Garapa Hardwood Decking
Garapa is a premium hardwood decking material from Brazil. It is very similar to Ipe Decking in terms of its qualities and performance, but unlike Ipe it has a light golden color, similar to Clear Western Red Cedar. Garapa has been on the North American market for over a decade and has a proven track record as a great natural wood deck product that performs exceptionally well in our cold Toronto climate.
Deckstoronto is a direct importer of Garapa Decking from Brazil. The density of the Garapa Decking is much higher than that of Cedar or Pressure Treated, but it is not quite as dense as the Ipe Decking. Garapa decking will last for over 25 years and it is naturally resistant to rot, decay or termite attack. What also makes Garapa a desirable choice for a decking material is its stability and resistance to cracking, warping and splintering.
All Garapa Decking that we supply comes from environmentally managed forests in Brazil and we ensure that all of our suppliers are actively engaged in Tropical Forest Re-planting as well as making investments into their local communities.
There are several species of hardwood decking from Brazil, such as Ipe decking, Cumaru Decking, Masaranduba Decking, Tigerwood Decking. Having extensively examined the performance of all of these species in the Toronto area, we have determined that the Ipe Decking, Cumaru Decking and Garapa Decking are the best performing hardwood decking materials for our climate. Cumaru decking is very similar in appearance to Ipe Decking, its only advantage over Ipe is price. The reason Deckstoronto decided to focus on Garapa decking is because not only it provides cost savings over the Ipe Decking, but it is also different in appearance and we find some clients are in a market for a well performing, light color decking material.
The profiles of Garapa that we carry are nominal 5/4x6 and 5/4x4. The actual thickness of these boards is 21 mm which is approximately 7/8”. The widths of these profiles are 140 mm and 89 mm respectively. The lengths that we carry range from 7’ to 20’. All profiles are available grooved (for surface installation with clips) and non-grooved for the edges of the deck platform and stair risers.
