    GIFTED FOR ACHIEVEMENT

    You simply know when you’re standing on a board of Cumaru. An exceptional hardwood, with endless qualities, it is considered one of the best species of lumber for exterior home renovation projects. Its strength also makes it a preferred wood for flooring, cabinetry, furniture, and more.

    What’s to love about Cumaru

    • Its excellent durability makes it very resistant to decay.


    • The long lifespan of over 25 years.

    • Its stiffness, strength, and extreme hardness make an ideal choice for a multitude of different projects.

    • Its resistance to insects, rot, and fungi makes it an excellent choice for outdoor use.

    • Its great value for those seeking low-cost lumber with excellent strength and hardness properties.

    • The immense peace of mind knowing that Cumaru has a Class A rating for fire resistance that is comparable to that of steel and concrete.

    • If all of that isn’t convincing enough, Cumaru typically has a scent of cinnamon and vanilla when being worked on.

    Keep an eye on

    • May be difficult to work with due to its density and interlocking grain.

    • Since Cumaru contains silica, it will have a moderate dulling effect on cutting tools.

    • As it has a naturally high oil content, it may be difficult to glue.

    • It will maintain its structural integrity as it ages, and its color will gradually change to a lustrous silver-grey if left untreated

    “Cumaru decks provide a dramatic and beautiful grain variation. You couldn't expect to see the same look in two pieces of Cumarú decks. Stylistically, the Cumarú deck blends seamlessly into any setting, be it modern, traditional, or rustic.”
