Red Balau is one of our more versatile types of hardwood. It’s not as dense as Tigerwood, making it easier to cut, saw, and nail. Depending on your maintenance preferences, you can achieve two different looks with your Red Balau deck. Regular upkeep and treatments will keep your deck looking fresh, clean, and brand new. However, a new trend in Colorado is the incorporation of rustic and weathered themes. By not treating as often, your deck will achieve a more silver-gray tone, giving your deck the contemporary, rustic look.
