If you like the idea of building a Mahogany deck, look no further than Red Balau decking.  Just about half the price of Ipe,  Red Balau hardwood decking is one of the most durable decking woods on the market today.  This beautiful red decking material is resistant to insects, splintering, shrinkage and checking, and delivers a result second to none.


Important facts about Red Balau

Red Balau is from Indonesia and is grown on plantations.  Balau is harder than other types of normal Mahogany with minimal color variations.  When used outside it weathers to a finish of silver/gray.  Red Balau material is kiln dried and is almost free of maintenance. The boards are splinter free and smooth to the touch.  It is considered a premium hardwood, free of defects and knots.
