Cumaru has a lifespan of up to and over 50 years, which means that when purchasing a Cumaru deck, you are investing a deck that will last for decades to come and add a great value to your home.
What makes Cumaru so resilient? A combination of a very dense grain and natural in grain oils helps Cumaru fight off wood rot, mold, decay and wood boring insects. IT can do all of this without the use of preservatives or chemical treatments. This also helps make Cumaru a very low maintenance wood.
With constant sun exposure and time Cumaru will naturally age to a smooth silver patina. Patinated Cumaru will still retain it’s excellent durability and strength. Many customers choose to let their deck patina s it makes maintenance super easy. Only requiring an occasional surface cleaning.

This hardwood UV finish will help protect against the sun exposure and lock in that gorgeous grain color. With occasional applications you can keep your deck looking freshly installed for years to come.
