Brazilian Redwood Decking | Massaranduba Decks
Brazilian Redwood is one of the hardest and most durable species available for use as wood decking.
This species is becoming more difficult to find in North America due to the limited production out of
South America. We keep a small quantity of Brazilian Redwood at our NE 122nd store.
Brazilian Redwood is also known as Massaranduba and Manilkara Bidentata.

Naturally Durable | Extreme Strength and Hardness
Brazilian Redwood is a highly popularized exotic wood in the exterior decking world
particularly due to its warm red to reddish-brown tones and its amazing durability. Much like Ipe, Brazilian Redwood
can be left untreated and it will slowly age to a distinctive grayish-silver. To retain the rich red, Brazilian
Redwood can be oiled or stained using ultraviolet inhibitors and regular cleanings.
The Brazilian Redwood tree grows throughout Central and South America, in countries including Colombia, Suriname,
French Guiana, Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Panama, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Guyana. The tree can reach heights
of up to 150 feet and a diameters of 3 feet. It has a wavy, straight, or interlocked grain and a very fine texture.
With a class A fire rating, Brazilian Redwood decking occupies the same category as steel and concrete.
For the sake of clarity, we will repeat that: Brazilian Redwood, a wood, is as fire resistant as steel or concrete.
Unlike man-made decking alternatives like composite decking,Brazilian Redwood features 10 times the strength.
It can also be used near water without worries of contamination as it contains no harmful chemicals.
