With luxurious dark red, espresso brown and olive hues, ipe creates decks that last a lifetime. Architects and engineers spec 2x6 ipe for boardwalks and areas that experience heavy-duty use. Why? Becuase our thicker, more durable boards increase the strength and longevity of any outdoor project. You can also use this product for your deck's joist structure or for extra design elements such as pergolas and docks. We sand both surfaces and ease the edges so each board you install will create an attractive, smoother project.
