It’s a great time of year to build or re-do your outside deck. The sun is out, the summer breeze is blowing and you can get your deck done in no time at all.
We offer one of the best wood you can use for your deck. What is one of the best woods’ name? Cumaru wood.
We are going to give you the eight beneficial reasons it works so well on your decking needs.
In general, Cumaru wood offers style and durability. What’s more, this wood is affordable and easy to lay as you build or re-do your deck.
Now we are going to get down to the specifics of why you need to know more about this one-of-a-kind decking wood.
Cumaru wood is also known as Brazilian Teak wood. Cumaru wood comes in Yellow and Red. Although the red version of this wood is what we use the most for decking purposes.
We know you may be used to hearing about Ipe’s wood for decking jobs and it is a very good wood to use for that purpose.
However, Cumaru wood takes less time to produce and is two-thirds the price of Ipe’s wood. That is a big incentive to offer for deck builders.
We like letting our customers know they may need to apply a careful kiln to the drying process with the wood. This helps prevent any shrinkage which may occur during dry seasons.
The rich red color of Cumaru wood, when used for decking, stands out because of its color and density.
This elegant wood has all the beauty of a hardwood floor you would use in an interior space. Except this beautiful wood is excellent outside because it is durable and weather-resistant.
It can outlive many of the decking alternative woods like Pine, Cedar, Redwood or Douglas Fir.
The durability factor in this special deck wood is because it is a high-density hardwood native to the northern parts of South America.
The graining of the wood gives it a Brazilian Teak finished appearance. This wood is resistant to insects and has a long-lasting deck life.
One of the greatest benefits it offers is its price which is competitive with other decking wood options. Even deck options which include composite decking. That makes this Cumaru wood one our customers love to use on their planned deck jobs.
If you decide to use this wood for your decking projects we are going to give you the eight benefits it will bring you. They are;
- This type of wood resists rot. This type of wood also has long-life and durability built into it. It is decay resistant and has excellent weathering properties.
- This wood is hard and strong. It has excellent longevity due to it being so stiff and firm.
- It is hard to beat using Cumaru wood for your decking when you compare prices. The wood is inexpensive when it is imported and consistently offers low prices.
- Cumaru wood is diffuse-porous. It has narrow rays which are fairly close together. It offers heartwood mineral components which are confluent. It is also a large pore wood with no set arrangement.
- Cumaru is also known as Brazilian teak and Tonka Bean. This is because the tree is cultivated sometimes for its vanilla-cinnamon scented seed. Which also means as you are working on your deck project you receive faint vanilla or cinnamon-like aroma.
- The wood is dense and has interlocked grain. This helps make it strong and sturdy. But it also means pre-boring may be necessary when screwing or nailing the wood.
- The wood is rich, dramatic and beautiful to look at. There are no two pieces of Cumaru decking exactly alike. This helps make your deck look sophisticated and unique at the same time.
- This special wood has unique measurements. It is 3540lbs with a density of 1.07g/cm3 on the Janka hardness scale. This makes it over three times harder than the typical teak wood used in a lot of decking projects. It has double the strength of oak decking.
Marketing started for tropical hardwoods in the United States for decking and cabinetry about 2006.
Cumaru wood achieved a 2-3% growth rate per year by 2010 because of the woods’ natural durability and aesthetics.
This unique decking wood markets to consumers for their decking projects because it offers high quality with low maintenance. Also because it is a tropical hardwood it is very durable as well.
Consumers report they select Cumaru wood for their decking projects, in part, because the wood is also insect and decay-resistant.
Cumaru wood has five measured benefits which distributors, customers, and producers agree upon. They are;
- 86% prefer this type of wood because of its durability
- 71% prefer this type of wood because of its low-maintenance
- 71% prefer this type of wood because of its strength
- 57% prefer this type of wood because of its biodegradation qualities
Sometimes there is a wood which exceeds industry standards. Cumaru is that wood.
If Cumaru wood comes in second place to any other wood it is Ipe wood. It is the decking wood most preferred by consumers.
For the most part, this is because of its sturdiness and suitability for various environments. Ipe needs very little drying and has a 12-15% moisture content.
It is the preferred wood most of the time for restaurants, boardwalks, businesses, and homes which need deck wood.
Ipe wood or Cumaru wood are both are very good for any decking project. While Cumaru wood cannot beat Ipe wood in most categories it is still a very durable and strong wood.
