Exotic Tigerwood Flooring

Tigerwood is a common name for a species of tree that grows in Brazil and Western Africa from Sierra Leone to Angola. It can grow to be about 125 feet tall. As you might be able to tell from its name, this wood is striped kind of like a tiger. The main color of the wood is reddish-orange with reddish–brown stripes running thoughout the wood. If you’re looking for exotic hardwood flooring with character in your Denver home, tigerwood may be just the thing.

Also this wood has a hardness of 1850 on the Janka scale (the rating that measures the resistance of a sample of wood to denting and wear). In comparison, oak is about 1250 on the scale, meaning this wood is harder than red oak and withstands denting and scratching a little better. Also, because of the unique style of the wood, scratches that do occur will not be as noticeable as a wood that is all one color.
