massaranduba decking
Advantage Massaranduba Decking™ gives you beauty & robust strength in one package.

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.

See for yourself how Massaranduba compares to Redwood decking.

Beware of Shady Sellers

Some unscrupulous lumber companies charge hidden extra fees, ship low-grade material, and source their wood from unethical mills. Here are some questions to ask when buying your lumber:

  • Where is the material shipping from?
  • Has the seller actually seen the wood they're selling?
  • Can you visit their warehouse?

Our lumber is sustainably sourced directly from well managed forest and custom milled with our own machinery. We have a huge inventory that you’re welcome to visit any time, and we work with the wood ourselves, so we can guarantee its quality. We don’t charge extra insurance or packaging fees—we cover those for you!

In short, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Learn more about how to avoid bad lumber companies.
