Comparing Decking Materials: Ipe, Teak, Cumaru, Garapa, Massaranduba, Treated, Cedar, Redwood, and Composites.

We know that there is a lot of information out there to digest when it comes to understanding which type of wood is best for your project. We wanted to provide a comparison of the specs and colors of the woods that we carry at, so you can see it all in one place. Once you understand the specs of all the woods using a tropical hardwood seems even more attractive.

Below are the Janka Hardness, Bending Strength, and Average Density for all of our decking woods and their major competitors. It also includes a basic cost guide, and, of course, the cut of wood and length needed will affect pricing.  This can help you compare each species and how each cut of wood is priced, including Ipe Decking, Garapa Decking, Massaranduba Decking, and Cumaru Decking.

We are a high volume buyer so we can provide you the most competitive pricing for all of your decking needs. Contact us today for a quote or if you have any questions!
