Tigerwood Color: Golden brown to reddish-brown with irregular black and brown streaks
Tigerwood is unlike any other Brazilian hardwood, with its reddish-brown color dark tiger-like stripes. Inspire and transform any outdoor living space while adding unique flair to decks and other products.
Tigerwood hardwood decking is low maintenance and does not require chemical treatments like other decking materials. In fact, with sun exposure over time, the rich, deep colors of the wood become even more enhanced. We do recommend using a deck oil twice a year for the first few years, then every other year to keep your deck looking newer longer.
This durable, exotic hardwood is the third hardest of the Brazilian hardwoods and naturally resistant to rot and decay, with a typical lifespan of 50+ years.
