Advantage Lumber, LLC is proud to announce the addition of Cumaru to their line of exotic decking. With the cost of ipe and other hardwoods rising rapidly due to supply constraints and high demand, the addition of this Brazilian Teak to the marketplace gives architects and planners a decking material that is both durable and more accessible. With access to a hardwood decking that rivals the strength of ipe and offers more color variance, homeowners can build with confidence without settling for lesser grade materials.
According to Sales Manager Jon Fletcher, “Since we started offering Cumaru, contractors and builders have been saying it couldn’t come at a better time. People have heard countless times how amazing ipe is. When they realize that either they can’t get it, or that it costs too much, they previously had to settle for decking material that was not as strong or as durable. Now, with Cumaru, these homeowners can build decks that are extremely strong and very beautiful. In fact, there are some great reasons why Cumaru is a better buy than ipe decking.” With so many marketing budgets having been dedicated to ipe couple with the abundance of Cumaru
Cumaru is a better value than ipe decking thanks to these benefits:
- Great color variety – Cumaru can come in reddish brown or golden brown
- Mold and insect resistance that is on par with ipe
- A more abundant supply for fast order and shipments
- More affordable per lineal foot than ipe
