St. Louis Ipe Hardwood Decks by Archadeck

St. Louis Ipe Hardwood Decks by Archadeck

The sky’s the limit for custom deck designs due to the number of outstanding building materials available in today’s market including Ipe (pronounced eepay).

Ipe falls under the category of wood decking, as opposed to composite, vinyl, or capstock decking materials; however, Ipe is in a ‘class all-its-own’.

Ipe decking, sometimes referred to as Ironwood or Brazilian Walnut, is grouped with exotic hardwoods.

It’s known for a long lifespan, durability, density and texture as well as certain natural properties that make Ipe perfect for outdoor structures.

Ipe is also appreciated for its rich shades of amber, reds and browns with fine texture and distinct grain.

This hardwood complements any home setting, bringing the natural look and feel of wood to your backyard.

So, if you want one of the best choices for building an outdoor structure such as a deck or screened porch, Ipe is hardwood decking at its finest.
