Garapa Hardwood is one of the fine woods for decking. You can use Garapa lumber for nearly any sort of outdoor woodworking project due to its sturdiness and resistance to extreme weather conditions.
In terms of workability, Garapa Hardwood is quite bendy no matter its excessive density. Also, this hardwood is resistant to water, decay, and mold. It is widely used for patios and lawn decking.
The Garapa deck has a flexural strength of 12,900 psi. This means that this wood spans greater distances with very little deflection. With less deflection, deck boards gain more stability.
Another benefit of using Garapa lumber is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time looking after it. Hardwoods are usually very easy to care for. Most of the time, all they need is a little soap and water to keep them in top condition.
At Brazilian Lumber, we also offer other hardwood species, all the hardware you need for the installation process, artificial turf & ivy, and interior flooring. Please let us know if you need help locating the instructions or return policies, and we will readily assist you.
