2 x 10 Tigerwood
2 x 10 Tigerwood – Structural Integrity Meets Exotic Beauty
2 x 10 Tigerwood is a large profile with a lot to offer. This profile is great when put to use in arbors, pergolas, stair treads, and more! With a great combination of top tier durability and unmatched appearances, Tigerwood can’t be matched by competitor products. This profile is slowly milled in our warehouse across the country down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1 1/2″ thick by 9 1/4″ wide. It is available in lengths from one foot long up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwood’s beautiful grain exhibits hues of reddish brown and golden brown, with dark grain accents as well as dark brown and black streaks throughout. This wild grain pattern gives Tigerwood its great character and ensures that no two boards are quite alike.
While Tigerwood has gained much of its reputation based on its striking appearance, it is no slouch in the durability department. Being an exotic hardwood it has a lot of benefits tucked away in its dense grain and natural in grain oils. It is able to resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects. All without the use of harsh chemical treatments or preservatives! It also has a long lifespan of up to and over 30 years, making Tigerwood a hardwood you won’t have to worry about replacing for decades to come. During that lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood requiring only an occasional surface cleaning to keep your project looking beautiful.
Over time and with constant sun exposure, Tigerwood will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. This is an entirely natural process and happens with all woods. With many of our decking products customers will often choose to let their deck patina because that is the lowest level of maintenance possible. However with Tigerwood we recommend using Ipe Oil to help lock in those stunning colors. This UV protector helps stave off the effects of constant sun exposure and other harsh elements.
All of our Tigerwood is harvested from well managed forests. We only source our material from sustainable forests with all the proper logging methods utilized to promote a healthy rain forest. We also offer FSC certified wood where the Forest Stewardship Council tracks the wood from logging all the way to installation in your home.
Tigerwood’s beauty is unmatched by our competitors, and its striking appearance is sure to add plenty of character to your outdoor area.
