Brazilian Cumaru – Comparable to Teak, with Better Qualities

Brazilian Cumaru Hardwood Decking
Cumaru provides the perfect foundation to your outdoor deck.

Cumaru is a Brazilian hardwood with more benefits than Teak.


  • Is more affordable than teak, ipe, and synthetic plastic decking
  • Gives you more color variety than teak and ipe with a mix of reddish brown and golden hues
  • Is an excellent all-weather hardwood that can last well over 50 years
  • Does not need constant, if any, maintenance at all
  • Offers great slip resistance and won’t heat up like plastic composite decking
  • Is as durable as it is beautiful

As you can see from the picture above, a Cumaru deck also offers you the chance to really give your outdoor pool deck a bold look. With a Janka hardness rating of 3540, Cumaru is comparable to ipe in terms of strength. It’s also a lot more eco-friendly than many of the other teak options out there. Our selection of Cumaru decking has originated from mills in South America that practice sustainable forestry and adhere to local and international trade laws such as the LACEY Act.
