Hi robynpio,

To answer your question, it isn't recommended for Ipe to go directly on top of concrete. It's always best to have at least 18" of gap space underneath for air to adequately pass through every board. If you still wish to install Ipe on top of concrete there are two methods. Using Ipe Deck Tiles, or using sleepers on top of concrete and placing Ipe boards on top of those.

Having said this, using Ipe Deck Tiles will save a lot of money and head aches because they are easy to install, don't require a contractor, and they are made for direct concrete installation. If you go with the sleeper method we'd suggest buying decking that's 5/4x4 and no longer than 5 ft. This will give you a better chance of having that Ipe last and not cup or buckle. However, it may still occur.

Hope this helps and if you have any other questions feel free to send u a message or give us a call.

Try Lantern & Scroll, I know if you love them they can make them for you from a picture (I had a similar light made). They were great to work with. Here is the one I used.

I think I just saw that light at Lantern & Scroll when I was picking out my front door fixture. You should try them They were so helpful and easy to work with. The prices were great and all USA made. Cheers!

Does anyone know if Sikkens has a light blue color that I could use for our beadboard porch ceiling? I'm looking for something that is low maintenance.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A traditional Southern home is appropriately outfitted with a subtle blue ceiling.
Or use a light blue on the ceiling of your porch. It’s a classic way to echo the sky as a transition from the exterior to the interior of a home.
