    Global House have it in Udon, so I presume they do in KK.

    Or get frustrated when they don't answer your enquiry here:

    Shera wood can be found in many shops, but I purchased mine at the Global House Marmite is talking about in Udon. Good for trim and siding, but I am not so sure about the decking and functioning as a gate. It does break easily but holds up well as siding. I used it for the peaks of my house and garage. Lasts quite a long time without changing color and is a good wood alternative.

    I can not remember how much it was, but definitely cheaper than wood. How were you planning on using the Shera wood?

    We were told tiles are rather termite proof and thats why we consider using them instead of laminate or shera wood.

    It isnt termite proof?

    Termite resistant materials

    and another source saying concrete is termite proof...

    I know people here spray some stuff into their crawlspace but I didnt think its to protect the concrete, just to keep the buggers away from the house...

    Virtually every road side builders yard should stock Shera or an equivalent. The ones by us sell it for 550 bhat a pack ( 2.25 m2 ).

    Serra wood is a cement fiber product and termites will not eat it.
    in KKC it is available in any major home improvement store , I use mine for pickets in the front portion of our perimeter wall, Easy to work with, cuts with a grinding wheel, and is relatively inexpensive.
