Cumaru Decking

Cumaru Decking: is a beautiful Bolivian & Brazilian kiln dried hardwood.
Cumaru is almost 3 times harder than Oak with an approximate 80 year life expectancy and is naturally resistant to insects, mold and mildew. Cumaru is known as Brazilian Teak. This Cumaru is a beautiful mixed Cumaru. The colors consist of Champagne Cumaru (yellowish brown), medium honey brown and Rosa (reddish color). Seepicture above, they blend beautifully together
Once your deck is installed, you do not have to do anything to your Cumaru deck for it to last for years but it will turn to a silvery-gray color if you do not apply a UV Finisher made for Hardwoods.
Cumaru (aka Brazilian Teak, Dipteryx Odorata, Almendrillo, Tonka, and Tonquin Bean) creates that carefree, inviting outdoor space you crave. When you step onto a deck made of Cumaru, you'll be presented with a rich display of golden tan to reddish brown colors and dark grain accents. Cumaru is an exotic hardwood you can count on because it naturally resists rot, decay and insect attack. Check out how Cumaru compares to ipe, teak, and composite decking.
Cumaru decking is the second hardest decking we sell. In Brazil, Cumaru is used in mansions, five-star hotels and major commercial projects. It has a 50+ year lifespan without preservatives! Our Cumaru decking is responsibly harvested from managed forests to provide a truly renewable resource. Cumaru has many benefits over teak and is available at a fraction of the cost. We ship our Cumaru decking products direct to your home or job site.
