Ipe Decking Chicago Raises the Bar in Low-Maintenance Decking
Why should you choose Ipe for your flooring project, be it a deck or other type of flooring for your home or commercial project?
Ipe has benefits that make it the world's leading decking material. Ipe hardwood, often mispelled, is also known or referenced by some as Epay , Epi, Ipea, Epee, or Eepay. Ipe (genus Tabebuia) is actually pronounced "EE-pay".With resilience and distinct beauty, your Ipe deck or other project will stand up to the harsh climates of Chicago and resist problems such as termite & insect damage, mold caused by humidity, and deterioration caused by snow and hot summer days.
Is it any wonder why architects and designers across the world feature Ipe Wood in many high-end homes and commercial builds?
