1 x 4 Plus Cumaru – Reliable, Affordable Decking
1 x 4 Plus Cumaru is an excellent decking profile that gives you a bit of an advantage over a typical 1 x 4 profile. Our Plus line of decking has added thickness to give your deck boards extra strength and durability at a better value level than the thicker profiles like 5/4″ and 2″. this profile is slowly milled in our mills across the country down to a net ‘finished’ dimension of approximately 21mm thick by 3 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from three feet up to twenty feet long!
While 1 x 4 Plus Cumaru is great for decking, this profile of hardwood is a very versatile wood with other uses included, benches, fencing, planter boxes, outdoor shower enclosures and more! This profile gives you the strength and versatility you need to create your dream project.
Cumaru has often been referred to Brazilian Teak by both builders and contractors. This is thanks to Cumaru’s great reputation for being a sturdy dependable decking material. It has the ability to outlast other decking options thanks to it’s long lifespan of up to and over 50 years!
A lot of Cumaru’s great benefits come directly from it’s very dense grain and natural in grain oils. This combination helps Cumaru resist wood rot, mold, decay, and even wood boring insects! All without the use of preservatives or chemical treatments.
This also helps make Cumaru a very low maintenance wood. It only requires an occasional surface cleaning to ensure that your deck stays clean and beautiful for years to come. For the ultimate level of no maintenance you can choose to let your deck naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. this natural process happens with constant sun exposure and many customers choose to go this route for the easy maintenance. However if a customer would like to retain Cumaru’s beautiful golden tan to reddish brown hues then an occasional application of Ipe Oil will help lock in those colors. Ipe Oil is a Hardwood UV finish that helps stave off the effects of sun exposure and helps bring out the natural color of your hardwood.
All of our Cumaru is gathered from sustainable well managed forests. Keeping the rain forests healthy and flourishing is key to a well managed forests, and we ensure that our logs are properly harvested from these well manged sources. We offer FSC certified wood, in which the Forest Stewardship Counsel monitors every step of the process from logging to installation in your home to ensure that your deck boards were properly manged.
