Cumaru is an excellent wood that has earned itself a great reputation for being a strong and reliable wood. It is often referred to as Brazilian Teak by many builders and contractors. It owes much of its great reputation to its tight dense grain and natural in grain oils.
Its grain and natural oils give Cumaru a large variety of benefits such as the ability to resist things like wood rot, mold, decay, and even wood boring insects. It does all of this with no preservatives and no chemical treatments. This also lends Cumaru to being a low maintenance woods. Because you don’t have to treat it the only maintenance required is an occasional surface cleaning to keep your deck looking clean and beautiful.
Cumaru will naturally age to a smooth silver patina over time. This natural process happens thanks to sun exposure on the wood and often times customers will let their deck patina as it requires the least amount of maintenance that way. However if a customer wishes to retain Cumaru’s beautiful colors it is very easy to do so. An occasional application of Ipe Oil will easily to the trick. Ipe Oil does wonders to preserve the beautiful golden tan to reddish brown colors found in Cumaru, and applying this oil will help keep your deck looking clean and beautiful for years to come.
