It is a durable hardwood that is often compared to teak and comes at a cheaper price. It’s quality and sturdiness makes it hightly sought after for use in the construction of projects that require water-resistant woods like boat docks, bridges or watercraft ramps.
Red Balau decking wood is kiln dried and basically free of maintenance. The boards are free of splinters and are smooth to the touch. It is considered a premium hardwood, free of defects and knots. Red Balau is one of the hardest woods around. In fact, Red Balau is thought to be four times the density of Redwood. It is recommended that if the product is being used outdoors that an oil finish be applied to help prevent weathering and UV damage.
Red Balau is a naturally oily wood so it must be sealed with oil properly, because if not, it can dry out and possibly absorb spills easily. There are great sealants available that aid in the protection of the wood. Because of Red Baluau’s wood’s density, you might need to reapply it more often than you would with other woods.
