Red Balau Decking

When is a deck not a deck? For the average eye, a deck may just be a simple deck that you walk on without any history or heritage. But, for the family oriented individual, a deck is more than just a few slabs of wood: A deck is a place where memories are built. Imagine having your first dinner party on your beautiful new deck, or perhaps your little girl is all grown up and is celebrating her new life on your deck.   A deck that can last for generations is truly a deck that is worth building.

red balau deckingKnowing you need a deck to create beautiful memories is the easy part. So, what's the hard part?  Choosing the type of decking wood that you want for your deck. There are many different types of wood that you can choose from. How do you choose decking wood that is right for you? The type of decking wood you choose depends on your personal style, goals and dreams. 

Why Red Balau decking?

A popular type of decking wood used by many architects, builders, and homeowners is Red Balau, also known as Mahogany. Red Balau is a durable hardwood hailing from Indonesia. It's known for its reddish-brown color and will turn to a silverish gray if you allow weathering. It is a preferred choice for many because:

  • It's resistant to shrinkage
  • It's resistant to splintering
  • Its resistant to checking
  • It's sustainable
  • It's durable

Working with Red Balau decking wood

When it comes to working with Red Balau, it is fine to slightly coarse. Therefore you have to use saws with carbide tips. While sawing is slightly challenging, it's fairly easy to plane and it produces a fine and smooth finish. The other benefits of working with Red Balau decking include the following:

  • Red Balau comes in a wide variety of sizes
  • Red Balau can withstand extreme weather conditions
  • Red Balau is resistant to decay, fungi and insect attacks
  • Red Balau is managed in sustainable forests
  • Red Balau has a Class A fire rating

Many individuals love the fact that Red Balau can be finished to produce a great look, or it can weather to a beautiful silverfish gray color for a unique look. What's even more unique about Red Balau is that it is actually 4 xs harder than Redwood, and it's virtually maintenance-free. So, all you have to do is install the decking wood and relax!
