Massaranduba Decking, a Boon for Builders

Advantage Trim & Lumber is delighted to declare the addition of Massaranduba decking to their product line. Massaranduba, commonly known as Brazilian Redwood is preferred by most of the European deck designers due to its excellent durability and luxuriant color. Massaranduba is more durable than teak, and proves to be an excellent choice for deck construction.

The General Manager of Advantage Trim & Lumber Chris Foreman has stated that the reddish color of Redwood or Cedar is preferred by many. However, there is a growing demand for tough and durable materials for deck designing. Hence, the company provides durable, attractive and arty Massaranduba to its customers, minimizing the utilization of expensive composites.

Massaranduba originated in South America, and is one of the hardest woods. This Brazilian redwood performs well under heavy load bending strength tests, demonstrating its strength. These tests proved Massaranduba to be doubly stronger than California Redwood and much stronger than Ipe decking.

Massaranduba excels redwood in terms of durability and strength, which is demonstated through a survey of apples-to-apples comparison between Redwood and Massaranduba. The results clearly defined that homeowners can be considerably benefited by this exotic decking.

The significant features of Massaranduba decking from Advantage Trim & Lumber include excellent bending strength for maximum durability, low maintenance with a lifespan of over 20 years, priced comparable with Ipe and composites, 100% natural and chemical free material, knot free, anti-slip surface offers extra slip resistance, resistant to rot, mold, and fungal decay, collected from managed forests, and readily available for global market.
