1.The first thing to do is to inform yourself well about: What color you want; What type of resistance you need; What are going to be the common uses of the space, what level of maintenance you want.
2. Define if you want to add luminosity and amplitude to your spaces, if this is what you need, you can opt for light tones. If, on the other hand, you want the place to look more inviting, then choose woods in darker shades.
We recommend using Cumaru or Ipe, if you need more information on these types of wood call or visit us and we will help you out choosing the best for your needs, again, no strings attached
3. Analyze cost/benefit depending of the wood options you have available
Reminder: Each type of wood resists differently and needs special maintenance, this influences the sun, water and humidity. It is advisable to take special care when exposing it to these phenomena. The hardest woods are the long-lasting ones, however, if they have not been properly dried, their durability will be affected.
Advantage of Ipe and Cumaru:
