5/4 x 6 Tigerwood Pregrooved
5/4 x 6 Tigerwood Pregrooved – High Strength & Exotic Looks
Much like our 5/4 x 4 option, 5/4 x 6 Tigerwood Pregrooved is a very popular decking profile that brings all of the same benefits of the smaller profile, with added durability and strength. We custom mill this profile down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1″ thick by 5 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from three feet long to twenty feet long.
The pregrooved profile is a popular choice thanks to it’s ability to utilize the hidden fastener system. The hidden fastener system allows you to use Ipe Clips. these clips slot perfectly into the pregrooved edge of the board and able you to screw through the clip into the lower half of the board. This way you still have a very secure board on the joist system while also preserving the sleek look of the top of the deck with no screw heads or wood plugs visible.
Tigerwood has garnered its reputation largely thanks to its unique looks. Its grain exhibits hues of reddish brown and golden brown, with some dark grain accents throughout as well as dark brown and black streaks.This variable grain pattern and color combination makes each and every board unique. Every board brings its own character to your project with no two boards looking alike.
While Tigerwoods appearances are fantastic and likely the first thing to catch your eye, once you find our the benefits tucked away in its dense grain and natural oils you’ll find it holds up very well in the durability department. Tigerwood has along lifespan of up to and over 30 years! During this lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood, requiring only an occasional surface cleaning to keep your project fresh. It also will be able to resist wood rot, mold, decay, and wood boring insects. All without the use of harsh chemical treatments or preservatives!
Over time and with constant sun exposure all hardwoods will naturally patina. With many of our hardwood options many of our customers choose to let their project patina for the low maintenance benefits it brings. However with Tigerwood we do encourage our customers to consider using Ipe Oil. This hardwood UV protector allows you to help lock in the color of your wood and stave off the effects of sun exposure. An occasional application of this hardwood finish will allow you to keep your Tigerwood deck looking almost newly installed for years to come.
All of our Tigerwood is gathered from well managed forests. We only sell Tigerwood that has been responsibly harvested from sustainable sources that help promote the health of the rain forests. 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. This provides you with a certification that the wood was properly handled at every juncture.
Tigerwood is the premiere choice for an exotic wood that can bring a wild character to any home or outdoor area.
