What is Cumaru Decking ?
Cumaru wood, also known as Brazilian Teak or Golden Teak, is a naturally durable Brazilian timber with a density similar to Ipe. Its consistent golden brown color and moderate cost make it an attractive alternate to more expensive hardwoods such as Teak or Ipe. Cumaru Decking is resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications such as decking. Cumaru Decking not only lasts a long time, but has the beauty of an interior hardwood. It outlasts other popular wood decking species such as treated Pine, Cedar, Redwood and Douglas Fir.
eDeck.com stocks standards Cumaru Decking and Supplies (Brazilian Teak) , and offers custom millwork for special profiles or sizes. Cumaru deck facing is partially air-dried (AD), and then kiln-dried (KD) to approximately 15% moisture content for stability. eDeck.com also stocks all the accessories – fasteners, sealers, cleaners, and finishes – to complete your deck.
Our Cumaru Decking is kiln-dried to limit shrinking and checking. If Cumaru wood is allowed to age, it will turn to a silver/gray patina over time. Its color can be brought back with the use of a deck cleaner/brightening system and application of a hardwood finish specifically formulated for exotic hardwoods, such as Messmer’s UV Plus Finish.
