Decking Ideas

When using our Ipe decking or Garapa decking, here are some ideas for your next Ipe or Garapa deck. There are so many different ways people use decks, such as places for pools, hot tubs, firepits, and multi-level, single-level, and barbeque areas. Ipe decking is known for its ability to weather better than any other material used for decking, and Garapa is a close second. It is excellent for all these purposes because of its fire rating and common uses around water. This is because the density of the wood makes it so water doesn’t penetrate.

Choosing a Reputable, Ethical, and Legal Supplier

Exotic lumber, and especially Ipe wood, is required to be imported into the U.S.A from its source(s). Doing business in third-world countries can bring up many legal and ethical questions. Every board sold by Buy Ipe Direct complies with the 1917 Lacey Act for importation worldwide, as well as all Local, State, and Federal guidelines in the countries we operate in. This means that from the source to your project site, you do not need to worry about the lumber you receive. We only conduct business with well-established and reputable companies and person(s). This also ensures that the quality of all lumber material is held to a higher standard, as the companies and people we do business with do not mix in low-quality material. A company that stands behind its product ensures a smoother and more hassle-free project, and time is money.

Custom Hardwood Lumber Milling

Custom milling is available on all our hardwoods. The most common milling for Ipe and Garapa is for decking to groove it for use with hidden clips. It is known as either “grooved” or “pregrooved”; both are the same. This is just one of the hundreds of ways we can customize your order using our state-of-the-art molders. Other milling customizations we offer are, ripping, surfacing, re-sawing, grangripping, sanding, chopping, end sawing, and more. Contact us directly for all your custom milling order needs.

Choosing Ipe for Your Deck

Undoubtedly, Ipe is the absolute best lumber in the world for decking. It lasts longer, is beautiful, and requires little or no maintenance. Just holding a piece of Ipe decking in your hand, you can feel the density and quality of this lumber. We encourage anyone thinking about other options to look into the facts of each potential material, such as heat retention, decay, mold, susceptibility to termites and other critters, and maintenance.
