When specifying lumber products for residential and commercial projects it is important to pick the best product for the project. For decades now products like Ipe and Greenheart have made names for themselves in exterior construction. Greenheart is the very best for marine construction providing outstanding strength and protection against natural enemies. Ipe has become the first choice for exterior decking in residential and commercial boardwalks. Turada® Hardwood Shingles is the next in line of tropical hardwoods separating it-self from all domestic alternatives.
Turada® hardwood Shingles are the first choice of architects, designers and specifiers around the world. With world recognition Turada® Hardwood Shingles have been used internationally with great success and are now available in the United States. Below are two of the international projects where Turada® Hardwood Shingles have been used.
Turada® Hardwood Shingles are made from Wallaba “a tropical hardwood” and are produced in a state of the art factory in Guyana. Turada® Hardwood Shingles are taper-sawn, 100% clear, 100% heartwood, and are naturally resistant to insects and decay. The shingles are long lasting with a lifespan of over 50 years.
