Tigerwood flooring comes from South America, most frequently Brazil and Bolivia. Tigerwood goes by several different names including Astronium, Muiracatiara, Goncalo Alves and Cuta Tigre. I especially like Cuta Tigre. See our unfinished flooring page for more details.
Due to the economic downturn, sales have slowed quite a bit for unfinished Tigerwood flooring, but our prefinished Tigerwood flooring is still selling quite well. I think more prefinished flooring is used in the remodeling industry as opposed to new construction.
We carry Tigerwood unfinished flooring in 3″, 4″ and 5″ widths – all in a 3/4″ thickness. The lengths range from 1′ to 7′ in each sub-bundle, with the average being around 3.2′ to 3.5′. We carry both unfinished and prefinished Tigerwood flooring in Clear grades – some people refer to Clear as Select and Better or SelBtr or Sel&Btr. These are generally equivalent grades.
