Eastman has announced the availability of its Perennial Wood porch flooring to homeowners and trade professionals in Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Eastman selected Snavely Forest Products, a major building products distributor with over a century-old experience, for distributing Perennial Wood porch flooring through select building materials dealers and professional lumberyards in the South Atlantic states.
The new durable, real-wood, tongue-and-groove porch flooring line is the first Perennial Wood product to be supplied in the South Atlantic states. Porches have regained their fame in recent years, thanks to developments in building materials that facilitate outdoor living spaces less vulnerable to the problems caused by moisture and homeowners¡¯ increasing interest towards high-quality outdoor time.
Perennial Wood provides real wood with minimum disadvantages to outdoor porches. It is modified using TruLast Technology, thus providing three fold more dimensional stability when compared to unmodified wood and resisting changes caused by moisture for years. The modification technique makes Perennial Wood less vulnerable to swelling and shrinking, which can cause warping, cupping and separation between boards.
Perennial Wood porch flooring is available in three uncoated profiles as follows
- 29/32" x 5¨û" finished face in 8' and 10' lengths
- 7/8" x 3¨û" finished face in 8' and 10' lengths
- 3/4" x 3¨û" finished face in 8' and 10' lengths
Perennial Wood has long-lasting life when compared to unmodified wood, thus reducing material disposal in the long run. TruLast Technology eliminates toxic elements in the wood. Since Perennial Wood is produced from U.S. Southern pine and processed in the country, the requirement for supplying wood from offshore resources is totally eliminated, thus causing significant reduction in environmental footprint.
