Why Choose Hardwood Decking?Beauty:
Brazilian hardwood decking offers a variety of color, design and texture choices. Like snowflakes there are no two decks alike. All Brazilian hardwood has the beauty that only nature can design.Durability:
Other decking materials cannot last as long as Brazilian hardwoods. Pressure-treated pine is injected with chemicals in an attempt to provide the insect repelling characteristics provided by nature in Brazilian woods. The chemical treated wood cannot be burned as it will release potentially toxic smoke. Years from now, these same chemicals may also prove to pollute our landfills.Comparison:
Composite decking is man-made material that combines wood and plastic and is marked with a checkered history of lawsuits due to lack of colorfastness. This plastic material cannot be recycled and may serve to choke our landfills with non bio-degradable refuse.Maintenance Free:
No maintenance is required. Natural color softening over time can be reduced by applying deck oil periodically.Value:
The overall value of Brazilian hardwood decking is very high when compared to composite or pressure treated pine (P/T). These materials need to be replaced at least FOUR times during the lifetime of Brazilian hardwood decking.
