Among hardwoods, Ipe is considered the most prestigious and valued wood. It stands out for its strength, durability, and density.
the smooth hardwood resembles mahogany and can last more than 50 years without needing replacement. Within Ipe wood are natural oils that preserve it; combined with the wood’s exceptional density, you can expect an Ipe deck or fence to last 50 years or more without replacement. In fact, the Coney Island Boardwalk in New York was constructed out of Ipe wood decking. It lasted for 70 years.
Ipe has natural attributes to defeat many of the plagues that deck owners fear most: insects, rots, fire, and the effects of inclement weather. It has a class-A fire rating that is the same as steel and concrete. Stays cool even in hot sun! While Ipe does have some warmth when the sun is out, it does not retain the heat. So, it never gets too hot to walk on.
Ipe wood decking makes any structure stand in a class of its own; and is a true investment in your home or business that will last a lifetime.

Ipe heartwood is olive-brown with lighter or darker streaks. Grain is straight to irregular with a low to medium luster. The pores appear as fine yellow dots and contain yellowish lapachol powder which turns deep red in alkaline solutions. Texture is fine and appears oily. Fine ripple marks may be present.
Ipe is a dense hardwood and does not splinter easily. It’s safe for bare feet, doesn’t get hot like composite decking material and is not as slippery. Ipe dries fast and is a popular choice for many hotel pool decks.
