BEAUTIFUL AND CONTRASTING, GIVING YOU THE STRIPING LOOK YOU ARE GOING FOR!
Tigerwood (a.k.a. Goncalo Alves) is one of the finest quality hardwoods available that features a unique light golden-brown to reddish-brown coloring with exotic black and brown streaks. Tigerwood is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot and decay, is the third hardest decking we sell, and offers a 30+ year lifespan without preservatives!

-Exotic, but not overpriced
-Color changes over time
-Grows in rainforests
-Don't try it yourself;
Tigerwood is hard. Therefore, it will not be a DIY project for many people. You’ll need professional tools such as saws with carbon-tipped blades and carbide bit drills to create the necessary pre-drilled holes for nails and screws. It also isn’t easy to glue because of the natural oils in the wood.
Tips to Maintain Tigerwood Flooring and Decking
Caring for Tigerwood Flooring
Caring for tigerwood flooring is relatively easy. There are just a few things you should keep in mind…
Keep tigerwood flooring clean. Be sure to vacuum or sweep up any visible dust or dirt.
Clean up liquid spills immediately.
Use rugs in areas with a lot of foot traffic.
Use felt pads under furniture legs.
Keep your pet’s nails short.
Avoid rugs with a rubber backing as they can cause the area underneath them to fade.
Try to avoid having the sun beat down on the same area of the floor every day.
Rearrange your furniture periodically so the tigerwood floor can change color (i.e., age) consistently.
