End Matching

Unique to Ready Pine is our end-matching, which saves you time and money, as well as greatly improves the fit and finish of your project. The ends have the same bevel as the sides. With T&G on the ends, there is no need to splice over a stud or joist. When you get to the end of a row, take the off-cut back to the beginning to start the next row. Installation time is greatly reduced since you don’t need to measure, cut and dress each end. Waste is also less since you won’t be creating short off-cuts.

Premium Finishing

We stain the wood with over 10 different translucent colour options. This process draws out the natural features of the Lodgepole Pine species by enhancing the grain structure and knots. A low sheen topcoat is then applied to give the final product a silky smooth, furniture grade quality finish.

The backs are also sealed to help prevent cupping and warping. And the tongues are stained too – this is important because if they are not, as the pine expands and contracts slightly through the seasons, the tongues will show the raw white wood and touch-ups would be required each year.

Natural Beauty

Ready Pine is available in 12 stain colours that each bring out and enhance the look of the wood. The colours are translucent, which allows the wood grain and knots to show through. Ready Pine is also available in a clear finish that does not alter the natural colour of the wood, but allows it to mellow over time, giving it a rich, warm character that only quality wood can offer. They are all top coated with the same clear finish as the natural colour, giving it a smooth professional look. Some colours offer a more traditional look, while others are more contemporary.

All colours are available in both the V-match and Shiplap (Nickel Gap) profiles. Colours may not be exactly as shown. Refer to colour samples from your dealer for colour matching.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please download our installation instruction for complete details.
The exposed face is 5”. The thickness is 5/8”. The lengths are random: 10, 12, 14 & 16’ long. We also offer 8’ lengths for in store purchase.
No, you cannot specify a set length and should expect to get some of each length in your order – except 8’ lengths – these can be specified.
Ready Pine is usually a custom order and you get exactly what you need to cover your space – so there isn’t a set quantity of Ready Pine – it’s whatever your project needs.
We minor bundle 6 pieces of the same length together and place the face inwards, so the pack is protected. Smaller bundles like this make carrying Ready Pine into your project very handy. We package the bundles into a lift of lumber to be carried on a truck or trailer. The lift is 4’ wide x 16’ long and the height depends on how much you order but is typically never more than 2’.
Yes, as the pine is exposed to UV light – even indirectly, like a ceiling – the colour will change. Natural changes the most and will look like Golden Pecan in a few years. The original colour stays the same, but it gets richer looking over time. Early American, Autumn Pine and Mocha don’t really change at all because the pigments are darker. Pickled Pine, Seagull, Beige, Bennington and Westcott have UV inhibitors in them to hold the colour, but in 5-10 years it will change slightly as well.
We use Premium Select Tight Knot Lodgepole Pine.
Ready Pine is mostly used in recreational properties and many of these are not heated in the winter. The pine will contract a bit in the winter, but this isn’t a problem. Three season cabins are totally fine.
Yes, if it’s for a porch or portico ceiling. No for soffits and exterior siding.
It’s sold through building supply centres. Visit your local store and ask for Ready Pine. If they are not familiar with our product please reach out to us at info@readypine.com or 519-669-8830
No.
Yes, best practice is to place Ready Pine in the space you will install for 7-10 days prior.
Some of our colours are our own (Pickled Pine, Seagull, Beige, Bennington, Westcott, Autumn Pine, Mocha and Cloud White). These you can order touch up stain when you order Ready Pine. Other colours we’ve match to MinWax brand stains (Golden Pecan, Ipswich, Puritan, Early American and Red Oak). For these you can purchase MinWax brand. Clear coat Natural is just clear so any brand of clear topcoat low sheen will work. You will need to apply a clear coat over any of our stains or MinWax stains to complete the trims project.
We recommend 5%. With the end-match feature there’s no need to cut back each piece to splice over a stud or joist. As well, at the end of a row the off-cuts are used as the starter piece for the next row. So, in theory, your waste is zero.
Yes, this is no problem provided there is adequate ventilation and water is not allowed to remain on the pine such as lining a shower.
Your choice. Horizontal is more traditional like a log cabin. Vertical is more contemporary and makes the room look taller. Horizontal can be installed directly onto the studs. Vertical you will first need to fasten furring strips every 16” and then fasten the Ready Pine to it.
Yes, you only need a few tools and a bit of common sense and you can install Ready Pine – chop saw, air nailer, measuring tape and a ladder are all the tools you need. It’s easier to do than drywall.
Yes, we use waterbased stains and topcoats. There is no VOC off-gassing. The topcoat is cured by UV light so it’s very durable.
