Massaranduba is one of the hardest and most durable timber species in the world. It is considered a cost-effective substitute for Ipe decking in some applications. With a reddish brown hue and straight grain, it has been nicknamed “Brazilian Redwood.” It is naturally durable and resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications. It not only lasts a long time, but has the beauty of an interior hardwood. Massaranduba is another popular natural alternative to PVC or composite products. It outlasts other popular wood decking species such as treated Pine, Cedar, American Redwood and Douglas Fir.
Thompson Mahogany stocks Massaranduba decking (Brazilian Redwood) as well as other parts to complete a deck, including: joists, stringers, treads, risers, skirting, railings and posts. We also mill tongue-and-groove (T&G) profiles, and offer custom millwork for special profiles or sizes. Massaranduba deck facing is partially air-dried (AD), and then kiln-dried (KD) to approximately 15% moisture content for stability. Thompson Mahogany also stocks all the accessories – fasteners, sealers, cleaners, and finishes – to complete your deck.
