Massaranduba (pronounced Ma-Sa-Ran-Doo-bah) is a hardwood native to South America. It bears the distinction of being one of the most beautiful and hardest woods in the world. One surprising fact about this natural hardwood is how well it performs under heavy load (bending strength) tests. These tests revealed that, as a decking material, Massaranduba is twice as strong as California Redwood and is even stronger than Ipe decking.
Sure, those technical statistics are impressive. But, the real driving force behind the popularity of our Massaranduba decking centers on one thing...that beautiful velvet red look. Many of our customers call us asking for California Redwood only to switch when they see the rich red look of Massaranduba.
Popular in Europe, Massaranduba is a Brazilian redwood that actually lives up to its name. Boasting a 20+ year lifespan, you can enjoy outdoor living with our Massaranduba decking year round without having to worry about constant staining, or heavy duty maintenance. Here are some more reasons why our Massaranduba decking is the right choice for you:
