When it comes to building bridges, fences and docks, you need a material that is both structurally sound and meant to last. 6 x 6 Cumaru provides you with top tier strength and durability while also providing a long lifespan of up to and over 50 years. This profile is slowly milled in our warehouses across the country to a net ‘finished’ dimension of approximately 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. It is available in lengths from three to eighteen feet.
This profile is great for posts for Bridges, fences and docks, providing a very stable and thick post to anchor your project while matching the overall look.
Cumaru has gained quite a reputation over the years. Many builders have nicknamed it Brazilian Teak because of it’s low cost and incredible durability. Cumaru stands out as a great affordable option that bests composites and hardwood alternatives in most every category.
Cumaru’s great benefits come largely thanks to it’s tight dense grain and natural in grain oils. these help make Cumaru highly resistant to wood rot, mold, decay & wood boring insects. It is a wood that will give you peace of mind for years to come. You can simply enjoy the hardwood life and rest easy on a safe and secure deck.
Cumaru, like most hardwoods, will naturally age to a smooth silver patina over time. Many customers choose to let their deck patina as it still looks great and retains all the same benefits, while requiring the lowest amount of maintenance. A patinated deck will only require an occasional surface cleaning!
If you wish to preserve Cumaru’s beautiful golden brown and reddish brown hues, an occasional application of finishing oil will suffice. Ipe Oil does a great job at maintaining this great look and will ensure that your deck will look as close to new as possible for decades to come.
Our Cumaru is responsibly harvested from well managed forests. Each board we sell comes from a sustainable source and thanks to our mill in Brazil, we can oversee the lumber at each every step of the process.
Cumaru rivals Ipe in many categories and continues to outperform composites and hardwood alternatives.
