Bleacher Board

Familiar to most of us from our school days, these boards were there for the cheering, jeering, stomping, and private ‘under the stands’ rendezvous. We salvage Bleacher Boards from athletic facilities across the nation. The cream of the crop: solid, clear grain Douglas fir seat boards. We also have multistrip Douglas fir (made up of narrow strips glued together) and both solid and multistrip Southern Yellow Pine boards. As-found with bull nose edges intact, or customized into flooring with precision milled tongue & groove (we’ll even remove the gum) these nostalgic boards can do it all.

SQUARE FOOTAGE CALCULATOR:

Don’t worry, you don’t have to revisit middle school math to figure out how much flooring you’ll need – we make it easy!
 
Flooring, wall paneling, and ceilings are typically ordered by the square foot. To calculate how much you'll need, enter the width & length of the area you’re working on. If your room has an odd shape, enter in the width & length of each area and add them up. Our calculator adds 7% overage to allow for trimming & cutting on the job site. Some overage should be as high as 12%, depending on the project. Our wood experts can help you determine just how much to order.

SHIPPING DETAILS:

Our end:

Your order will be shipped via common carrier in most cases, which allows us to get the best shipping rates possible for you. Orders of flooring, lumber, and millwork are packaged in small “hand-bundles” that can be picked up by one or two people, and then stacked on a larger skid. We then wrap your order in lumber wrap, and shrink wrap the ends of the skid for maximum weather protection.

Your end:

Unloading your material from a truck is quite easy with some extra helpers on hand. The wood comes bundled in manageable sections that in most cases one person can carry at least one bundle.

Costs:

Since each order is different, it is difficult to estimate a typical freight cost, however If you’d like some ideas of the shipping cost for your order, please give us a call.

WOOD FLOORING QUALITY GUARANTEE:

All of Pioneer Millworks wood floors are custom-crafted to the highest standards. Each plank goes through numerous inspections for quality of grading & milling throughout the manufacturing process. We urge you and your installer to inspect your flooring prior to installation. If you are not 100% satisfied with your flooring, please contact us prior to any cutting, nailing, or installation and we will replace any materials which do not meet the grade specifications and information on your signed order confirmation. We reserve the right to require photographs of, or the return of, any material in question prior to the release of replacement flooring. Pioneer Millworks will not accept returns of, or replace, any materials which have been cut or installed once leaving our shop, or damaged in return transit due to improper or insufficient packaging.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Pioneer Millworks has created various grades and descriptions to quantify as best we can the board stock and finished product ordered. Due to the quirkiness and variability of our sources, these descriptions are very good, but not perfect guidelines. For this reason, we request that our customers review and agree to our terms and conditions. View them here.
