1 x 4 Plus Tigerwood is a profile that takes the benefits of our standard 1 x 4 Tigerwood profile and adds an extra level of durability. Our Plus® line of Decking aims to bridge the gap between our standard 1″ x decking and our 5/4″ x decking, by blending better durability and good affordability. This profile is milled in our mills across the country down to a net ‘finished’ dimension of approximately 21mm thick x 3 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from six feet up to twenty feet long.
Known for it’s striking looks Tigerwood has garnered quite a reputation for being an attractive, affordable and durable hardwood. Tigerwoods exotic grain blends reddish browns, golden browns, dark grain accents and dark brown and black streaks to create a wild visual piece. No two Tigerwood boards are alike.
Looks aren’t everything though. Tigerwood also excels in strength and durability. Its combination of tight dense grain and natural in grain oils allows Tigerwood to shine under many conditions. It is able to resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects. It has a lifespan of up to and over 30 years. you won’t have to worry about replacing your deck for decades to come. It also is a very low maintenance wood, only needing an occasional surface cleaning to keep you deck clean and beautiful.
Over time and under constant sun exposure Tigerwood is going to patina. Many customers choose to let their deck patina as it make maintenance as easy as possible. However a customer looking to preserve the bold beautiful colors on their deck can do so with an occasional application of Ipe Oil will do the trick. Ipe Oil is a hardwood UV protector that helps stave off the effects of constant sun exposure. Using Ipe Oil will help lock in the color of your deck boards and make you deck look newly installed for years to come.
