What is Garapa ?
Garapa also known as Brazilian Ash , is an outstanding choice for exterior wood work including siding and decking. Lighter in color than Ipe and Massaranduba, Garapa Decking is a beautiful honey-toned Brazilian hardwood that is extremely durable with low maintenance. It typically has fine, straight grain with some pieces having a ribbon grain that give your deck a modern warm appearance.
Garapa (apuleia leiocarpa) siding is kiln-dried and “clear” grade – free of knots and sap. This dense exotic South American hardwood is a great choice for siding and exterior applications because it is resistant to rot, decay, splinters and scratches. With proper care and maintenance, expect decades of enjoyment out of your Garapa siding.
As the wood naturally weathers, it takes on a light silver/gray patina, which means there is no need to apply stains or sealers annually if you want minimal maintenance.
Garapa Siding is extremely popular in modern architecture and is a cost effective alternative to Ipe or Teak Siding. It really is a great deal when you compare the price to its durability compared to other options.
