Garapa Decking - Garapa Deck Specifications: 

Garapa is also known as Brazilian Oak. These deck boards are fine grained yellow timber. You may find streaks of brown in them. After exposure to the sun, they become a beautiful russet golden brown color. This stuff is beautiful!

Garapa Decking is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attack. This type of decking offers a 25+ year lifespan without preservatives. Our Brazilian hardwood is responsibly harvested from managed forest to provide a truly renewable resource. Unlike composite, Garapa is naturally biodegradable and does not clog landfills. It is comparable to Ipe and is available at a fraction of the cost. We ship our decking products direct to your home or job site.

Garapa Decking Characteristics:  Garapa (Brazilian Oak) is honey-yellow with a slight ribbon aspect. Like all wood, Garapa will turn gray unless protected by a UV Inhibitor finish. The grain of this wood is irregular, interlocked and has a medium texture.

Decking Color: The color of Garapa is Medium Brown - can be darkened with a tinted finisher (see below) As with all hardwood, there will be variations in color and grain which add to the individual character.

Garapa Decking Hardness: Janka hardness: 2280 lb – harder than Hard Maple (Janka 1450) and Oak (Janka 1360)

Garapa Decking Durability: A sturdy wood decking such as this is moderately durable to termites and fungus. Garapa hardness provides natural scratch resistance making it a perfect wood for exterior decking.

Garapa Decking Preservation: None Necessary! This decking will become light brown with age. A finisher with UV blocking will retain the beautiful Honey color.

Our Garapa decking is reliably harvested from the forest to provide you a renewable resource. Garapa is as similar to Ipe and is available at a reasonable cost. We ship our decking products to your home or job site. So, if you are looking for Brazilian hardwood decking, look no further! Call us at 352-508-4990 to know the difference.
