A Buffalo Lumber Original!

PEACE OF MIND- PINE™

This is a new finish technology that applies one sand stroke and 2 coats of finish dried as it is applied with an ultra violet light. The result is … what can we say? This is the coolest interior paneling product we have seen yet. You will love the low maintenance of the Clear finish Ultra Violet (UV) dried paneling. The extra UV protects against fade and makes it easy to keep clean. This is an excellent choice for kitchen paneling where you might worry about traffic, water and staining.

The result is beautiful paneling showing all the natural wood character and grain with a rich, glowing sheen. Take a close look at the wood. Every grain, every pattern, every nuance is highlighted by the hand staining process. My Grandfather would say “it’s SEXY”.

PEACE OF MIND- PINE™
THE BEST FINISH IN THE INDUSTRY!


WHY IS IT THE BEST INTERIOR PANELING FINISH? There are only a few of these high tech, UV dried as it's applied, machines in existence today and there is only one Rick. Rick is just one of those guys who would rather be tinkering in the shop with his machine than just about anywhere else. He is "ridiculously meticulous". I know because he tosses our boards if they don't meet his approval. But we don't care because we have never had a complaint on our "Peace of Mind - Pine".
 
1st he runs a "tie" coat. It is a binding agent that holds the finishes to the wood and secures any loose knots that may be present.
 
2nd time through the machine he runs a seal coat which is applied to the front and back of the board.
 
3rd - the board face to be used is sanded.
 
4th - this step is reserved for hand staining the wood or leaving it au natural (CLEAR).
 
5th & 6th - two coats of Urethane, UV dried as applied, Semi-Satin Urethane on the face to give it that extra smooth finish.
 
The whole time Rick is selecting anything that doesn't meet his approval out of the pile.
 
The result is quite simply "The best interior finish in the industry". It's a force field around your wood. You buy it slap it up and enjoy it for years- that's it! Every piece of wood is back-sealed and ready to install. Imagine how long it would take you to stain, sand, put one coat of poly urethane, let dry and then put another coat of poly down on one foot of wood. Now multiply that process by thousands of lineal feet of paneling. Whew, no thanks. Now you know what makes our Factory Finished PEACE OF MIND- PINE™ Pine so appealing (besides its obvious beauty).
 
Thinking about doing the poly finish yourself? "It was a Thick, Sticky, Streaky, Globby, Noxious Nightmare!" Quoted verbatim by guy who Field Applied Polyurethane in his home.

All the protection of UV Finished Pine;
All the beauty of Hand Stained character wood!


Dear Buffalo Lumber!
 
WOW! What a great product you sold me with the UV Ponderosa pine paneling. It has turned out terrific, and I've already been asked by several people for information on where they can get it. One was a contractor who would love to put it in his home, and the other was an interior decorator who fell in love with it. I hope these new contacts bring you additional orders.
 
Although the room is not yet completed, I have tried to put a few pictures together in hopes they could grasp how good this product looks. However, the pictures don't seem to do it justice. Hopefully they'll look good to you.
 
Finally, thanks so much to all of you for being so helpful and patient. You all made it so easy and since I was buying from a complete unknown (never heard of you and had no real knowledge on the product) I couldn't have been more pleased as to how things turned out. If you would ever need a testimonial or a reference, I'm your man! Thanks so much for making it a pleasure to do business with you!

Buffalo Customer - Clear UV Finished Pine Paneled apartment above a horse barn in Kentucky


Janylyn, I've been intending to write you for some time to says thanks to you and Chris for such a smooth processing of our lumber order. In late spring I contacted Buffalo Lumber about a project in Lexington, KY. We were looking for the "right" look for a barn apartment. Both you and Chris were extremely helpful in coaching me through the various types of wood available and the proper measuring of the space. I knew very little about lumber, and even less about building, and you both guided me to a successful project.
 
Thanks again to you and Chris and Buffalo Lumber. Our work with you was the most accurate, smoothest part of our buliding project. I highly recommend Buffalo Lumber to other potential customers.

Introducing ... GRANDADDY BLUE STAIN PINE!


BLUE STAIN Pine Paneling with UV Finish
A NATURAL and UNIQUE interior Pine Paneling look!


GRANDADDY BLUE STAIN PINE's distinctive blue-gray swirling colors are the result of a stain fungus that travels into the tree when pine beetles bore into the bark. In the last 10 years a large pine beetle infestation has spread rampantly forcing the cutting and processing of many trees before the mills were ready in order to limit the spread and salvage the dead trees before it was too late.
 
As many areas of our continent experience warmer temperatures the main defense against this invasive beetle - winter cold - ceases to exist. And of course it is the larger diameter Ponderosa and Lodgepole pine trees that the beetles prefer.
 
As sad as it is to see these magnificent trees taken down it would be even sadder to lose this opportunity to utilize this uniquely beautiful wood that in favor of cutting down new trees. Check out our customer pictures of their GRANDADDY Blue Stain Pine Paneled home.

From tragedy comes beauty...
British Columbia is going to lose more than 20% of its pine trees between now and 2020 due to the Mountain Pine Beetle Epidemic. These little buggers have killed over 150 million acres of trees from Mexico through Canada.
 
The beetle works in conjunction with a fungus that causes the wood to streak the most amazing colors of blue with deep amber highlights. Blue Stain pine as we call it in the industry HAS to be cut and milled or it goes to waste and causes increased fire hazards.
 
As sad as it is to see these magnificent trees taken down by beetle infestation it would be even sadder to see this incredible looking wood go to waste while live trees are cut down for processing. Utilizing Blue Stain wood is an opportunity to create something very unique in your home and help the environment at the same time.
 
NOTE: The blue fungus is killed when the pine lumber is dried in kilns and does not decrease the usability of the wood paneling.
 
We have nicknamed it “GrandDaddy Pine” because the grey/blue streaks make the wood look 100 years old. This is quite simply the most unique looking wood we have ever seen and we fell in love with it the first time we saw it.
 
Combined with our Buffalo Lumber PEACE of MIND- PINE CLEAR + 2 UV Finish Coats the result is unique, luxurious and rustic all rolled into one.
 
Krystal & Chad said they wanted something that looked really Rustic and different. This is going to be their "forever" home so they wanted to make sure they got what they wanted. Check out our customer pictures of their Blue Stain Knotty Pine Paneled home.

"NOXIOUS NIGHTMARE"!


I have had several builders and log home enthusiasts who have called us to buy our Peace-of-Mind Pine because of the experiences they had trying to field apply polyurethane to previous jobs. One guy said he re did his basement and had nearly killed himself with the fumes.
 
          "It was a Thick, Sticky, Streaky, Globby, Noxious Nightmare!" (Verbatim).
 
"Things happen while you are doing it, you get taken away from it and then have to start again. I had our whole house stunk up for 3 weeks while I fought with that stuff and I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!" (We get that a lot). If you are going to do the job right, you can't do it cheaper or better than the machines.
 
The thing with paneling as opposed to flooring is that the volume of space is oppressive because paneling covers so much area. The scope of the project and the overwhelming nature of the fumes make it a herculean task to take on in the field. It takes 2 to 3 coats of polyurethane to do the job correctly. Each coat has to be carefully and evenly applied and then allowed to tack dry. You must lightly sand between each and every coat.
 
          In the wood paneling business you are 1 of 2 main types-
          1. The guy/gal who wants it done right
          2. The guy/gal who wants it done as cheap as possible
 
The deal with wood paneling is that you are making a tradeoff if you do not finish. The wood will be difficult to keep clean and will require more maintenance over the years than finished wood. It will also run the risk of any and all wood/moisture related problems that can occur.
 
The reason polyurethane is used on wood paneling is to protect it and make it easy to keep clean. The clean part is the one you must understand if you opt out of poly. If something stains that wood there will be very little you can do short of sanding and with natural darkening you may just have to get that old picture of grandma out of the basement.
 
The main point here is that on interior paneling you do not need to polyurethane if you understand the maintenance implications and risk to your wood. If you are trying to save a buck just field apply a stain or clear and hope for the best. On the other hand if you are the type who wants to do it exactly right (and you love that beautiful satin glow) there is no better finish that our UV Polyurethane.
 
The UV technology is what sets it apart. The urethane is specially designed to be dried as it is applied with the UV light. It is a state of the art process that eliminates streaking and drips. The result is an immaculate finish and a bullet proof board.
 
Save yourself the headache (literally) and get some "Peace of Mind Pine". You get it you stick it up on the wall and you forget about it. No muss no fuss and no "NOXIOUS NIGHTMARES".

Pine Paneling Coverage


Pine paneling is sold by the linear (or lineal) foot. Your quantity requirements are calculated by multiplying your square foot area by a linear factor based on the siding width. The Lineal Foot Factor is derived by dividing 12 inches by the individual pattern's exposed face.


A) Calculate the square footage in walls: length x height = sq. ft.
B) Calculate, and then subtract, the square footage of openings
C) Add 10% to cover trim and waste
D) Multiply the result by the factor for lineal feet


Pine T&G Siding Coverage
Nominal WidthDressed WidthExposed FaceLinear Ft Factor*
6"5 7/16"5"2.4
8"7 1/8"6 3/4"1.78
* assuming 3/8" board overlap



Pine QTR Log Cabin Paneling - No Reveal
Nominal WidthDressed WidthExposed FaceLinear FT Factor*
8"7-1/8"6 5/8"1.81
* assuming 1/2" board overlap


Coverage Example: If you are siding four walls 8 feet high by 40 feet long with 1x6" wide T&G pine paneling and we allow 10% of the total square feet for openings, you would need approximately 3040-3100 linear feet (LFT):

SQFT AREA: 4 * 8 * 40 = 1280 SQ FT - 128 (10% openings) + 115 (10% trim/waste) = 1267 SQ FT


1x6" T&G: 1267 SQ FT * 2.4 linear factor = 3040.8 LFT

1x8" T&G: 1267 SQ FT * 1.78 linear factor = 2255.3 LFT

2x8" QTR LOG: 1267 SQ FT * 1.81 linear factor = 2293.3 LFT
