Ipe Hardwood Decking Is The Best Hardwood Available

Ipe decking has a rich dark brown color with beautiful grain characteristics. Also known as Brazilian Walnut, an Ipe hardwood deck will gradually age to a lustrous silver-grey if left untreated. It can be oiled or stained to retain its rich brown color. Nova Ipe decking is available in sizes 1x4 through 2x12, 2x2 balusters, and 4x4 posts.

Rich Brown Color Requires Reapplication of Oil Finish

Ipe hardwood decks will maintain their structural integrity as they age. In order to retain the rich brown color, we recommend a high quality penetrating oil finish with ultraviolet inhibitors, such as EcoShield. Regular cleaning and reapplication of an oil finish will ensure that your Ipe hardwood decking retains its beauty for many years.

Selective logging is the only legal way to cut timber in the rain forest. Timber management plans allow approximately 50 trees per 1000 acres to be harvested. Within just a few years, it is nearly impossible to see the negative affects of logging. A typical management plan in tropical Brazil allows logging once every 30 to 40 years, allowing plenty of time for natural regeneration of the forest resource.

Ipe Decking Installation

When installing your Ipe deck, be sure to follow our Installation Guidelines to receive a 25 year warranty on our decking. You must keep the raw material in a protected area away from direct sunlight and other weather conditions. It is equally important to give the material some time to acclimate to the building site in order to prevent warping, cracking, and general movement of the boards once installed.
