Ipe decking wood

Ipe hardwood is a hardwood flooring and has many names. Ipe as a deck wood comes in many forms: ipe decking, Brazilian walnut flooring, ironwood decking, diamond decking, lapacho, green heart wood, pau lope decking to name several. See here for all the names used for ipe lapacho.

Most of this hardwood deck grows in South America and it is noted for extreme density and hardness (actually sinks in water).


Ipe decking wood is:

·       Five times harder than pressure treated yellow southern pine

·       Ipe decking carries the highest rating against rot and insects (termites).

·       Ipe deck wood exceeds the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for slip resistance when wet.

·       Ipe massive hardwood dek wood carries the highest rating for fire resistance.

·       Ipe deck wood is so durable that, left untreated, it will last over 40 years, and up to 100 years if deck oil is applied.

·       Ipe hardwood decks typically have a deep, rich brown luster with some pieces displaying a golden hue giving the wood beauty and character.


Whether you call it Ipe decking, Brazilian walnut flooring, green heart wood, or Pau Lope… it is a wonderful exotic hardwood flooring that gives lasting beauty year after year after year. Check here for more information about maintenance.


What are the negatives? Ipe decking wood is so dense that a carbide tipped saw blade is necessary. Ipe does rout nicely but it must be predrilled for fasteners.


Conclusion: There is no other natural material that will outlast or look as beautiful as Ipe deck wood. Ipe hardwood decks will remain smooth and splinter free as long as you own your deck!

Ipe deck wood provides the beauty of wood without the hassles of the high maintenance pressure treated decking. Ipe decking is beauty in wood… and extremely low maintenance.
