5/4 x 4 Tigerwood – For a Strong Deck with Great Looks
As one of our more popular profiles for decking 5/4 x 4 Tigerwood is a great sturdy wood with a variety of applications. Decking aside, 5/4 x 4 Tigerwood is great for planter boxes, stairs, small railings, and more! This profile is slowly milled down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1″ thick by 3 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from six feet long up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwood has gained its great reputation largely thanks to its beautiful grain. It exhibits hues of reddish brown and golden brown, with dark grain accents as well as dark brown and black steaks throughout. This combination of bold colors and wild grain patterns makes each and every board of Tigerwood unique. Each bringing its own flavor to your home or outdoor area.
While Tigerwoods grain may be the first thing to catch your eye, its durability and strength will surely impress just as much. It’s combination of a very dense grain and its natural in grain oils gives Tigerwood numerous benefits. 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 lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood, requiring only a occasional surface cleaning.
Being outdoors all the time, your project will get exposed to constant sunlight day in and day out. Over time your wood will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. With our other hardwoods often times customers choose to let their project patina because it requires almost no maintenance and still can look beautiful. However with Tigerwood we do recommend Ipe Oil. This UV hardwood protector helps fend off the effects of constant sun exposure and preserves the colors of your hardwood. An occasional application will help keep your deck looking freshly installed for many years to come!
All of our Tigerwood comes from sustainable sources. We only use material that is responsibly harvested from well managed forests. We also offer FSC wood where the Forest Stewardship Council oversees every step of the process from logging all the way to installation at your home to certify that all the proper methods were used every step of the way.
Tigerwood is a beautiful hardwood that will surely impress anyone who sets foot on your deck for years to come.
