With innumerable choices of wood available today for decking, many prefer installing the IPE decking for its durable and cost-effective nature. What make the ipe decking most-sought after is its beautiful, walnut hue and also its excellent resistance properties to problems such as termites, molds and fungi.
The Brazilian walnut, comes from the deep confines of the rain forests of southern Brazil which possess a subtropical temperature and therefore, quite a challenge for a tree to grow. Their habitat itself makes these Brazilian walnut trees much more resistance to problems faced by other types of woods such as retention of moisture or mold and fungi.
Being in a habitat where rain and sunshine play hide and seek all day long, the tree has endured all that is necessary to last for innumerable years as a deck. Its beautiful texture, which gives the wood its name, is not only special but also offer an excellent camouflage for defects, if any on its surface.
Not only are the IPE decks resistant to moisture and temperature changes, they are also not affected by external factors such as the growth of microbes on it. Also, the wooden surface, with all its curves and folds, come in varying shades of brown to red, depending upon the tree. So, with its varying shades and unique texture, you can choose and install an IPE deck flooring to match up with your exteriors or the garden furniture that you have placed on the deck.
Check with your landscape planner to ensure they have a genuine and trustworthy supplier of IPE wood, to get complete benefits from the endeavor.
