Ipe Wood Deck Builder Victoria BC
We build beautiful decks out of Ipe
Ipe, pronounced (ee-pay) is a Brazilian hardwood that has been prized for it’s durability and Ipe has been a luxury deck building material for many years. You’ve probably already walked on an Ipe deck, walkway, or boardwalk without even knowing it as it’s easily one of the most popular exotic wood choices in North America. Ipe’s color can vary from a deep brown to yellow-brown with grey undertones.
Outdoor Carpentry Company is a deck building service based in Victoria and serving the Great Victoria region. We specialize in designing and building custom wood decks made out of luxurious Ipe. Whether you want us to rebuild an existing deck or build something new and unique the small team of craftsman at the Outdoor Carpentry Company will be able to help you.
Ipe hardwood is chosen for its high density and resistance to scratches, decay and insects. With a Janka hardness rating of 3680 it’s more than 3 times more durable than Cedar! Another cool fact about IPE is that it’s just as fire resistant as steel!
Maintenance for an Ipe deck is like any other exotic hardwood. You can either choose to the oil deck on an annual basis to keep it’s rich colors or you can let the wood naturally weather into a silvery/gray patina that would require very little maintenance aside from sweeping.
Because of it’s hardness Ipe can be tough on a craftsmans tools and is not the easiest wood to work with from a construction perspective. This doesn’t change the fact that when completed an Ipe deck is a beautiful sight and will improve the curb appeal and enjoyment of any home.
