Timber is a unique material, one made by nature, not by man. It has a unique warmth and beauty all its own - no other interior decorating material can give so much satisfaction to the home decorator and it deserves some special attention. Here's some guidelines to help you achieve great satisfaction from your wall or ceiling project. Remember, when you pick up your tape to measure and cut each piece of panelling, measure the length twice and then cut once!
Which Species to use?
The extensive range available falls into two groups; the Warmwoods Collection featuring Western Red Cedar in both Premium and Tight Knot grades, California Redwood in both Premium Clear and Sap Streaked grades, Cypress Pine and Spotted Gum. The Whitewoods timber species are Whitewood, Tasmanian Oak, and Oregon. A choice of up to four panelling profiles i.e. V-Joint, Channel 1 & 2 and Regency is available in most species. (Check a timber panelling profile chart for details.)
Stockists of panelling profiles have samples that can be inspected, so the task of selecting which profile in a particular species will suit you best, is not difficult.
