Advantage Ipe™ (pronounced EE-pay) is the finest-quality hardwood available. From the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk to your own backyard, Ipe decking is proven to keep its integrity and last longer than any other decking material. Ipe is naturally resistant to rot and is over 8 times harder than traditional redwood. These natural qualities mean an Ipe deck can last 75+ years without constant staining or refinishing. Ipe decking is responsibly harvested from managed forests to provide a truly renewable resource. For added peace of mind, Ipe also features up to a class A rating for flame spread, making it a great option for homes in dry brush areas, rooftops, and other fire-prone areas.
