For many years now, such a finishing material as lining has been in demand. Today on the market there are all kinds of its varieties, which differ in quality and size, and the materials from which they are made. For example, pine lining is interesting.
Benefits and features
A popular material such as pine has always held a leading position among various types of wood. Wooden lining, made of pine, has a very attractive appearance, a special color and an unusual pattern that has been created by nature itself over the years. Thanks to this texture, it will be possible to combine it with other materials, creating a unique style and design for any room.
It is also worth mentioning the small difference between the euro lining. Such a finishing material is appreciated for its environmental friendliness and functionality. After installation, the surface is smooth and has no visible seams. Often this material is used for walls and ceilings.
The main difference between such a wooden euro lining is that it is very strong and durable, has a low weight, so that the overall structure will not be overloaded and will not require additional fasteners. In addition, its installation does not require any special skills and abilities.
It is quite possible to mount such a lining yourself.
As for its durability, this is justified by the fact that this type of wood contains a sufficient amount of resins. By their nature, they are considered a kind of preservatives that do not allow a wooden product to deteriorate and deform for many years. By the way, this finishing material can last a long time even if you do not process it with protective agents.
Of course, the fact that such a pine finishing material can be purchased at a very affordable and attractive price can also be attributed to significant advantages.
Such a lining has no minuses, except for one thing: the pine easily and quickly absorbs water, after which it can deform or even find cracks on the surface. Therefore, it is not recommended to use it in rooms with high humidity without special treatment of its surface with various protective mixtures.
Pine Euro lining is of various types, has different sizes, grades, thickness, etc. To know exactly about all the features of the material, before choosing, you need to study in more detail all its types, classes and grades.
The most popular type of this finishing material is a standard wall paneling, which professionals also call "a quarter". Such material is an ordinary board with chamfers, which are removed from the longitudinal side. The popularity of such a lining is in its accessibility and practicality. Sometimes this type is made from wood that has not been properly dried, which affects the low cost of the material. Such a lining is suitable for technical work, but for internal repairs it is categorically not recommended to purchase it. After installation, it will begin to deform, which will ruin the repair and your mood.
Another type of eurolining is a material with a joint, which is called "tenon in the groove". There is a small depression on the panel itself, thanks to which water or condensation will drain down in the case of vertical installation. Such lining is processed on a special machine, and its thickness, as a rule, does not exceed 16 millimeters.
In addition to the fact that when choosing a lining, you need to take into account its type, you also need to pay attention to the class or grade of the material itself. The quality of the finishing material depends on this, and therefore the quality of your repair.
Extra class - this is one of the high quality varieties of pine lining, thanks to which you can easily create the interior of your dreams. Such high-quality finishing material has an ideal surface and uniform color. If you plan to sheathe a large room and you will need a lot of material, then it is recommended to purchase euro lining from one batch. This is necessary so that the wood does not differ in color, otherwise the overall appearance of the interior will not be uniform.
Class A - this is a good quality lining, which can rightfully be given the second place in the rating after the above-described variety. The quality of such wood is usually high.
Occasionally a knot or resin pocket can be found, but overall this finishing material is of very good quality.

Grade C material - this is the same finishing material that is rarely used in interior decoration. You can safely attribute such a lining to technical classes, which is suitable for outdoor or any other finishing work. On the surface of a material of this class, you can often find not only knots, but also holes and other similar defects.
The thickness of the material also varies. As a rule, these are panels of 13, 16 and 19 millimeters. The width of the panels is from 80 to 120 millimeters, and the length is from 0.5 to 6 meters. The size of the eurolining spike can be 8-9 millimeters.
