One of the charms of Garapa decking wood is its extraordinary endurance. You won’t need to seal Garapa wood because of its exceptional density, which makes it highly rot-resistant. However, if you want to preserve the golden hue, you might want to.

Termites and carpenter ants won’t ever have to worry about tunneling into it because of its great pest resistance. If you have a pool in your backyard, you will enjoy how resistant Garapa is to decay. The grain is so densely packed that nothing can pierce it, allowing it to last for years. Many decks eventually need to be refinished, particularly those that are not built of hardwood. Given that the entire deck would need to be sanded, stained, and resealed, this could be problematic. However, Garapa wood can endure for many years with little upkeep.

Garapa.co.za supplies you with all you need to build your own dream deck. With prices ranging from R7,500-R112,500 per m², everyone’s budget is accounted for.
