Want a hardwood that lives up to the name "exotic"? Look no further that the bold and elegant striping of tigerwood. Like its namesake, tigerwood combines beauty and strength for an unbeatable decking product. The illusive tigerwood can be hard to find, luckily we carry this hardwood in stock and ready to deliver.
THIS TIGER HAS THICK SKIN
Although not as dense as ipe, tigerwood is still strong enough to resist scratching and last 25 years or more. Using the Janka Hardness Test, we can see tigerwood is up to six times harder than decking products like cedar, redwood, and southern yellow pine. This hardwood is going to roar when it comes to wear and tear. If you want beauty and brawn, go with tigerwood.
A NATURAL LOVE FOR THE WILD
Tigerwood is naturally resistant to mold, rot, and decay, making it the perfect choice for outdoor use. Even in harsh climates, tigerwood maintains its integrity against rain, snow, heat, humidity and anything else mother nature throws at it.
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 all our tigerwood is kiln-dried instead of air-dried, ensuring our product will last longer and remain stable for the life of the project.
HELP YOUR TIGERWOOD KEEP IT'S STRIPES
The reason most choose tigerwood is for the beautiful grain and incredible hardness of the boards. In order to tame this tigerwood for your project, make sure you pre-drill your holes and use the right hardware. And, to keep your project looking like the day it was installed, you can use a special penetrating oil. Not sure what you need? TimberTown carries all the products you need in stock!
A SPECIES THAT WON'T GO EXTINCT
Through our partnership with Overseas Hardwood Company (OHC) we have a distinct advantage over other hardwood suppliers. That's because OHC sends a hardwoods buyer to Brazil periodically to inspect the mills and forests. This gives us control over the quality and sustainability of our tigerwood products. As one of the few exotic hardwood suppliers who purchases directly from the source, we can stand behind our product with confidence.
