prefinished pine panelingA log cabin requires a different type of maintenance than houses with vinyl siding, stone, brick, or other materials. Interior wall paneling is protected better than exterior siding, which is exposed to the elements, but wood still ages differently than man made materials and is especially susceptible to changes in moisture. Interior paneling can dry out easily from heaters and log stoves during the winter, making a strong finish or stain a very important element. Prefinished pine paneling is a solid choice for new homes or remodeling interiors, especially when maintained correctly.

What is Prefinished Pine Paneling?

Our prefinished pine paneling is a knotty pine paneling that ships to you with a finish or stain already applied. All you have to do is just unwrap the packaging and nail it to your desired wall. We offer different types of finishes and stains – clear finishes keep the wood the same color, stains can make the wood look darker. Our barnwood paneling has a dark blue gray base with silvery white undertones that mimic the look of barnwood without the hassle of actually using it. Old barnwood has been weakened over the years, can smell musty, and is difficult to find in large quantities. Our specially formulated finish is paired with the strength of new wood to produce a safe, but weathered look.

The prefinished pine paneling is end matched with tongue and groove cuts on all sides to fit each piece together like a puzzle. This means less cuts and zero waste when fitting the paneling together. End matching changed the interior log siding industry for the better and saves homeowners on extra siding costs every year.

Pine Paneling Maintenance

When it comes to wood paneling, preventative measures are essential. Pine paneling is particularly affected by changes in moisture, as it can be difficult to initially draw all of the moisture out before application. Once wood becomes damaged it typically must be replaced completely to maintain the integrity of your house’s infrastructure. By regularly maintaining your pine paneling, you won’t have to replace it for possibly the entirety of your lifetime.
