What Is Wallaba?


Wallaba is a hardwood grown and harvested throughout the northeast corner of South America, with Guyana, Suriname and Brazil being the largest suppliers. It is notable for its color, density and naturally occurring resins that protect against a number of potentially damaging factors. It has a coarse texture and a relatively straight grain, making it an excellent choice not only for shingles, but also for fencing, flooring, decks and more.

The key benefits of choosing Wallaba over other materials include its:

  • Gorgeous deep red color, which matures over time to a stately silver
  • Exceptional resistance to fire, decay and insects — without the use of chemical treatments
  • Light weight, strength and durability
  • Long-lasting performance, even in the most extreme conditions — Wallaba shingles can often be counted on for forty years of use, if not more

Details &  Examples:

Our Royalwood™ Wallaba shingles are milled in Guyana using locally sourced, 100% clear heartwood. We take care to ensure all trees are sustainably harvested. Because Wallaba is so abundant in the region, it’s possible to meet consumer demands responsibly, without artificially inflating our prices. Depending upon the order customization, additional finishing is performed in our Florida facility, where we exercise the highest standards of quality control to ensure you get a product that meets your demanding requirements.

Royalwood™ Wallaba shingles and shakes are typically sold in 18” lengths, though custom-cut products are also available. We offer several decorative profiles, including dragon’s tooth, diamond, fish scale and other popular choices from the Fancy-Cutt™ product line. In most cases, we require a minimum order of 2,500 square feet.
