Personally, we like the look of the weathered gray ipe, otherwise it is an ongoing maintenance problem. If you want to refinish it, we would use a clear finish, not a stain.

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?

Code requires the opening to be less than 4". We typically space them at 4" o.c.

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

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.
