Brazilian hardwood is beautiful, and comes in a gorgeous array of colors and species (see below). Every deck will have its own unique aesthetics, and there’s really nothing quite like it. It’s also natural and chemical-free, and our RealWood™ certification ensures that it has been sourced with a focus on sustainability and responsible forestry.
Strength & Durability
Brazilian hardwood decks are incredibly strong, and therefore durable. During the lifespan of one deck made from high quality Brazilian hardwoods, an average homeowner would have needed four or more pine or composite decks.
Consider that Ipe decking has a Janka hardness rating six times greater than pine, and three to four times greater than composite-plastic decks, while having the Class A fire rating of concrete.
