Love your railing and deck! How to get ipe to this color?stain thanks
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hello Ptmlee and Seaton9883,

Ipe doesn't need a stain to turn this color. Since it's such a hardwood, you can leave Ipe without any UV inhibitor Oil and it will turn into a silver patina like teak on a yacht. Ipe won't splinter or crack as it silvers out and it will still be smooth.

For the railing, we work closely with a company named Atlantis cable railing and they sell the cable railings and metal posts.

Any other questions send us a message or give us a call!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Add an Indoor or Outdoor Ramp
First steps: Decide where you want the ramp to go and think about why you are having it installed. Is it for accessibility, for aging in place or purely for fun? What is your budget and timetable for this project? Answering these questions will help when you contact pros.

Open to enjoy view, cables don't interfere with view and at same time safe enough to keep someone from falling through. Just need to make sure ramp is wide enough for walker plus assistant at same time. Also, in the handicap (or even strollers) for turning radius
