    This is ipe or Brazilian hardwood, a very dense and durable wood, an excellent use for decking. It has the fire rating of concrete.

    Hi lorimark,

    Austin Patterson Architects did a beautiful job in this deck and it appears as if the homeowners decided to go for the silver patina color of Ipe. The beautiful thing about that it's that it will not splinter or crack as it grays out like other woods.

    Hope this bit of information helps you as well.
