Ipe (pronounced ee-pay) is one of the best quality materials available in the deck building industry. Sometimes called ironwood or Brazilian walnut, Ipe is a dense and tightly grained wood that is deep brown, red or amber in colour. Whether oiled or left untreated It looks clean and provides a natural resistance to fire and pests. Ipe can be a difficult material to build decks, and doing so requires extensive experience by professional deck contractors, like the ones at Karpentor! Our deck builders have more than 25 years of experience building ipe decks in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Kitchener / Waterloo, Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough, Waterdown, Cambridge / Guelph, St. Catharines and Milton, Ontario.

Ipe decks are gaining a lot of attention by homeowners and contractors for home deck projects; although its more costly than other woods typically used in deck building, the investment is worth it due to its much lower long term maintenance and repair costs.
