What type of Hardwood Porch is right for you?

We offer three options in addition to our Ipe Porch Flooring. Those are Garapa, Cumaru, and Massaranduba.

Garapa decking is a beautiful hardwood featuring a light yellow to golden brown color. As the wood naturally weathers, it takes on light silvery gray tones which means there is no need to apply annual sealers. A Garapa deck is resistant to rot, decay, splinters, scratches, and even fire – naturally without any chemical treatments.

Cumaru, also known as Brazilian Teak or Golden Teak, is a naturally durable Brazilian timber with a density similar to Ipe. Its consistent golden brown color and moderate cost make it an attractive alternate to more expensive hardwoods such as Teak or Ipe.

Massaranduba decking wood is one of the hardest and most durable timber species in the world. It is considered a cost-effective substitute for Ipe decking in some applications. With a reddish brown hue and straight grain, it has been nicknamed “Brazilian Redwood.”  It is naturally durable and resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications. It not only lasts a long time, but has the beauty of an interior hardwood. Massaranduba decking is another popular natural alternative to PVC or composite products.
