Hi Lindsayking777,

Like Frederick + Federick Architects mentioned, Ipe is a species of wood. It's a tropical hardwood that is as dense and strong as steel. It goes by the common trade marked named of Ironwood or Pau Lope. The color is amazing and it's one of the longest lasting woods available.

This porch decking looks like a work of art and the boards being perpendicular to the house gives it a unique look. Wonderful porch Frederick + Frederick

How do you maintain the rich, dark, original color of the Ipe? I want to use Ipe for a covered screened porch in GA and am concerned about the graying/maintenance? Or would that not be an issue because it would be less exposed to the elements?

Any problems with t&g Ipe expanding and contracting? - I am replacing painted composite porch floor and love the look of Ipe but am worried about using t&g Ipe because my porch occasionally gets rain blown in. But I don't want it to look like a deck either which is what worries me about spacers. Any ideas?

Can T&G Ipe be painted and is a better choice than using T&G fir decking?

Is that Ipe on porch floor? - Did you use Ipe wood on porch floor? If so, was it done tongue and groove or with spacers? It looks as I'd the porch might get wet during rain storm.

Deck board size - What are the dimensions of the individual Ipe planks that were used here? We are doing a similar porch and I'm trying to decide between 4" and 6" wide. Yours looks so nice, I'd like to go similar to your look. And if you recall the thickness used as well, that would also be helpful..thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Merging into the Outdoors
Set out extra rockers or wicker furniture. For geographies with bugs, line up citronella candles and a small fan.
This long porch benefits from the structural repetition on the right and the windows on the left. Each helps break down the space, and the structural bays help define smaller areas for seating.
Here's a close-up of the Lowcountry porch, complete with lovely railings, traditional shutters, windows with transoms, lovely lighting, plants and beautiful wood underfoot and overhead. One of the best ways to make sure your porch is at its most welcoming is to add plenty of comfortable rocking chairs.
