Brazilian Ash, also known as Garapa, is an excellent choice for your next flooring project due to its many appealing attributes. Here are some key reasons why Brazilian Ash/Garapa solid flooring is a great option:

  1. Color and Aesthetics: Brazilian Ash/Garapa wood exhibits a beautiful golden to honey-like color, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere in any space. Its natural color variation adds depth and character to the flooring, creating a visually pleasing and timeless look that complements a variety of interior design styles.

  2. Hardness and Durability: Brazilian Ash/Garapa is known for its remarkable hardness, boasting a high Janka hardness rating of approximately 1210. This hardness ensures that it is resistant to dents, scratches, and general wear and tear, making it suitable for high-traffic areas. Its durability ensures that your flooring will maintain its beauty and structural integrity over time.

  3. Long Lifespan: With proper care and maintenance, Brazilian Ash/Garapa flooring can last for several decades. Its inherent durability and resistance to damage contribute to its long lifespan, making it a worthwhile investment for your flooring project.

  4. Density and Stability: Brazilian Ash/Garapa wood has a moderate density, providing excellent stability for flooring applications. It is less prone to expanding or contracting with changes in humidity and temperature compared to other wood species. This stability reduces the risk of warping, cupping, or gapping, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting flooring solution.

  5. Resistance to Decay and Insects: Brazilian Ash/Garapa wood possesses natural oils and resins that make it highly resistant to decay, rot, and insect attacks. This inherent resistance enhances its durability and allows it to withstand exposure to moisture. It is suitable for areas prone to humidity, such as bathrooms and kitchens.

  6. Versatility: Brazilian Ash/Garapa's warm and golden color provides a versatile foundation for various design styles. It can complement both traditional and modern interiors, offering flexibility and the opportunity to create a cohesive and inviting aesthetic.

  7. Ease of Maintenance: Brazilian Ash/Garapa flooring requires relatively low maintenance. Regular sweeping or vacuuming, occasional damp mopping, and promptly cleaning up spills are typically sufficient to keep the flooring in excellent condition. Its hardness and resistance to staining make it easier to maintain its natural beauty.

  8. Sustainability: Our Brazilian Ash/Garapa wood is sourced from responsibly managed forests, ensuring its sustainability. By choosing this wood, you contribute to supporting environmentally conscious practices and the preservation of natural resources.

In summary, Brazilian Ash/Garapa Solid Flooring offers a combination of warm aesthetics, durability, stability, and resistance to decay. Its golden color, long lifespan, moderate density, and versatility make it a great choice for any flooring project. Whether it's for residential or commercial use, Brazilian Ash/Garapa flooring provides an attractive and reliable flooring solution that can enhance the overall ambiance of your space.

Boycott the Middle Man

Discover How Offers Sustainable Ipe Decking at Such Low Prices

Since the inception of our company, we've purposely avoided, and have boycotted anyone in our procurement staff and our producers throughout Brazil from dealing with lumber brokers, traders, or mills with a reputation of non-compliance. While other company's might fall for the tricks and deceptive practices that many brokers and mills employ, we've heard enough horror stories from customers that have been burned to know that it's sometimes better to take the more righteous path. This simple action of avoiding the middleman has enabled us to consistently import and ship only the best, sustainably harvested Ipe wood decking to you, our valued customers.
