Where to purchase Garapa?
I was just about ready to place my order for Port Orford Cedar decking, even after getting advised against it due to rotting issues) from folks here (mostly Jon Mon) and others outside this forum.
The more I read about Cedar's longevity issues ( I have a low deck, about 12-18" off the ground) the more I started thinking about a hardwood as I really don't want to replace my decking again in the next 10 years.
So, after reading more, I am pretty much sold on Garapa. I will be doing the work myself and am a bit concerned about working with a hardwood. I did a very small project with Mahogany and it turned out ok but I used stainless nails (bent quite a few). I assume I would want to pre-drill and screw as opposed to stainless nails with the Garapa.
Last question. The Garapa is pretty pricey in my area (Boston). I would consider an internet order to save some money, but I have no idea which companies are reputable about shipping quality product. Has anyone had good success with any of these companies, that they would be willing to suggest?
