Garapa hardwood siding finishing options.  Garapa siding is real wood, and it performs so well, it can be finished or allowed to weather. Garapa hardwood siding has rich natural golden tones that can be enhanced (or darkened) with a variety of different finishes. Or, Garapa siding can be allowed to "silver out" to a natural pale gray patina over time.  Whether you prefer to maintain the 'like new wood' appearance of Garapa siding, or the silvery look, the choice is yours.  For more information about your finish options, DOWNLOAD "HOW WOODS WEATHER GUIDE"
