Ipe Wood Decking

Ipe Wood Decking: A Masterpiece of Nature

Experience the beauty and character of Ipe wood decking. Cherished for its magnificent color and strength, Ipe wood decking is also highly resistant to decay, mold, and insects. It is incredibly long lasting and weathers beautifully.

Far too much Ipe has been harvested illegally or in a manner that leads to deforestation. In contrast, TerraMai reclaims Ipe trees that have been standing in tropical reservoirs for decades, perfectly preserved. We expertly remove, dry, and mill these long-forgotten woods, delivering them to you as environmentally-positive Ipe wood decking and siding.

Source: Reclaimed from reservoirs in the tropics.


Colors: Beautiful deep brown that, left unfinished, ages gracefully into a soft, silver patina

Net Dimensions of Ipe Wood Decking: 7/8" thick x 4-1/2" wide x 6' to 12' random lengths

Millwork: Surfaced four sides (S4S). Eased four edges (E4E) at 1/8" radius. Available in both Square Edge profile, and Hidden Clip profile that has a 5/32" wide x 1/2" deep groove cut into the edge to accept various hidden clip fasteners.

Character: Mostly clear with occasional small tight knots and or marine borer hole up to 1/16" (1.5mm).  Proper acclimation and decking design is critical to a successful project. As with most exterior woods, over time and with exposure to the elements, Ipe may develop shallow surface checking. This does not affect structural performance of the material.

Hardware: For Square Edge profile, TerraMai recommends face screwing deck boards directly to joists using 2-1/4" #7 Stainless Steel deck screws, pre-drilling is required. Two screws per board per joist = 3.9 screws/SF w 16" OC Joist Spacing. TerraMai can provide optional hardwood plugs cut from the same species to hide screw heads.

Finish: Available with Exterior Oil on all faces, edges, and ends.

Certification: Water Reclaimed material - TerraMai Certified as sustainably harvested
