Product Description

Garapa is a tropical hardwood that is sourced from South America. This timber species is resilient and is ideal for outdoor use.
This species of hardwood is the lowest priced hardwood we offer. Whilst it is not as dense as Ipe or Balau, it is still far more durable than softwood and is resistant to both insect and fungal attacks. The material has also been kiln dried for dimensional stability.

The different tropical hardwoods primarily come from the Amazon regions of south America or regions in Africa and Indonesia.

You can use Garapa for all kinds of projects, you don’t just have to limit the boards to a decking area.
If you have some off-cuts or a project in mind, why not build a few matching planters or seating.

​FSC® certification available on request

Colour Variation

Garapa is known for its beautiful rich golden appearance with brown tones through the board. With all stable timbers you can use different coloured timbers to create patterns and highlight specific areas like deck perimeters, steps, ramps and changes in levels. You do not need to restrict yourself to one type of timber for the entire project whether it’s decking, cladding, flooring or decorative panelling.

Samples vary in colour so we recommend that you visit a display or show area where you can really get an understanding of what the boards will look and feel like. QTD have their very own unique show areas, why not come and visit us!

Fixing and Finishing Methods

Face Fixings:
This is a standard method where you simply screw through the top face of the board (pre-drill first if using hardwood) two screws per joist about 25mm in from each side of the board.

Board Spacing:
We recommend leaving a 5mm gap between each board. Our Hidden fixings will do this automatically for you but if you are using the face fixing method you can purchase our Deck Spacers to create that gap for you. They also show you how far in to position the screws.

Joist Spacing:
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing for a standard decking area, projects may vary.

End Grain Sealer:
When the timber starts to dry out it loses the moisture quicker through the ends of the timber hence the characteristics of grain checking and opening up. Clear wax sealer seals the timber ends and slows down the moisture loss to a more controlled process, thus preventing this cracking. This is especially useful because cutting off the damaged ends not only becomes an expensive waste of timber, but may mean the difference between having the right length of timber for your project or it being several centimetres too short.
We recommend using our Messmers End Grain Wax Sealer to prevent the boards from grain checking.

Oil Finish:
Oiling the boards will help you to retain the dark rich colours within the boards. This product contains UV filters to delay the silvering process that strong sunlight causes in all timbers. We recommend our Messmers UV Plus Oil.

​It costs £5.20/square metre to have the boards Pre-oiled, please let us know if you would like this option.
