Ipe Decking Sample

IRON WOODS® GARAPA

PREMIUM GARAPA GOLD. Iron Woods® Garapa is a durable, well performing alternative to Ipe. A more affordable option than Ipe, and often chosen by architects, builders, and homeowners for its attractive, naturally rich honey-golden brown color. Garapa’s strong durability, fine grain, and unparalleled performance put it in the forefront of deck designer’s minds.

Iron Woods Garapa slightly darkens upon exposure to ultraviolet light, resulting in a golden-brown hue similar to natural teak wood, eventually weathering to a natural silver patina if left unfinished.

Similar to our other Iron Woodsin performance, Garapa hardwoods can be brought back to its original beauty with regular cleaning and a coat of exotic hardwood oil applied annually, or as desired.
