Sometimes you just can't beat Mother Nature. Case in point: Tigerwood (also known as Brazilian Koa, Goncalo Alves or Zorrowood). Its trademark striped patterns make this South American hardwood one of a kind. Combine that with its durability, and you can understand why Tigerwood decking has found favor among homeowners with discriminating standards.
A Tiger Tale
Why do they call it "Tigerwood"? Because its reddish/orange hues are streaked with tiger-like stripes of black and brown. With exposure to sunlight, Tigerwood decking darkens to a slightly redder tone over time. It's a gorgeous transformation that only enhances the wood's exotic beauty. Tigerwood decking also delivers a level of performance that you rarely find in wood products. Exponentially harder and denser than red oak, it resists insects, warping, rotting, splintering and twisting — without any preservatives. No matter how heavy the foot traffic or inclement the weather, you can count on your Tigerwood decking to last 25 years and beyond.
