Ipe (pronounced EE-pay) is indigenous to Central and South America. Ipe decking inherits the tree’s natural properties to make it the toughest, longest-lasting decking material available. As you can see, ipe decks add a touch of class to any outdoor space. Ipe is rich brown with red and amber hues. It has an extremely dense interlocking grain which can be either wavy or straight, and offers superior slip resistance.
Ipe is very low-maintenance. If you want to keep your deck surface clean, just brush off leaves and clean up spills when they happen. You don’t have to worry about mold or preservative treatments. The color will fade to a silver patina over time, but this has no effect on the deck’s structural integrity. To preserve the color, just apply a quick coat of Ipe Oil.
Tigerwood (Ipe), also known as Goncalo Alves, is the most exotic looking of the Brazilian Hardwoods. Tigerwoodeatures a unique light golden-brown to reddish-brown coloring with exotic black and brown streaks.
Tigerwood is kiln dried and is approximately 2 ½ times harder than Oak, naturally resistant to mold, mildew and insects, with an approximate 100-year life span.
When we first install your Tigerwood decking, it might be a pale shade but if you want a darker, richer color do not put your finisher on yet. If your deck does get full sun, as the sun hits your boards it will bring out more color each day! Apply your finisher on once the color has come out. Once your deck is installed, you do not have to do anything to your Tigerwood deck for it to last for years to come but it will turn to a silvery-gray color if you do not apply a UV Finisher made for Hardwoods.
