Kiln-Dried Makes All the Difference

All hardwoods need time to acclimate to their new environments, and the process makes all the difference in how long your deck will last without warping or twisting. That's why our Cumaru is kiln-dried instead of air-dried, ensuring our product will last longer and remain stable for the life of the project.

Decking & Porch Flooring

Cumaru is a great choice for decking and porch flooring when looking for an Ipe-alternative. Unlike the popular Ipe, Cumaru has a more modest price that fits in almost any budget. The similarities in look and strength to Ipe make Cumaru a natural choice for the savvy, budget-conscious consumer.
