5/4 x 4 Tigerwood Pregrooved – For a Beautiful, Strong, Unblemished Deck
5/4 x 4 Tigerwood Pregrooved is a popular profile of decking that brings both exotic beauty and one of the best installation options.This profile is perfect for decking, docks, planter boxes, benches and more! We milled this profile down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1″ thick by 3 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from four feet up to fourteen feet long.
Pregrooved decking allows you to utilize the hidden fastening system. This system uses Ipe Clips, which slot into the pregrooved edge of the board and allow you to screw into the bottom portion of the pregrooved edge. With this system you can safely secure your deck while preserving the smooth clean look the top of the deck provides.
Tigerwood is known for its exotic beauty. Its wild 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 colors and wild grain patterns gives each and every board its own character. Each board brings its own level of personality to your project.
Looks aren’t all that Tigerwood is famous for though. Being a Brazilian hardwood, it is also a very durable wood that brings numerous benefits along with it. It has a lifespan of up to and over 30 years, making Tigerwood a long lasting wood that will last for decades. It also has the ability to resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects. all without the use of harsh chemical treatments or preservatives! Tigerwood is also a very low maintenance wood, requiring only an occasional surface cleaning.
Tigerwood over time will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. This process happens over time and with constant sun exposure. With our other hardwood offerings many of our customers choose to let their deck patina because of the low maintenance it offers. However with Tigerwood we do recommend the use of a hardwood finish like Ipe Oil. This hardwood UV protector helps fend off the effects of sun exposure and preserve the colors of your hardwood longer. With an occasional application you can help keep your deck looking like new for years to come.
Our Tigerwood is gathered only from well managed forests. We only sell hardwoods that have been harvested form a sustainable source that helps promote the health of the rain forest. We also offer FSC certified wood where the Forest Stewardship Council monitors the wood from logging all the way to installation at your home to certify that proper techniques were used at every step of the way.
Tigerwood is a beautiful wood that will add a great character to any home or outdoor area.
