Tropical hardwoods have been highly desirable as decking material because of their high density and resistance to damage from insects and molds as well as their beautiful color and textures.
Hardwood decks can be stained with a penetrating oil finish to maintain the deep color. We carry the penetrating stains specially made for hardwood.
Alternately you can leave your deck to weather naturally to a silver grey. Allowing the wood to patina will not affect the durability of your tropical hardwood deck. Occassional power washing and regular sweeping are all that are needed to maintain your deck.
All our hardwoods are selectively harvested by responsible foresters following sustainable forestry guidelines.
