Available Solid Hardwood Species:

Ipe Hardwood Plank Flooring

Ipe Decking (Brazilian Walnut) is olive-brown to dark-brown in color. Ipe is one of the hardest and most durable woods found anywhere in the world. A fantastic choice for residential decking and siding, as well as commercial applications due to its strength and longevity.

Tigerwood Hardwood Plank Flooring

Tigerwood decking is orange-brown, but will darken and display deeper, reddish hues over time when used outdoors. That unique orange tint makes Tigerwood hardwood a one of a kind choice for interior home projects as well.

Garapa Hardwood Plank Flooring

Garapa decking is a blonde or wheat-brown which will also darken and become an amber-tinted brown over time. Garapa wood is used for everything from flooring to decking to cabinet work and heavy carpentry applications -- even ship building.

Cumaru Hardwood Plank Flooring

Cumaru Rosa (Red) hardwood is a reddish brown to deep, cherry red, with beautiful grain patterns. Strength is nearly comparable to Ipe's legendary hardness rating.

Massaranduba Hardwood Plank Flooring

Massaranduba (Brazilian Redwood) is a beautiful plum red tinted to reddish-brown color. It's known for a lack of visible knots, and a consistent grain with subtle demarcation partially due to the dark, deep color.

Jatoba Hardwood Plank Flooring

Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) hardwood is a tan or even pinkish brown after being freshly milled, but will quickly display deep red hues. It's most popular for indoor flooring, but is also a high quality choice for beautiful decking as well.

Purple Heart Flooring

Purpleheart hardwood decking lumber is resistant to insect attack and decay. It is one of the densest woods on the planet and is VERY durable. Purple Heart hard wood grows in many areas of South America and is easily sustainable. The Purple Heart tree is large, attaining heights of 100 to 150 feet, with diameters of 36 - 60 inches.

Genuine hardwood plank flooring made from responsibly harvested South American hardwood is the best investment to ensure a lifetime of the most beautiful flooring available anywhere.
