Deck Construction: 4 Main Reasons to Choose Ipe Decking for Your Yard

3

Ipe wood (pronounced as ee-pay) has transformed into one of the most popular wood decking materials, and for good reason. This tropical hardwood mainly sourced from Brazilian rainforests has a flawless appearance and high quality function. But these aren’t the only reasons why Ipe decking is the favorite of most people, especially those who live in the country. Take a look at some of Ipe decking’s other great qualities below.

Durability

Ipe is a very dense wood. So dense in fact, that it doesn’t float on water. This much density gives it the ability to last up to 50 years, as long as it’s well-protected. This also means that the wood won’t stain, scratch, or crack easily, so it has the potential to remain beautiful for many years to come.
