Statistically, it has shown that Chengal timber still stands above the rest of the timber species.  8 out 10 landed properties in Singapore still use Chengal for decking over their patio and proven the most durable choice in Singapore Humid Tropical Climate.

In spite of its good reputation, there are some marketing myths that Chengal Tree is not MATURE enough.

Unlike other merchants, Nam Soon chooses the finest and sustainable logs for processing. Since it is sustainable source, each purchase logs have to meet minimal requirements of at least 800mm in diameter before it is being selected and cut down.

800mm in diameter which also translate to at least 70-80 years of age.
