Why IPE Hardwood Decking? Strength, Beauty, & Durability
Also known as Brazilian Walnut, IPE is one of the hardest and most durable woods for decking. Its natural resilience against harsh weather conditions, insects, and decay has made it a popular choice for homeowners who want a natural yet low-maintenance decking solution.
IPE is significantly more durable than other types of wood, lasting for decades when properly maintained. Its dense and tough structure makes it resistant to cracking, rot, and warping, ensuring a stable and long-lasting deck surface.
With its rich, warm colors ranging from reddish-brown to dark brown, it offers an aesthetic that adds charm and character. You can seal your deck periodically to maintain its original colors, or you can choose to let the wood naturally age to a beautiful silver-gray color.
