Paint or Stain?

Selecting the species

If you will be painting the moulding, select "Smooth Paint Grade". If you will be staining it, select a species that most closely matches the desired wood grain pattern. Not all mouldings are available in all species so it may be necessary to substitute. See the online catalog for specie availability.

The most common species in order of availibility are:

  1. Smooth Paint Grade
  2. Pine Stain Grade
  3. Oak Stain Grade
  4. Poplar Stain Grade

Other species are available on a limited number of mouldings. Please see the online catalog for specie availibility.

Info See "Searching the catalog " for tips on how to locate a match to your wood trim
