When looking for softwood products, Abbeymead customers sometimes wonder what the difference is between hardwood and softwood. Some imagine that softwood is a soft material, that is not suitable for use in construction projects. This is not the difference between the hardwood and softwood products Abbeymead customers buy.
Hardwood comes from deciduous trees. This means trees that shed their leaves on an annual basis. You will recognise a deciduous tree in Autumn, when the leaves go orange and brown, and the Winter, when there are no leaves on the tree. In contrast, softwood is sourced from coniferous trees which are evergreen. In other words, they keep their leaves all year round. Hardwood includes timber like oak, beech, mahogany and maple. Softwood includes pine, yew and cedar.
Because coniferous trees, from which softwood is sources, grow quicker, the timber is less dense. This generally means that it is lighter than hardwood. However, it does not mean that it is softer. Think for example of a house. Many of the beams in a new house, such as the roof structure, the door frames and the wall structures, will be made of softwood. It is not soft in the absolute sense, as these softwood timbers can carry large weights for extended periods of time. Rather, it is soft in the sense that it is lighter and less rigid than the hardwood timbers.
In some instances, hardwood has the advantage. For example, if constructing a floor, many people will choose hardwood. This will not twist or warp and can resist damp and impact over time. On the other hand, for ceiling joists, door frames and wall structures, in many instances softwood offers superior qualities, such as a lighter weight and being easier to work and shape.
