Tigerwood Deck



Tigerwood is a very unique decking product with unique installation methods not commonly used for other types of decking such as composites and softwoods.

We use saw blades with 16 teeth to reduce friction when cutting, and the blade will stay sharp longer.  When a miter saw we use 12" saws with 32 teeth.

If boards are not grooved pre-drilling is necessary to avoid wood splitting and screw breakage. Nail guns will cause the wood to split either after impact or when the wood loses moisture. Cobalt alloy drill bits are the most effective and longest lasting when drilling into Tigerwood.

Stainless Steel fasteners are imperative for fastening Tigerwood.

Pressure treated wood is use for the framing. It provides long-term protection from rot, decay and termites without the use of any EPA-listed hazardous chemicals.
