Ipe decking is 100% solid hardwood. Look at the picture below, and you'll see the grain and the tightly packed fibers:
Ipe decking is so much more than just beautiful. It's strong, durable, resistant to fungus, fire, insects, splintering, and even slipping. It's all thanks those tiny fibers that are so densely packed together. Ipe is the densest and strongest wood decking in the world.
- Ipe is 8 times stronger than redwood
- Ipe decks can last over 75 years, even in Washington's climate
- Ipe naturally resists insects and fungus
