Also known as Brazilian walnut or ironwood, ipe is one of the best natural decking materials available on the market today. Ipe is a very dense, tight, grained wood with a deep rich brown, red or amber hue. It has a clean look whether oiled or left untreated, and has a natural resistance to insects and fire. Building decks with ipe wood can be difficult, and requires a great deal of experience to do so successfully. That’s where the pros at Karpentor come in! Our deck builders have over 25 years of experience working with ipe wood, so you know that our ipe decks are durable, functional and stunning to look at.
