Why You Should Consider an IPE Deck

An IPE deck is known to be extremely dense which makes it a great choice for all weather conditions. What other differences are there between IPE decking and traditional options, and why might it be the right choice for you? Let us tell you more about it.

What to Know About IPE Wood

When trying to determine what type of wood is best for your deck, first, consider how much maintenance and time you are willing to put into your new hangout spot annually. 


For starters, IPE wood is one of the hardest woods which is great news for you. This makes the deck extremely durable and adds to its longevity. The beatings alternative woods take, such as composite, will not be seen here. If you need to replace a board, unlike alternatives, the IPE board will blend in within a few months.


The texture of an IPE deck is great. Not only does it provide a lovely look, but the surface is resistant to slips. If it rains, you won’t have to be worried about sliding across your new deck thanks to this material. 


Whether you want a deck or a new bench, the versatility and durability of the material is a natural choice for any commercial or residential projects. Not to mention all of the patterns and designs you can achieve with IPE decking that composite may not allow. 


Hate the thought of your deck getting ruined? IPE decking is extremely resistant to the biggest of problems including rot, mold, insects, and more. If you want a low maintenance deck, this is a great choice.


An IPE deck is a cost-effective option for those looking for low maintenance, durable, and beautiful alternative to plastic or composite boards. There are many more advantages to IPE wood, and that is why it’s becoming a more popular option among people building decks!
