Reliance Timber Rough Sawn Pine is an excellent choice for interior pieces of a home or project, such as boards in the internal framing. Rough Sawn Pine is untreated timber cut into planks and is often stronger than other types of wood, but since we do not kiln-dry it, it contains a higher moisture content.
Rough Sawn Pine planks are typically thicker and heavier than standard surfaced wood choices, making them a good option when strength and sturdiness are crucial. They are perfect for builders creating a rustic aesthetic. If having exposed beams to achieve that classic log cabin style is what you’re looking for in your home, then rough sawn pine planks are for you.
