Structural Pine Benefits

Structural Pine is becoming an increasingly popular timber as more plantations are established to meet the demand for the product. It boasts a number of benefits making it the ideal building material.

Renewable: Pine in Australia is harvested from plantations that are regulated by government organisations to ensure they are sustainable and have a minimal environmental impact.

As it is harvested from plantations, it lessens our demands on timber from our state forests, thus preserving the natural beauty of Australia.

Easy to Work With: Structural timbers are easier to cut, stain and carve than other natural materials. This reduces the amount of time projects take to complete.

The biggest benefit to working with pine is its acceptance of nails. Some timber materials prove difficult to nail– some of which even require pre-drilled holes.

Resistance to Decay: Pine wood can be treated to resist decay and rot. It is a worth investment for longer-lasting structural pine timber. Unlike steel and other metal construction materials it does not corrode in salt air or heavy industrial environments.

Aesthetic Natural Design: Timber is naturally pleasing to the eye, and little needs to be done to make is beautiful. With its unique grain structure and patterns, structural pine has a unique aesthetic value.

Versatile and Durable: Structural and visual grade pine timber is often chosen for outdoor structures.

Structural pine is hard-wearing and durable, making it an ideal timber to use for structural framing, decking, patios and flooring construction. Additionally, it is better for construction projects that rely on strength and durability, such as flooring, fencing, decking and high-quality furniture. Softwood is best utilised on doors, windows, ceilings and furniture.
