Perennial Wood porches enter South Atlantic

Perennial Wood porch flooring expanded distribution in the South Atlantic through Snavely Forest Products.

The new line of long-lasting, real wood, tongue-and-groove porch flooring is the first Perennial Wood product to be distributed in the South Atlantic. Perennial Wood is a product of Kingsport, Tenn.-based Eastman Chemical Co.

The move expands the porch product availability to professionals and homeowners in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

“Homeowner investments in outdoor living areas, including porches, continue to trend upwards in our country,” said Brant Mitchell, market development manager for Perennial Wood porch flooring. “The durability of Perennial Wood porch flooring provides a real wood option that is guaranteed to last. Now homeowners and builders in the South Atlantic states can invest in porches that will be enjoyed for generations to come.”   

Modified through TruLast Technology, Perennial Wood is three times more dimensionally stable than unmodified wood and resists changes from moisture for decades, according to Eastman. The modification process makes it less susceptible to shrinking and swelling, which can lead to separation between boards, as well as cupping and warping.

According to Eastman, Snavely Forest Products was chosen for its market knowledge, reputation and track record.
