Before you begin building your deck, you should take some time to consider the scope of your outdoor project
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) March 26, 2008
BuildDirect, the world's leading online wholesaler of building materials, has launched a new line of decking just in time for spring. Pavilion Hardwood Decking from BuildDirect is the ideal product for any high-end decking project. Pavilion hardwood decking from BuildDirect is a perfect addition to make your wood decking ideas into a reality.
"The Pavilion Brand is a great choice for anyone looking to add an exotic look to their decking project," said Rob Banks. "Ipe and Cumaru decking are two of the most durable hardwood species available and they are also among the most attractive."
The new Pavilion Hardwood decking offers three different species to choose from; Tigerwood, Cumaru and Ipe. Tigerwood hardwood decking, also known as Zebrawood or Zorrowood, is a highly durable wood with a high resistance to beetle attack. Its most distinguishing features include a unique reddish and orange pattern, bold striping and a hardness of 2160 on the Janka Hardness scale.
Cumaru hardwood decking, commonly referred to as Brazilian Teak, is a South American species known primarily for its resistance to insect attack and decay. It is an irregular, slightly irregular grain which has a grainy texture. Cumaru decking is also extremely durable with a hardness of 3500.
Ipe hardwood decking, or Brazilian Walnut as it is more commonly known, is the hardest of the three species with a hardness of 3680 and has been known to last up to 50 years without treating. This species is very resistant to decay, fungi and termites.
With so much choice in hardwood, how do you know which species is right for you and your wood decking ideas? According to BuildDirect, three factors to consider before any decking purchase are durability, price and style.
"Before you begin building your deck, you should take some time to consider the scope of your outdoor project," said Rob Banks. "While it is important to consider your budget, you never want to compromise quality or cut corners, especially when building a new deck. Some projects require stronger surfaces. Consider your need for a hard or durable decking product to avoid upgrading to a more durable species half-way through your project."
Pavilion Ipe Decking is available at $2.58/lineal ft for the Premium Solid Air-Dried model. Pavilion Cumaru Decking is available at $2.09/lineal ft for the Premium Solid Kiln Dried model, and $2.29/lineal ft for the Premium Pre-grooved Kiln Dried model. Pavilion Tigerwood Decking is available at $2.10/lineal ft for the Solid Kiln Dried model.
