Poplar/Cedar/Oak & Misc. Hardwoods
Poplar Trim boards offer superior paint and stain ability because it is an extremely versatile wood, and is perfectly suited to accept paint or stain. Poplar is also a non-resinous wood, meaning there is no bleeding or blotching through the finished surface because there is no pitch. Poplar is known as “the painter’s wood” because it sands to an extremely smooth surface and is the preferred paint grade species. Cedar Trim has remarkable dimensional stability, meaning the wood doesn’t change its size or dimension despite weather, humidity or temperature conditions. Many clear cedar wood products can be stained and painted and not lose their beautiful grained appearance. It is also an elegant and prestigious type of house finishing product that lasts a long time.
Oak Trim has superior stain ability and is suitable for all colors of stain or clear coat finishes. With little variation in grain or color, you can easily install throughout the home without spending time matching each piece. They are a consistent light brown shade with a hint of red.
