Cumaru Hardwood Deck with Custom ViewRail System
Our customers had a home in the hills of Cascade that needed an exterior facelift. They had multiple decks and sets of stairs that were constructed of redwood and were in need of replacement. Working together, DBS and the homeowners designed the new decks and stairs to be much more up-to-date with a sleek, contemporary look. We used Cumaru hardwood, also known as Brazilian Teak, because it exceeds the requirements for a Class A fire rating, making it an exceptional choice for mountain homes. It is a very popular hardwood due to its density, which makes it extremely resistant to termites and decay. Cumaru is an attractive, medium golden-brown color with shades of tan, which results in a tonal warmth that creates a beautiful, relaxing outdoor living area.
In keeping with the contemporary look, the owners chose to use a railing system from ViewRail. It is constructed with 3″ x 3″ posts and 1/4″ horizontal rods in matte black, resulting in an unobstructed view of the gorgeous Colorado scenery. We also added a drink cap in Cumaru. All the attention to detail creates a fantastic set of decks that the homeowners will be using to enjoy the mountain scenery for years to come!
