Ipe Decks Miami has been installing Ipe for over 20 years. Here are some of the "selling points"
Ipe wood is one of the hardest hardwoods in the world. It has 3680 lbf according to the Janka rating system. It is strong, durable, and is so dense that it will submerge into the water instead of float. The highest quality of Ipe can live up to 50 years. In other words, you can enjoy your beautiful natural decking for a lifetime.
Highly resistant to common causes of wood problems
Ipe decking will surely give you your money’s worth. Aside from its strength, it is also commended for its durability and resistance to common wood problems. Ipe has tight fibers so it can effectively resist water and moisture. This is also the very reason why it cannot absorb stains and paint easily. You won’t have to worry about termites, insects, mold, and heat, either, because they cannot penetrate Ipe wood.
Durability and low-maintenance always go hand in hand. Since your Ipe decking is not affected by the common causes of wood problems, you won’t have to deal with repairs, repainting, and other maintenance procedures. There is no need to treat decaying and squeaky Ipe wood boards. Of course, regular sweeping and mopping are necessary to keep your Ipe decking clean. Sealing the wood annually is also recommended. Other than this, there’s no special upkeep to do.
Building an Ipe wood deck will cost more money initially, but considering all these great advantages, Ipe decking can indeed be a great investment.
