Beautifying homes and gardens for over twenty years, Kayu Canada has changed the face of home with kayu batu mahogany. Known for its beauty, durability, and prolific applications both indoors and out, the distributor of this exotic hardwood owner Jim Labelle explains, “This wood species is valued for its quality exterior applications because of its natural oils and density, which makes it long-lasting and resistant to rot.”
What started in Canada as a natural decking alternative is now applied to siding, soffits, fascia, and fencing. Imported from Malaysian, Indonesia, Peru, and Brazil, Kayu Canada offers custom profiles milled in Calgary and offers 100% FSC certified wood upon request. Comparably priced to composite decking and cedar, it strongly resembling Brazilian cherry with its rich tones and knot-free features.
“Our customers use this product to accommodate entire outdoor experiences that include decking, fencing, pergolas, and outdoor kitchens, as it exhibits a seamless aesthetic that can look as good twenty years from now,” admits Labelle.
Located at Bay #8, 6304 Burbank Road SE in Calgary, Kayu Canada has serviced builders, suppliers, landscapers, architects, and innovative DIY’S with a wood that can withstand the harshness of our Canadian climate.
This imported hardwood was historically harvested for the manufacture of ships and piers. Later valued for its use on cruise ship decking and yachts, the wood eventually gained international popularity given a density and durability that is strongly coveted.
“We are the pioneers of Kayu products across Canada and there is nothing available that compares to it,” states Labelle, adding that its origins bring a beauty and lustre that only tropical hardwoods share. “What makes it a real winner is its internal and external applications, allowing a continuity that carries throughout the home.”
