximately 120 species of this evergreen and coniferous tree. One important thing to know: pine wood is actually a softwood, meaning it’s softer than the many hardwoods that populate the floors of homes in West Columbia, Irmo, and Lexington SC.
Why Choose Pine?
Pine wood is known for having knots or pins, giving it a wonderful weathered appearance that many homeowners love. Does your home look like it should be featured on Fixer Upper? Do you want to have a beautiful, rustic aesthetic? If so, pine wood would look amazing as your flooring surface.
Another benefit of pine wood is that it has a lower environmental impact than many alternatives. Pine trees grow faster than most hardwood trees and thus are speedier to replenish. This makes pine wood an optimal flooring option for homeowners with an eye on the environment. When one pine tree is cut down, another will grow in its place a lot sooner than a hardwood tree.
Budget Friendly Price
For price sensitive shoppers in West Columbia, Irmo, and Lexington, SC., pine wood flooring is a perfect option. Pine wood is typically less expensive than most hardwood varieties. A softwood pine might run about half the price of a more expensive hardwood species like oak, making it fantastic option for our clients.
