What is Douglas Fir?
Many people tend to confuse Pine and Douglas Fir or think that there is no real difference between these two popular wood species. This is understandable because both are softwoods harvested in the northern hemisphere and are used extensively in the building trades for lumber, plywood, flooring and other woodworking projects.
While both species have their merits and are excellent choices for a variety of projects, there are some differences you should be aware of when considering which one you may want to purchase for your home:
1. Grain & Stability
Wood grain is an excellent indicator of overall stability. The closer together grain lines are, the more strength and stability there is to the wood. Pine tends to have broad grain lines that wander, and if not properly prepared and dried (like all of our Pine Planks are) the soft wood between those grain lines may expand and contract, causing cupping and twisting. Douglas Fir on the other hand, features a tight, flowing grain pattern that is naturally more resistant to warping and twisting.
Pine’s grain structure varies in colors ranging from brown to yellow-white while Douglas Fir has a uniform dull-yellow color. Douglas Fir grain features a beautiful flowing effect that is absolutely stunning and because of its incredibly uniform appearance, it readily accepts a wide variety of finishes with great consistency.

Owner and Installer Responsibilities
Wood is a natural material that possesses certain unique characteristics. Our flooring is manufactured in accordance with the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship. Standard trade practice allows up to 5% margin of error for natural imperfections and manufacturing defects.
The following requirements are the responsibility of the floor’s owner, even if the owner is absent at the time of installation:
- Prior to installation, the installer and owner must ensure that the work environment and subfloors meet or exceed the minimal specifications.
- Prior to installation, the installer and owner should conduct a final inspection of grade, color, manufacturing, and finish quality of planks to ensure that the floor conforms to the purchased product.
- During installation, the installer should not use any planks that raise doubts about the grade, color, manufacturing quality or finish. Tilton Coffered Ceilings, Inc. will replace only defective boards, not exceeding the 5% margin of error allowed by industry standards.
- Tilton Coffered Ceilings, Inc. shall in no case be liable of installer’s lack of judgment or poor quality of installation.
- Once installed, all boards are considered as having been accepted by the installer and owner, even if owner is absent at time of installation.
Exclusions Due to Certain Inherent Properties of Wood
Wood expands and contracts according to variations in humidity. Even if flooring is properly installed, narrow gaps and slight distortions can occur. Moreover, exposure to light alters the color of all wood species. Areas covered with area rugs, furniture, construction paper, and any other light blocking objects will result in color variations.
