In New Jersey Ipe decks are gaining in popularity. Ipe (pronounced, E-pay) has been traditionally used indoors as a fine hardwood floor. Due to ipe’s beauty, strength, and natural resistance to rotting, insects, abrasion & weather, builders and homeowners have begun installing ipe as a deck material.
Ipe lumber is almost twice as dense as most woods and up to 5 times harder. Ipe deck boards come in long lengths, are virtually knot free, and have very little to no warping. It ages to a nice light gray with exposure to the weather. The color can be protected with the periodic application of UV protective coatings. If allowed to age, color can be brought back to its original shade, with the use of a pressure washer.If you are interested in ipe decks in New Jersey, you should seek the advice of a professional.
