Ipe and cumaru are popular woods being used by many California designers and homeowners for exterior projects. Hardwood is naturally impervious and will resist both sun exposure as well as to fungus, termites, mold, mildew, and other insects. Besides its resistant properties, hardwood is a beautiful and natural choice for exteriors. It has an A1 fire rating, which is the same as steel and concrete, making it very safe and stable. If you are looking for a particular color deck, Brazilian Lumber can help you find the ideal wood species for you. Ipe wood has a brown coloring, cumaru a reddish tone, garapa a golden color. All hardwood must be sealed and oiled periodically in order to maintain the original color.

“Going green” when building is a trend that is ever more popular, especially in Los Angeles. The demand for hardwood is high in California, which means it responsibly sourced hardwood is harder to find. At Brazilian Lumber we are committed to bringing customers only hardwoods sourced from well-managed forests. What is a responsibly managed forest? One where the environment and forest-dependent communities are preserved and benefit economically. We follow strict protocols and selection processes that are in line with the each of IBAMA’s (Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources which in Portuguese is Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente e dos Recursos Naturais Renováveis) requirements for harvesting companies. This means that all governmental fees and taxes are covered including the fees for forestry exploring social tributes, goods taxation, and environmental and labor duties and tributes. In addition to these legal proceedings, all hardwood sourced must be approved by the Sustainable Forest Management Plan (Plano de Manejo Florestal Sustentável – PMFS), it must have an Annual Operational Plan (Plano Operacional Anual – POA) and an Operating Authorization (Autorização de Exploração – AUTEX). This ensures accountability and legality, which in turn means only mature and dead trees are selected by forestry managers who strictly control which forestry concessions are used and which are preserved until they are ready. This allows the preservation of young trees and all the biodiversity that lives in the forest.
All our wood is LACEY Act compliant and we have (Forest Stewardship Council) wood available as well. We are involved in the supply chain so as to have all certifications required and see to it that best practices are implemented.
By choosing Brazilian Lumber’s hardwood options, you can contribute to more green buildings, with an inferior impact on the environment than standard buildings. Also, as hardwood is a natural product, once its lifespan is over it can either be reused or biodegrade, meaning it will never fill up landfills, release toxins into the water supply or cause harm to the soil.
