Softwoods are found all over the world and come in various qualities, durability and prices. Generally speaking, softwoods are used for construction, general and internal joinery, and joinery that is not needed for its aesthetic qualities. Softwoods can be as durable as hardwoods given the correct treatment and maintenance.
Redwood, Pine and Douglas Fir softwoods grow faster than hardwoods, which makes them cheaper than hardwoods. For our joiners, softwoods are easier to work with and faster to process. They also come in more reliable sizes and qualities than hardwoods, and can cover a wide range of uses in construction.
