Advantage Lumber Red Balau Wood Decking & Siding

Advantage Lumber, LLC is now offering Red Balau wood decking and siding. Red Balau is a tropical hardwood species native to southeast Asia. In spite of its name, Red Balau lumber actually turns brown within a few days of exposure to sunlight, giving it an appearance similar to that of the better-known Ipe. This, combined with Red Balau's much cheaper price tag, makes it an ideal alternative for budget-conscious homeowners who still want a high-end deck. Red Balau may not be as famous as South American hardwoods like Ipe, Cumaru, or Tigerwood, but its authentic looks and impressive, low-maintenance durability earn it a place alongside the greatest of decking materials.
Red Balau is just the latest of Advantage Lumber, LLC's recent product line expansions. Prior to bringing on Red Balau, Advantage added Teak decking and siding to its lineup.
Advantage Lumber, LLC is devoted to sustainable forestry. They select only the most suitable species that can be harvested in a responsible, eco-friendly manner. That goes for their Plantation Teak, which is planted in rows on tree farms for maximum sustainability, as well as their selectively harvested Red Balau.
A 2017 study determined that there are about 60,000 tree species in the world(1). Of those, only about 1,600 are commercially harvested and traded for timber(2), and only a few hundred are well-known amongst consumers. Many of these woods, including Red Balau, perform better than more commonly used species, but most people don't know about them yet due to a lack of big marketing campaigns outside the local growing areas. This creates an opportunity for customers to get a bargain before increased awareness of these woods' amazing physical properties drives the demand—and prices—up.
You can order Red Balau decking or siding by calling 1-877-232-3915, visiting AdvantageLumber.com, or stopping into one of their US factories where all of your decking products can be custom milled.
