Cumaru is an extremely dense and durable hardwood, that is naturally resistant to insect and fungal attack.
Cumaru is renowned for its outstanding colouration. Whilst boards tend to range from light brown through to dark honey, sparks of orange and dark golden brown can also feature. When the different shades are fitted together, an impressive, contemporary, rich, dark and unique deck is achieved. This colour variation is widely sought after.
Cumaru like many other species can be prone to worm hole and Raised Grain which are natural defects and acceptable within grading. If, however, you are you are looking for a more uniform finish, we recommend one of our other timbers.
Whilst Cumaru is an extremely stable hardwood, we recommend that you leave a minimum 4mm gap between each board (5-6mm for 145mm wide boards). Being a natural product there will be some expansion and shrinkage in certain climates, but this is not likely to be noticed by the human eye.
Please note that as hardwood specialists, we do not stock softwood for sub-frames. We recommend that you source this from a standard timber merchant. We recommend sealing the cut ends of your boards with an end grain sealer (beeswax works beautifully).
The most common finish for any hardwood deck. This product contains UV filters to delay the silvering process that strong sunlight causes in any hardwood. Balau can be fitted using stainless steel deck screws (always pre-drill hardwoods) and using hidden fixing systems *boards edge grooved to accept hidden fixings*
