What Makes Ipe Decking So Special?

Long lasting and durable only begin to describe Ipe. Ipe is an amazing hardwood with qualities other building materials simply don't posses. Not only is Ipe naturally resistant to decay, it is one of the hardest woods on the planet. Ipe (pronounced EE-pay), is also know by its trade name Pau Lope™, and in America is more commonly called ironwood. The deep, rich, walnut-like tones that Ipe is known for is more reminiscent of hardwoods people utilize for their indoor living spaces.

Ipe wood is harvested from sustainable farms in South and Central America. Ipe is eight times stronger than redwood and three times stronger than cedar, and perfectly suited for decking. It is just as strong and durable as teak, but costs a lot less money. Ipe is also highly resistant to termites and fungus, and is almost impervious to mold. Ipe wood is extremely dense and versatile. Ipe cleans easily, and it doesn't splinter, so you can confidently walk on it in your bare feet. Obviously, for decking Ipe is hard to beat, whether you use it for pool decking or for your barbeque deck.
