Ipe' Deck Boards
Ipe' (pronounced "ee-pay") is an exotic Brazilian Hardwood that makes not only a beautiful hardwood deck for you and your family to enjoy for years to come but is low maintenance as well.Ipe consists of dark brown tones and is known as Brazilian Walnut. When the sun hits your new Ipe deck you might even see a reddish or greenish tint in some boards.
Our Premium Brazilian Hardwood can be used for many applications due to the fact that it comes in various sizes and lengths and can also be milled in our custom mill shop to meet all of your building and project needs.
Ipe is the hardest of our Brazilian Hardwoods. It is approximately 3 times harder than Oak with an approximate 100 year life expectancy. Ipe is naturally resistant to bugs, mold and mildew due to it hardness and density. You do not have to do anything to your new Ipe deck for it to last and last for years to come, but it will turn to a silvery-gray color if you do not apply a UV Finisher made for Hardwood.
Ipe not only meets but exceeds the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for slip resistance when wet so it is perfect for high traffic areas, ramps, docks, piers or by your pool.
