Cumaru outshines competitor products like composite, while providing customers with an all natural sustainably sourced decking material. This profile is slowly milled in our mills across the country down to a net ‘finished’ dimension of approximately 1 1/2″ thick by 3 1/2″ wide. It is also available in lengths from three feet up to twenty feet long.
Cumaru has long been known to be a great value to customers. It is often referred to as Brazilian Teak because of it’s highly durability and excellent lifespan. Cumaru has a proven lifespan of up to and over 50 years. This means you won’t have to worry about replacing your decking project for decades to come!
A big part of what makes Cumaru a popular decking choice is its very dense grain and its natural in grain oils. The combination of these two things gives Cumaru the ability to resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects! All while not needing any preservatives or chemical treatments. It’s natural ability to fight these things off also make Cumaru a very low maintenance wood.
In fact Cumaru will only require an occasional surface cleaning during its lifespan to keep the deck looking clean and beautiful. During this time your project will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina, but this happens to all wood with constant sun exposure and will not effect the woods durability. Many customers prefer to let their deck patina as it is the easiest level of maintenance there is.
However if a customer desires to retain the beautiful golden tan and reddish brown hues that Cumaru provides then all that is needed is a simple occasional application of Ipe Oil. Ipe Oil is a UV protective finish that does a great job at staving off the effects of sun exposure and locking in the natural colors of your hardwood. An occasional application will help keep your deck looking freshly installed for years to come.
All of our Cumaru is responsibly sourced from sustainable well managed forests. We ensure that our boards come from sustainable sources to help protect the rain forests. We also offer FSC hardwoods where the Forest Stewardship Counsel will monitor the wood every step of the way from logging all the way to installation in your home.
Cumaru is one of the best decking choices available and will be perfect for any outdoor application you may have in mind.
