We stock Garapa for your DIY Project

Garapa wood is frequently used for outdoor projects because to its excellent workability, robustness, and long-lasting nature. Its honey yellow colouring is another benefit. When used on external projects and constructions, Garapa hardwood is substantially more weather resistant than oak despite being around 1.5 times harder. Garapa decking is utilised for docks, piers, bridges, and walkways in addition to the well-known and popular use of Garapa wood for decks.

Garapa hardwood has become an all-natural substitute for synthetic decking materials thanks to its incredible cost, which has also contributed to the wood’s rapid rise in popularity. Garapa decking actually costs less than almost all composite and synthetic decking materials, despite being harder and stronger than composite decking. Garapa wood is robust, durable, and resistant enough to be utilized for boardwalks and other high traffic places such as marinas and public dock areas, even though it may not be quite as hard as some other high density hardwoods.

  • Stronger and harder than oak
  • Surprisingly  affordable
  • Less costly than plastic and synthetic decking
  • Sustainably harvested all natural wood
