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.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I live in a typical east end semi and this past summer we interviewed with different contractors to build a new back deck, we knew we... wanted to go with composite material as we wanted something that would last a long time and that was low maintenance. After meeting with 5 different companies, we decided to hire GTA decks. When Serge came to see the site, he was professional, informative and efficient. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns with ease and confidence.He did warn us that the permit process may take a few weeks which it did but once the permit was approved, Jason from Serge's team was quick to start the project and got it done within 2 weeks. He was friendly, professional and very skilled! Serge also let us know the aluminum railings would take a while to come in but once it did, his team was ready to install them immediately.Overall, Serge was very helpful and he definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to decks. We did have to follow up a few times regarding scheduling and timing, however Serge was on top of it and made sure everything was transparent. We would highly recommend GTA decks, we enjoyed working with them and most importantly we love our new deck!read more

With so many deck builders out there, we finally settled with GTA Decks, as Serge provided professional service throughout and the deck was completed... with care. We have a walkout basement so the deck is 9ft off the ground, Serge took care of applying for a permit etc. With the pandemic, the city took a while to process the papers, however, drawings had to be revised and re-submitted to include a staircase to the garden for obvious reasons as this was not in our initial plan. But once it was all approved, Serge and his team completed the project. We are looking forward to enjoying our deck this summer. GTA Decks is top quality and you will not be disappointed.read more

We are happy with our new PVC Wolf Decking installation. Serge did an excellent job on preparing 3D drawings and getting all necessary city... architectural and building permits designed/approved. The GTA Decks crew arrived 4 days before the job was scheduled and they finished as promised. All carpenters worked meticulously and very detailed.
