Massaranduba decking wood is one of the hardest and most durable timber species in the world. It is considered a cost-effective substitute for Ipe decking in some applications. With a reddish-brown hue and straight grain, it has been nicknamed “Brazilian Redwood.” It is naturally durable and resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications. It not only lasts a long time, but has the beauty of an interior hardwood. Massaranduba decking is another popular natural alternative to PVC or composite products. It outlasts other popular wood decking species such as treated Pine, Cedar, American Redwood and Douglas Fir.
