July is the perfect time for summer projects and we have a couple products that will give you a few ideas.



No summer can go without a outdoor deck ready to entertain. We have a perfect product just for that and it will also hold up to the harsh summer elements. Kebony is not only aesthetically pleasing but it is strong and also a durable alternative to tropical hardwood species.

Kebony is 100% environmentally friendly and sustainable. At Homestead Timbers we stock Southern Yellow Pine but can order Radiata Pine if needed. The boards go through a process called Kebonization, which means the boards are impregnated with a plant biobase which makes them a solid piece instead of porous.  The solid board will prevent penetration of moisture, UV rays, and other outdoor elements that decks endure throughout the course of the year.

Kebony starts out as a rich brown but slowly turns to a gray patina look over time and never has to be refinished.

Kebony Offers you:

  • Maintenance free life cycle
  • Dimensional Stability
  • High Compression Strength
  • Strong Resistances against decay, fungi, and insects
  • Non-Toxic
  • High Durability
  • Cost Effective
  • Lasts three times as long as typical pressure treated lumber

Uses for Kebony:

  • Marine Applications
  • Residential, Public and Commercial Building Exteriors
  • Roofs
  • Walls
  • Cladding
  • Deck/dock, public space planking
  • Outdoor furniture

We offer various sizes in order to provide the look you desire.
