Ipe Deck Washing, Mahogany & Hardwood Maintenance Cleaning, Sealing, Repairs in MD, VA
Building decks with hard woods like ipe (e’pay), cambara, mahogany, Pau Lope and purpleheart, has become increasingly popular among homeowners. Accordingly, the wood’s durability, resistance to decay as well as to insect attack weighs heavily in the deck building decision. Despite being challenging to install (cut, drill shape etc.) because of the density and hardness associated with exotic hardwoods, it’s still a really popular choice. Actually, ipe wood is so heavy that ipe it will actually sink in water! Regardless, these beautiful decks still need care, and services like ipe and mahogany deck washing and sealing are an important part of maintaining your investment.
Ipe & Mahogany Deck Washing, Sealing, Repairs
It’s a fact that ipe, cambara, and mahogany are used more commonly for decking material because of their durability. Interestingly, teak and balau are used mostly for outdoor furniture for decks and patios. Some furniture companies are also producing outdoor furniture made from ipe and cambara.
Still, those who want the ultimate outdoor space understand that mainteance has a cost. The washing and sealing of decks built with these woods requires special attention and knowledge of the wood. Just because ipe is a hardwood, does not mean that ipe deck washing and sealing can be done by a novice. Unfortunately, if the incorrect product is applied to hardwood the results are disastrous and expensive to fix. Hardwoods are dense in structure and require different maintenance than softer woods do. Regardless of the product applied, sealers will not last as long on ipe as they might on a PT pine deck, due to the lack of porosity.
