    THE POPULAR CHOICE AMONG HOMEOWNERS

    Imagine a wood that doesn’t require constant chemical treatments or maintenance to withstand mold and decay. Now also imagine a golden color that has gained popularity in modern architecture by being able to elevate the exterior of any home? Stop imagining, you found it.

    What’s to love about Garapa

    • The natural resistance to rot, decay, and insects.

    • The long lifespan of over 25 years, leaving you with a project you can be proud of for years to come.

    • It’s generally easy to work with. Glues and finishes well.

    • The natural resistance to scratches and slips for those who like to walk barefoot outside.

    • It is less prone to splintering than softwoods when properly maintained.

    • The great value for those seeking low-cost lumber that is exceptionally strong and equally hard.

    • Peace of mind knowing its fire resistance is near that of steel.

    Keep an eye on

    • Its density and interlocking grain may make it somewhat difficult to work with.

    • It requires well-sharpened tools but can be sawed, planed, turned, and molded.

    • Due to its hardness, it may be resistant to nailing and screwing, however, it can be easily glued.
