The benefits of IPE as decking material
IPE decking is a popular choice for several reasons. First and most important is its incredible density. It is one of the few woods on earth that can sink into water. It is extremely tough and resistant to many of the things that often affect wood. Moisture, insects and mould stand no chance. Even more impressive is that it has the same fire rating as steel and concrete. This makes it usable in areas where there are strict regulations regarding fire hazards in your backyard. Finally, it makes IPE decking very durable. The average lifespan of an IPE terrace is two to three decades. If you take good care of it, it can be even longer. It outlasts virtually every other alternative decking material.
The great durability of IPE has a few disadvantages. You need quality drills to pre-drill every hole. It takes time to build up properly, more than other hardwoods. The cost are also somewhat higher compared to some other hardwoods and especially to non-hardwood alternatives. But with the much longer life of IPE decking, it is an investment well worth the money. Due to our invisible mounting clip system you can build the most beautiful deck you have ever seen.
