With so many options on the market of hard and soft wood decking, it can be a challenge to pick the one that is just right for you, your budget and lifestyle.
While researching decking options, it is important to realize that there are many, many different grades, as well as growing areas within any wood species. The differences in grades, as well as where the wood is grown, milled and graded, will affect your decking price, availability, and most importantly the performance.
For example, within the “cedar” deck board market, there are many grades, grading standards, as well as growing regions within the Pacific Northwest where Western Red Cedar and Alaskan Yellow Cedar are grown, which directly affects performance. Decking cut from premium, clear, mature, coastal grown, Western Red Cedar will out perform decking manufactured from inland grown knotty Cedar boards time and time again. The same is also true for exotic hardwood decking milled and graded from other countries, including Ipe and Mahogany, two very popular hardwoods that are sold under a variety of brand names, all graded to different brand standards.
At Cedar Country, we only stock Kayu® Mahogany Batu and Golden Balau “Mahogany” hardwood decking. Both are similar to Ipe in density, strength and durability, but with out the high price. Sourced from tropical rain forests using sustainable practices, these decking products are 100% natural, 100% organic, 100% clear grade, kiln dried for consistency, and always carefully inspected by Kayu exclusive graders.
Backed with a 25 year limited warranty, when you purchase Mahogany Decking from Cedar Country, you can be sure you are buying the highest quality Kayu® carefully selected hardwoods. Every time.
