The world’s go-to exotic hardwood
For the most exceptional beauty and highest endurance at an affordable value, look no further than our exotic Ipe (pronounced ee-pay) hardwood. Ipe’s coloration varies from lustrous mahogany red to deep reddish-brown, and its grain is tightly interwoven, creating an attractive undulating pattern.
Considered the most durable of any decking product, Ipe is highly resistant to decay, weathering, and insects, and retains a like-new appearance with a minimal amount of cleaning and maintenance. Ipe is the toughest decking product available on the market, and won’t split, crack, or warp when exposed to rain and extreme temperatures with proper installation. Ipé also has an extremely high density so it is hard and resistant to scratching. Ipe retains its beauty and stands up to decades of wear and tear, making it an ideal choice for a wide variety of projects. Ipe will retain its vibrant color variation with UV inhibiting sealers or will grey to a majestic silver-grey patina if uncoated.
