What is Ipe decking?

what is ipe wood decking for veranda and terrace

Ipe decking is a hardwood made of Brazil walnut. This tree species grows only in Brazil. Ipe decking is extremely dense and strong. The material is 3 times stronger than cedar, and thanks to that it is called iron wood.

Due to its durability, Ipe was used in the construction of the Panama Canal. Ipe decks were also used for New York City's Coney Island formwork. Many tourists walk in this area and there is an active transport interchange. Under the constant stress test, the decking served 25 years without serious deformations.

The colors of the ipe boards vary from dark brown to reddish-brown. The texture of the decks is fine-grained or medium grained. The boards are characterized by a light glossy sheen.

It is completely free of knots. Ipe decking is naturally resistant to decay and termite attack. Ipe decking boards have Class A fire rating - the same fire rating as concrete and steel. When installed properly, Ipe will not deform much, even if it's left to gray without any maintenance.

Ipe wood decking is suitable for veranda, terrace or porch formwork. They are used for wall siding and roof decking. The solid material is ideal for pool cladding. Brazilian wood decking is also used for decking marinas, bridges and piers.

How to clean an ipe deck

how to clean ipe deck

Ipe decking demands regular cleaning in order to maintain a perfect pristine appearance, we suggest annual application of Ipe Oil. Deck owners must regularly clean and oil their decks. If the original brown color is not required, the deck does not need to be oiled, only cleaned periodically.

  • If you need to get the original color back, the deck can always be sanded
  • You can let your deck go grey and not do any maintenance. The deck will still last 50 years at least and cracking and warping will be minimal.

The lifespan of wood decking can be extended to 100 years if it is coated with oil and topcoats on four sides prior to installation.

The cost of Ipe decking

Wood decking price is quite high as it is made of wood that is imported from Brazil. These boards are also clear of knots and provide the best natural resistance to the elements and insect attacks.

Choose a favorable time to buy Ipe boards!Prices of Ipe vary in accordance with rain and harvest seasons in Brazil. Ipe is the cheapest from October to April and most expensive to buy from May to September. Plan your project ahead of time and buy your ipe when it is cheaper. Ipe price is also dependant on the US/CAD exchange rate.

Depending on the board profile and its purpose, the price of ipe wood decking varies from $21 to $300 per piece. For example, a 5/4x6 Pregrooved profile in lengths from 3 to 7 inches for Decks Floors and Screens costs $7 per lin.ft, and a profile 2x12 for Fascias, Cladding Posts-Columns costs $28.98 per lin.ft. The high cost is offset by the durability - durable wood withstands extreme weather conditions and physical damage.
