Thank you so much for responding to my question regarding this beautiful porch you created..I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that you responded because I have been searching and searching for wood like this that offers durability and beauty!!! I can now begin more front balcony porch project:)!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to respond and if I lived close to you, I'd completely call you for the job:) But I'm in KY. Beautiful craftsmanship!!:)

Is IPE inexpensive? Better than composite?

Tongue and groove or ...? - It's Haley again, curious if this porch is tongue and grove or just deck panels ?
