IPE Wood Installation - I hear that IPE wood is tough to install.. Does it require special nailing or cutting or is it just like other hardwood floors?

You are welcome for the photo. We make and finish the flooring you see in the images in our factory in Oxnard, CA, near Santa Barbara. We have many installs in the San Francisco South Bay, and especially Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. Maybe we can do some custom factory-finished flooring business together with you! If you're interested, please contact me directly. - Jim Oliver, CEO.

What is the most popular, current trend, for solid hardwood color? I'd like your recommendation on color/product for small (120 sq ft) den.

I see Walnut, a medium dark tone with a lot of grain. Choose a color close to your pets fur color- yellow lab on dark wood? You'll see every hair and scratch.

We made the flooring pictured in this post. It is natural-colored Ipe from Brazil, hand-finished with satin sheen. The installation is near Poipu on the south coast of Kauai, Hawaii. Very popular amongst our customers nowadays is anything "cerused" - the whitewashed look on oak. In a light color, and with a UV-cured oil finish, it stands up to kids and pets, and looks great.
