IPE Maintenance Toronto

IPE decking brings together a highly durable material with beauty that’s tough to match. Compared to other deck materials on the market, IPE is heavily favoured by commercial and residential customers alike.

What is IPE Wood?

If you’re considering hiring a deck building service in Toronto to build you a deck for your commercial property, the material you choose is important. It’s got to be able to handle the foot traffic, withstand weather, and be able to take everything that comes with a commercial deck. You’ve also got color and design considerations to make. IPE is one of the more adaptable materials out and we at GTA Decks can help you in maintaining your IPE decking. Here’s more information.

IPE decks are built from – you guessed it! – IPE wood which is otherwise referred to as Brazilian walnut. There are many, many advantages to choosing this wood, including the fact that it’s dense, durable, and aesthetically gorgeous. As your deck contractor, these are some of the reasons IPE decking is recommended. The way it can withstand Toronto weather, including our winters, is also very impressive. It’s almost the perfect deck wood material.

Benefits of IPE Wood

  • In business, appearances count for a lot. We know that. Thankfully, aesthetics and performance aren’t mutually exclusive when it comes to IPE. The dark hues of this wood make for a distinctive, beautiful look. Brazilian walnut is also known to contain a large amount of natural oils which further add luster you won’t find in other woods.
  • IPE is resistant to snow, rain, and moisture, can withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, and it is immune to mold, mildew, and other types of decay.
  • IPE has a large amount of oil inside of it which increases its water resistance while also repelling insects. There’s no need to spray insecticides or any toxins in the air to ward off insects. You also won’t have to worry about insects eating through the wood and causing damage.
  • IPE wood is hard and dense, one of the densest woods available in Canada for decking. IPE has the same fire-resistant rating as steel and concrete.
  • Assuming your IPE is properly maintained over the years, it could last 3 decades or more. The average lifespan for IPE wood is 75 years, in fact!

This isn’t all to say IPE decking doesn’t come with some maintenance requirements and challenges. Because of the natural oils in the wood, most commercial properties will retain the natural look of the Brazilian walnut. IPE wood cannot be painted however it can be oiled and stained. The initial cost upfront is also higher as it’s a more expensive, higher quality material. Despite this, money’s saved over the course of decades as maintenance costs, repair and replacement, and insect prevention methods aren’t anywhere near as high as other woods.

I feel very fortunate to have chosen GTA DECKS as I am very happy with the quality of their work and with the way they communicated with me... throughout the process. The guys were respectful and professional and continued working as well as keeping the area clean under harsh weather conditions. They were very fast and efficient too: removed the old 800 sq ft deck in three hours on the first day, packed up the debris and disposed of them using their own bins. They installed the new Trex composite deck much faster than I expect and it turned out beautiful! I can’t wait for the patio season to show off my backyard to my friends and family! I highly recommend GTA DECKS for the high quality of their craftsmanship, their speed, and professionalism. Thank you guys!read more
