How To Choose Your Pine Skirting Boards
by Marcel Hudson
You need to know a few things about skirting boards before you go out and buy some if you're in the market. Before you ever even set foot in the store to buy your boards there are a couple of things that you need to know.
Pine skirting boards tend to be a great choice for most for a few different reasons. The first reason is usually the cost of the boards themselves. Pine is a relatively inexpensive type of wood and so the skirting boards made of pine tend to be less expensive than other types of skirting boards as well. Another reason that people tend to like to use pine skirting boards is because they offer a great deal of flexibility as to what the final skirting board product will look like.
After cost, the most common reason people choose to use pine skirting boards is because they are really versatile. The versatility really comes from the fact that you can finish pine in so many different ways from staining to painting to applying a clear varnish to it.
The second most common reason that people choose to use pine skirting boards is because the great amount of flexibility they offer. When you work with pine you can choose to finish it any number of ways and that means you can use a wood stain on it or you can paint it or you can just put a clear varnish on it. After you know the type of boards you want to buy it will be time to actually go buy them.
The last thing you want to do is try to have your pine boards installed only to realize that they are not straight. After you have determined that you have a number of straight boards, then you will need to look more closely at each of the boards you are considering purchasing.
You want to carefully inspect each individual board. You are looking for things like cracks or scratches in the boards. You also want to make sure that there are no nicks in the wood.
Also, pine tends to have lots of knots in it so you if you don't like knots you'll need to pick your boards carefully to avoid those.
