Garapa

Hailing from South America, this hardwood has a light color similar to Clear Cedar. Garapa isn't quite as dense as Ipe, but what it lacks in density this product makes up for in consistency, beauty, and affordability.

Decking & Porch Flooring

Garapa is great for decking and porch flooring because it is naturally resistant to the primary causes of decay and rot, which include insects and harsh climates. But, using a hardwood product doesn't mean keeping the color you fell in love with has to be a challenge. By applying a UV inhibiting oil once a year Garapa will stay as beautiful as the day it was installed. No need to wander a big home improvement store looking for the right product, we have what you need in stock!
