Real Pine. Real Easy.
First you need to calculate the square footage of the area of your project. For example, for a wall 8′ high and 10′ wide, the square footage would be 8×10=80 sq. ft. Then you need to subtract the square footage of any windows or doors in the project area to finalize your total square footage.
Next, calculate your lineal footage by multiplying the square footage by the exposed surface area of the product that you are using. For example, Johnson Lumber 1×6 T&G has a 5.125 face. This means that you would multiply your square footage by 12 and divide by 5.125 to get your lineal footage. If you are using 1×8 T&G, the face coverage is 6.875, therefore you would multiply your square footage by 12 and divide by 6.875.
Finally, always account for about 5% waste factor so that you do not run short. To do this, multiply your final lineal footage by 1.05 and that will be the amount to order.
End-Matching means that each board has a tongue on one side and a groove on the other side. When the boards are installed, the ends lock together and create a bond that will eliminate the chance of the boards cupping and helps reduce expansion and contraction of the wood. This also means that the boards do not need to all end on a stud, reducing installation time!
Johnson Lumber uses state of the art technology that sands the board every single time an application of stain or clearcoat is applied. This means that your board is sanded (at minimum) of two times making the application of stain and clearcoat smooth and consistent. This also means that when the boards are finished, they will all match because the color stays consistent throughout the process.
We recommend dry-dusting your finished product to remove dust or general buildup. The clearcoat finish makes cleaning a breeze!
Installation is easy. It’s just 4 steps – lock, level, tack & trim! You can view our installation videos by clicking here.
Eastern White Pine has a natural aging process, allowing your wood to grow more beautiful over time. The wood will slightly yellow, or turn an amber color, especially around the knots and darker grain. Please see our installation and care instructions page for more details.
