Tigerwood is famous for its exotic appearance and grain. Its grain displays hues of reddish brown and golden brown with dark grain accents as well as dark brown and black streaks throughout. This combination of color variations and grain patterns gives Tigerwood a very unique appearance with no two broads looking alike. this means that each board you install can bring it’s own character to your home or project!
Looks aren’t the only thing Tigerwood has going for it. Being a Brazilian Hardwood Tigerwood also packs in quite a few great benefits in its tight dense grain and natural in grain oils. It has a lifespan of up to and over 30 years making Tigerwood a decking material you won’t have to worry about replacing for years to come. During that lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood requiring only an occasional surface cleaning to keep your deck looking clean and beautiful. It also has a very high resistance to wood trot, mold, decay, as well as wood boring insects! All without the need for harsh chemical treatments or preservatives.
Over time and with constant sun exposure Tigerwood will naturally age to a smooth silver patina. This natural process happens to all hardwoods and often times many customers choose to let their project patina for the lowest level of maintenance possible. However with Tigerwood we typically recommend that customers make use of Ipe Oil. This hardwood UV protector enables you to preserve the colors of your deck by delaying the harsh effects of sun exposure. An occasional application will ensure that your deck can look like it was freshly installed for years to come.
Each piece of Tigerwood we sell comes from a well managed forest. We only sell boards that we know have been responsibly harvested from a sustainable source. We also offer FSC certified wood where the Forest Stewardship Council monitors the wood from the logging process all the way to installation at your home to certify that the proper techniques were used at every step in the process.
Tigerwood is a beautiful wood that brings plenty of benefits to the table. It is a wood that will surely impress for years to come and look great through it’s lifespan.
