example of an IPE deck. . .and we stock this product!
IpePros: This very dense tropical hardwood has become popular in recent years as a longer-lasting alternative to commonly available woods. Ipe can be sealed to maintain its deep reddish color, or it can be left untreated, in which case it will turn a brownish gray over time. This material is said to
to last 25 years or more.Cons: You will pay more for this material. Also, the wood is so dense, it can burn out drill bits quickly.

Did this Ipe deck experience cupping and unevenness?
Hi, I want to build a wood patio. What type of wood should I use to get a long lasting nice finish. Julie
I don't really know for the house and the Ipe' deck had not been stained yet in this image.
We usually use redwood or Ipe' wood. Redwood is softer but will hold a stain longer. Ipe' is more scratch resistant but it is hard to get
it is stone. I also had a small deck that serves more as an entry point into the house - I love it, too. It's size was small enough that I chose IPE wood with metal railings to minimize upkeep. I guess it depends on where you are putting it.
had an issue with Ipe. It all depends on the installer. If you pay high price, demand perfection. Ventilation is important, but also the materials used for install. Sealing all sides helps expand and contract, but there's a reason that some of the world's largest boardwalks use Ipe, because it works

I am building a house in Vermont and am hoping to build a back deck similar to this. Can you tell me what type of wood was used for the deck? Also, where can I find this type of railing?
your area and it spans 24" on center from joist to joist. Thicker 2" material (net finished 1-1/2") will be far more expensive. We're glad you chose Ipe over PVC, and hope this bit of information helps you in your construction lisaafleisher.
