NEWPORT, Ark., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Curtner Lumber Company today announced that Building Products Inc. (BPI) of Iowa will distribute the company's Ozark Natural Paneling, a new line of hardwood planks for walls, ceilings and wainscot throughout the Midwest through its Council Bluffs, Iowa, location. Since December 2010, the product has been gaining momentum with its rich, rustic beauty for walls, ceilings and wainscot.
This is not the typical paneling of years ago, which was a pressed sheet product, according to Clay Curtner, president of Curtner Lumber. In fact, it's not engineered at all. "Ozark Natural Paneling is made from solid, heirloom quality hardwoods," he said. "The half-inch thick planks are tongue and groove, making them very easy to install with nails and/or glue." Curtner says Ozark Natural Paneling is American grown and sustainably harvested, with highlighted character marks that can only be engineered by nature.
BPI Council Bluffs specializes in wood products and Tom Sporrer, Panel Products Manager, says Ozark Natural Paneling is a nice fit for the BPI market area. "It's a unique product that is perfect for family rooms, offices and cabins," he said. Sporrer sees the market for the paneling being split between commercial and residential, with an emphasis on weekend getaway homes. "Consumers are not taking the big vacations like they used to, but they do like to get away from it all on the weekends." Easily installed by contractors or DIYers, Ozark Natural Paneling adds warmth and character while being easy to care for and durable.
Ozark Natural Paneling is available in a variety of species with regional appeal, including red and white oak, wormy maple, knotty alder, cherry, walnut and rough-sawn canyon red oak. Species-matching mouldings are also available.
Ozark Natural Paneling is perfect for remodelers, builders or DIYers and well suited for informal dens, rec rooms, man caves, hunting or fishing lodges, log homes, lake houses and cottages. Commercial applications include ski lodges, resorts, restaurants and office buildings. The paneling is very reasonably priced for a solid, natural hardwood product.
