Why Use Brazilian Hardwood for Your Project?

February 23, 2022 By ,

Are you in the process of an outdoor project renovation? You’ve probably been thinking about which type of wood will fit your projects the best. With all of the different options on the market, it’s hard to decide which type would work for your home. When it comes to your projects, there isn’t a better choice then Brazilian hardwood.

Why should you choose Brazilian hardwood?

While cool, muted grays and traditional browns continue to be popular, homeowners are increasingly interested in emphasizing their personal style. This might mean using wood that has heavy variegation, like tigerwood, or mixing woods to create a two-tone look. Consider using picture-framing and breaker boards with different colors, such as a dark brown and a lighter, honey-brown. For a more dramatic look, use beautiful South Pacific redwood, which is dark reddish-brown.

Take into account the natural weathering that the wood will undergo if you don’t treat it. For example, ipe turns a beautiful silvery grey with age, which would look great accented the beautiful stripes of tigerwood – just make sure to treat the tigerwood to maintain its color.

Stuck on which tropical wood is right for you? We can help!

There is a good reason why tropical hardwoods are the go-to for popular structures such as boardwalks. They are incredibly durable, but how can you choose which wood is the right one for you?

Ipe is one of the most sought after Brazilian hardwoods and best known for one thing; it’s incredible, strong as nails durability. Ipe easily withstands wear-and-tear, has a life expectancy of over 50 years, and is resistant to pests and mold, making it incredibly low maintenance.

Cumaru is a great option for major commercial developments with high traffic. It is an economical choice without sacrificing durability. Similar to ipe, it is a smart choice for residential projects because it is resistant to mold, decay, and mildew, while offering a 50-plus year life span.

If you are looking for a more exotic Brazilian hardwood, tigerwood may be a good choice for your projects. Tigerwood is unlike any other Brazilian hardwood, with its reddish-brown color and dark tiger-like stripes. Unlike many other woods, the deep, rich colors of the wood become more enhanced with prolonged sun exposure.

Maybe you’re looking for a gorgeous hardwood that has beautiful tones of light yellow to a honey golden brown? If so, garapa is the one for you! Resistant to scratches and pests, this tropical hardwood offers many benefits and is sure to add that bright touch to your outdoor space.
