Wide Plank Clear Pine shipped to Montana
Below is the photo we received from our newest customer, Pioneer Log and Timber Homes of Victor Montana. A legendary builder from Big Sky Country, so much so that we can honestly say "we feel honored they are using our materials considering their reputation and resources".
We know we have the best flooring anybody's money can buy, we are pleased PLT Montana realized it when they received our samples. This is a company that only puts the very best materials in their lodges, we are a perfect match. Speaking of matching ,Wide Plank Clear (Prime) Southern Yellow Pine is not an off the shelf item- for most companies, we thrive on unique or hard to find.
The two quotes below are from Pioneers website (home page) which also includes instructions on how to use their website, try it, and the most amazing gallery this writer has ever seen. The reason Pioneer is a perfect match for SYP Direct; top of the line materials, each order ownership is involved, our Alabama Knotty and Heart Pine is milled to order which gives it continuity along with securing an easy fit during installation. And finally, our prefinished flooring, both custom and commercial, is made in the USA.
Of note, this is how we create wide plank prefinished heart pine as opposed to the normal 3 1/4 or 5" you see being offered everywhere in UV Aluminum Oxide...blah blah blah. We use your choice of oils, water based or unique finishes such as the Zero VOC Monocoat by Rubio. (visit Rubio color creator app on website)
The pictures below were sent to us by Pioneer in hopes that we could match the look of this existing floor. We get similar calls all the time but rarely does one catch our attention like this one did once we visited their site. Very impressive and even more they have that portfolio but are still down to earth and easy to work with. Rob and everyone we dealt with has been fantastic from the ordering process to the 1900 miles journey to MT. We urge you to visit their website if for nothing else than to see some an amazing portfolio, this is not your local log cabin builder- not even close.
About Shipping with SYP Direct
So what is our secret? How do we consistently ship flooring across the country without worrying about damages to the tongue and groove, for example? The answer is two-fold; one we explain the 10% waste factor so all customers understand and order it, two we pack our materials to ship, protecting the floor against the normal wear and tear of travel, plus the occasional bad fork lift driver.
OK, so maybe there is third reason having to do with the old school philosophy that the "customer is always right"- we have your back; we do everything we can do to make sure you are happy when all is said and done. Our job is not over until the floor is installed, find that anywhere else..no way. Call or email us today for a quote, a sample or to make a purchase- we look forward to working with you on your project.
Shiplap and V-groove more popular than ever.
The cool thing about walls and ceilings is that nobody walks on them, so the can be about style and profile (forgive the pun) than stability. You are really only limited by your imagination as you can change colors and species to create the perfect blend for your style. You may also remember the old term Car-siding or Bead board these are all used to describe 'profiles' or the way they fit together. Flooring normally uses a tongue and groove profile whereas a wall uses v-groove for example.
Can you use tongue and groove on ceilings?
The first question most people ask is about the grade, after they say something like "wow that is a bunch of pine". The answer is that you are looking at Knotty Pine our #2 grade but because so much was purchased they were able to put the highest heart content boards on the floor giving the impression they had two grades.
