South African Pine
Pine is an easy product to work with. It is classified as a softwood and it’s easy to cut and easy to sand if there isn’t a lot of grain. It is valued for its timber and pulp and mostly used for furniture, window frames, floors and roofing.
A popular, durable tropical hardwood, similar to teak and often used in a lot of houses within the Western Cape.
Meranti is an open grain medium-hardwood timber commonly used for decorative purposes such as mouldings, furniture, panelling, joinery and window frames. It is versatile and durable for outdoor applications however it may require regular application of maintenance products such as a sealer.
An exceptionally long lasting hardwood that seldom moves after installation. Garapa’s sustainability makes it an ideal choice for decking projects.
