4 x 4 Tigerwood
4 x 4 Tigerwood – Exotic Structural Support
4 x 4 Tigerwood is a great option for customers looking to add great support to their decking project, or even create railing posts, fence posts, and more! This profile is slowly milled down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 3 1/2″ thick by 3 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from four feet long up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwood is known for its stunning looks. Its unique grain displays hues of reddish brown to golden brown, with dark grain accents and some dark black and brown streaks throughout. This wild combination of colors and grain variations makes Tigerwood stand out among other woods and each board will brings its own flavor to your project.
While Tigerwood’s appearance may be the first thing to catch your eye, its strength and durability are as impressive as anything. 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 lifespan of up to and over 30 years. During that long lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood, requiring only an occasional surface cleaning.
over time and with constant sun exposure all hardwoods naturally patina. With our other hardwood offerings like Ipe and Cumaru, often times customers will let their deck patina as it makes maintenance as easy as possible and still is a great looking wood. However with Tigerwood we do recommend using Ipe Oil. This UV hardwood protective finish will help stave off the effects of sun exposure. With an occasional application you can keep your deck looking like new for years to come.
All of our Tigerwood is gathered from sustainable, well managed forests. Every piece we sell is responsibly harvested with the health of the rain forest in mind. We also offer FSC certified hardwoods where the Forest Stewardship Council monitors the hardwood from logging all the way to installation in your home to certify that proper techniques were used at every juncture.
Tigerwood is a beautiful hardwood that will add a stunning look to any home or outdoor area.
