Tigerwood Brazilian Hardwood Decking

Why buy Tigerwood Decking? Tigerwood has a unique, 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 commercial project.

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. Tigerwood floor cabana
