    Default Assistance in identifying floorboards, please.

    G'day all,

    Have pulled up carpet & masonite at home and wondered if I could have some advice on identifying the floorboards underneath. I am presuming Radiata Pine?

    Also have the option to pick up from a friend the pine pictured in the racking... also Radiata? Not Baltic?

    Thanks in advance...

    Here's the pine I can get my hands on... radiata or baltic?

    This pine is stored under cover, in carport/garage with 2 solid walls and 2 open walls. How long should I keep it in my house to acclimatise before laying?

    my guess would be radiata for both. I use the word guess deliberately. Often baltic has sections of grain that runs very close together.

    Good luck

    Westcoast is on the money, Radiata Pine it is.

    And when they are sanded and finished they should look something like these floors

    Thank you gents.

    Any advice on how long pine floorboards should sit inside to acclimatise before I lay them?
