Ipe Decking and Furniture
Ipe is world renown as the premium natural material for decking. It is hard, dense, and resistant to the ravages of the elements such as rot, UV degradation and insect pests. Ipe Decking installations by OHC have withstood hurricane force winds.
Ipe is also one of the most beautiful natural materials available. Its fine grain and rich color enhances any design. Ipe is a hardwood tree of the genus Tabebuia. Some common ways this hardwood is referenced when misspelled is epay , epi, ipea, epee, or eepay. It is actually pronounced "ee-pay".We purchase our Ipe from South America, encouraging responsible, sustainable and renewable forestry practices.
