Could Red Grandis be a good hardwood lumber substitute for you?

 From time to time market demand shifts cause companies to research different hardwood species for products they manufacturer. When using hardwood lumber, product substitutes are usually limited based on what it is being used for, however, it is not unheard of.

One of the imported species that seems to have a great deal of versatility is Red Grandis. Red Grandis is a plantation grown hardwood sourced from Urufor in Uruguay. It is a high-quality hardwood lumber that is used for many different applications.

Known for its consistent texture, grain and color some claim Red Grandis is similar to Genuine Mahogany and Cherry. It has a reputation for being a species for high-end furniture, cabinetry, doors, windows and stair projects. We have also seen Red Grandis being requested for many exterior applications such as shutters, siding, boatbuilding parts and even decking.

They all have a feeling market pricing for those species could rise and are looking for more specifics on availably and pricing of Red Grandis since it has similar working properties and characteristics.

Only the future will tell if this comes to fruition, but it does bode well for the popularity and exposure of Red Grandis in general.
