    Do you think TWP 1500 would work on this? I've used it on decks before and it's the best at penetrating, but ipe is new to me so not sure if it would take. http://www.twpstain.com/twp-1500-series

    Simply put a coat of IPE oil on when you finish the deck, and then one more coaty 6 months later. After that, about each 2 years. By the way, you can put IPE oil on quickly and effortlessly with a rag or roller. The deck in this picture would take less than 45 minutes to oil.

    Gapping the deck boards allows for drainage and also ventilation; the size of the gap we use will depend on the moisture level in the wood and the type of wood.

    As a company we do not use hidden fasteners to secure Ipe decking. We prefer to face fasten our decks and use Ipe plugs to hide the fasteners.

    This was a low profile framing application done with flush mounted posts and beams. We unfortunately do not have a photo of the framing.

    Ipe ( pronounced e-pay, rhymes with ebay). Its a fabulous product for decks. Never rots, can't set it on fire, bugs hate it, never needs painting, and won't burn your feet like Trex decking on a hot day. Call me for a sample.

      Wood. Many wood species are less expensive than composite but can weather over time and drive up maintenance costs. If you don’t take care of the wood, it can rot, dry out, warp, crack and splinter, and nails can pop out. But if you’re willing to maintain it, wood decking is beautiful, especially up close. Shown here is an ipe deck, which is a Brazilian hardwood known for its natural durability and for being weatherproof. Jellema says the price of ipe has risen dramatically in previous years due to demand. It’s now about the same price as composite. If you go with a wood deck, it’s recommended that you power wash it and re-oil it after pollen and leaves have fallen, because they’re a food source for bacteria, Jellema says. Keep in mind that the availability of certain woods varies across the country. Redwood and cedar are popular deck choices on the West Coast but are hard to come by on the East Coast. And, again, check with your HOA about any restrictions on using wood or composite decking.See more on wood versus composite
