Ipe Brazilian Hardwood Decking
Why buy Ipe Decking? Ipe Decks are one
of the most beautiful and longest lasting woods in the world.
We sell so much to the local Atlanta market that we have become one
of the biggest retailers of Ipe hardwoods in the south east.
Ipe is also called Brazilian Walnut. As its moniker, it is
from Brazil and is in high demand not only in the United States but
also in Europe and Asia. The Chinese Olympic stadium, or
"birds nest" used many tons of Ipe in its construction.
decks from Midtown to Dunwoody and beyond use Ipe to replace
existing PT or other builder grade construction. In
addition to upgrading, many builders are using Ipe in new
construction. Homes are becoming smaller this year for the
first time since the 1950s. With smaller indoor space,
builders are building more opulent outdoors space. Ipe floored
outdoor kitchens are becoming very popular.
Ipe is 3 times harder than Oak. That is the secret to Ipe's
ability to outlast Atlanta seasons. Even though it is very
hard, today's tools are harder. Any name brand carbide tipped
tool will cut and work Ipe.
Ipe also comes in Tongue and Groove profiles. Many antebellum
Atlanta homes in Inman Park, Grant Park and other historic areas are
replacing old Pine covered porches with Ipe. We have many widths of
Tongue and Groove Ipe. From the very popular narrow Ipe T&G 1x4s
decking to the wider Ipe T&G 1x6 decking we stock them locally
Why is Atlanta Ipe Decking better? We know
many of the little “tricks of the
trade” to help you get it right the first time. In this or any
economy, you do not want to experiment when you can just ask people
who have been there before.
