1 x 6 Tigerwood – Build Your Dream Deck
1 x 6 Tigerwood is a popular decking profile for numerous reasons. It’s a sturdy profile that brings with it plenty of benefits. This profile is perfect not just for decking but for docks, fences, railings and more! This profile is slowly milled in our mills across the country down to a net ‘finished’ dimension of approximately 3/4″ thick by 5 1/2″ wide. It is also availalble in length from three feet up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwood is famous for it’s wild variety of colors. It grain displays shades from golden brown to reddish brown, with dark grain accents and brown and black streaks throughout. This combination of color varieties makes Tigerwood one of the most unique looking decking materials you can get. Each board you purchase will have a distinct character to it.
Looks aren’t the only thing Tigerwood has going for it though. Its dense grain brings a ton to the table and makes Tigerwood a very special material. It has a lifespan of up to and over 30 years, so you won’t have to worry about replacing your deck for decades to come. It can resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects, making Tigerwood very durable and weather resistant. It also has high resistance to slipping and scratching, making it a safe wood for bare feet.
Tigerwood is a very low maintenance wood, only requiring an occasional surface cleaning to keep your deck looking clean and beautiful. Over time and with constant sun exposure Tigerwood will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. Allowing your wood to patina will result int he lowest level of maintenance. However if you are looking to preserve the bold colors Tigerwood brings to the table the the use of Ipe Oil will do the trick. Ipe Oil helps lock in the colors and resist the effects of constant sun exposure.
