Tigerwood Brazilian Hardwood Decking
Why buy Tigerwood Decking? Tigerwood has a
beautiful distinctive grain pattern and brilliantly reddish colors.
It is twice as or harder than oak. The decking patterns are
distinctive and why it is called Tigerwood. It has a 25 year plus
lifespan like all the Brazilian hardwoods. Its brown grain
pattern makes it the perfect match to Ipe. We sell tons of Tigerwood
with Ipe as accents. This is a great wood for any home or
Tigerwood deck and decking is incredibly hard. It is 2 to 2 1/2
times as hard as
oak. It is insect resistent and what bug would try to bite it
when there are so many compelling softer woods for them to dine
upon. Tigerwood arrives as a blond colored wood. Do not
let that fool you, once in the sun its beautiful reddish
color comes to life. Tigerwood deckd are superior to composites or PT.
And, it is one of the more beautiful of the hardwoods.
