How many times have you heard about the hardwoods Ipe and Cumaru? Two very good species that give the rich brown tones buyers do like. Ipe is the better known species, and is one of the hardest woods in the world, with a nickname like Ironwood I don’t need to add more. Its strength is great and will add value to any home.
Cumaru is very close to Ipe in hardness and durability also, and again will give years, or decades, of service.
The species will not give off splinters or slivers, with some UV water repellent sealer the woods will keep their color tones for years. Performance wise for decking both are excellent hardwoods. Check them out.
