Cumaru Wood - Outdoor Project Ideas

When you think about the remarkable performance characteristics of Cumaru hardwood, there is no wonder why Cumaru is becoming such a popular option for outdoor projects of all types.  Then, when you consider the affordable pricing, rich coloration and exotic graining of Cumaru wood, you get a much better idea of why so many architects, builders and owners are using Cumaru as their outdoor wood species of choice.  Cumaru is a high density, sustainably harvested hardwood building material that looks great and lasts extremely well outdoors.

Cumaru decking is frequently used for residential decks, walkways and porches by homeowners and builders alike.  Cumaru lumber is often selected for boardwalks and other high traffic areas that require a hard, high density exterior building material that looks beautiful and can take a beating.  During Hurricane/Super Storm Sandy for example, the areas of the Coney Island boardwalk that were replaced with Cumaru decking several years before the storm hit, still look terrific and perform exceptionally well, despite the extreme conditions and tremendous abuse they receive every day.
