Brazilian Teak Premium Grade Hardwood Flooring, otherwise called Cumaru, is a captivating wood species from South America that makes a beautiful wood flooring for your home. Our Brazilian Teak is noted for its rich medium bronze to dark brown chocolate colored shading from board to board. Also, you will find a limited amount of dark reddish-brown pieces that runs throughout giving a warm sense to this fascinating wood. The long grain pattern of the flooring gives a featherlike wavy array that is delicate and engaging. Premium Grade also known as Clear Grade will be the most uniform grade available while still allowing for the desired color variations it is known for. This product is precision milled but we have found in some cases that the 5″ might have some slight width variation due to the kiln drying process, however, professional installers know how to handle this. Brazilian Teak is exceptional for its high hardness rating ranking as one of the strongest hardwood floor species on the planet.

It is 174% percent harder than the acclaimed northern Red Oak, with a score of 3540 on the Janka Hardwood Durability Scale.

On the Janka Hardness scale, Brazilian Teak positions 3540 versus the 1290 of Red Oak.
