Ipe, Brazilian Walnut, Lapacho Ironwoods Supplier
Ipe wood decking is the gold standard for all hardwoods. What makes Ipe so great, is that this wood is naturally fire, bug and water-resistant. Utilizing strategic partnerships and/or purchasing large amounts of wood help us so that we may save you money on not only the wood itself but the shipping also. As the premier online supplier, you can expect the best customer service and quality wood. No matter if you are using our wood for decking, siding, fencing or other projects know that you can trust us.
Sustainably Harvested Ipe
As a company of integrity, our buyers make every attempt to purchase sustainable Ipe. We are members of companies aimed at protecting the rainforests such as the FSC® and IWPA. If you buy FSC® Ipe and get the chain of custody certification, this can certainly give you some peace of mind. We aim for sustainably harvested wood in every aspect we can. Know that Ipe Woods USA attempts to verify all our wood is sustainably harvested. Our company will terminate relationships immediately with anyone found to be involved with non-sustainable and/or illegal harvesting.
Planting 5 Trees for Every Oder
We know people get very concerned with saving the rainforest. So are we, we love trees and air! So we plant 5 trees in Brazil for every order. A small gesture of our commitment to the environment. Before contacting us with concerns of deforestation caused by logging we urge you to educate yourself on the main causes of deforestation. Which logging accounts for less than 3% in recent studies. Placing a stamp on lumber is not preventing deforestation. Buying from a company that claims to be certified but still sells non-certified does not make much sense to us either. We do not participate in programs that gather a lot of money, pay a lot of people and are not proven to be effective in reducing deforestation.

About Ipe Woods USA
Our company was named “Ipe” because that should really be the first option when using lumber outdoors. While Ipe decking is not the only option we offer, from a quality, longevity, and numbers standpoint it really is the wood you should choose for your customer or for yourself. The name of the company reflects our first choice for decking. Sometimes Ipe will not fit into you or a customer’s budget or for aesthetic reasons people choose other woods. But any contractor that really knows wood should at least be bringing Ipe to their customer’s attention. Our company is committed to providing the highest quality lumber. If you are a direct customer or contractor looking for more information on Ipe please read our fact section and watch our videos. We love talking about Ipe and all of its benefits so also do not hesitate to call us. Ipe Woods USA is a member of the International Wood Products Association.

Watch out for Misinformation
There is a lot of misinformation that surrounds the wood buying industry. Due to this, some companies promote things to make you think that they are the only ones that sell sustainably sourced Ipe. But many companies including ourselves, make every effort to ensure our Ipe is sourced responsibly. No company we know of will guarantee this by the way. Because of this, if they say they will you better get it in writing.
Some companies will tell you that they are the mill. While at the same time they hire other mills to mill their boards. Some companies will call themselves direct importers while they are selling brokered wood.

About Domestic and Exotic Hardwood Lumbers
The truth is unless you are in the wood industry it is nearly impossible to keep up with all the different types of exotic hardwood decking materials available and their characteristics. There are thousands of different types of wood sold. Ipe Woods USA sells over 30 types of hardwood lumber. So what makes one hardwood better than another? First of all longevity, second resistance to elements, and third maintenance.
When we think about choosing a material for our deck the first thing we want is for that deck to last. As a result, some types of wood are better suited for outdoor applications and will last longer. The truth is that Ipe does last longer than any other type of wood in this category. Even with no treatment, the wood can last over 75+ years. This makes it the best decking material for longevity. Even the closest comparisons are half the life of this. Making it once a lifetime purchase for most people.
Resistance to natural elements
If you want that deck to keep looking good you have to ask yourself what wood has a class A fire rating is so dense that it is resistant to checking, rot, bugs, splinters, decay, and mold? The answer is simple, no other wood will be able to resist natural elements, as well as Ipe, does. Paying a little bit extra for Ipe is almost like an insurance policy against all of these elements that seek to destroy your deck.
Ipe for decking, siding, and fencing does not require annual maintenance unless you are wanting to keep it a dark brown. Therefore making the annual cost of $0. Even synthetic decks require maintenance. Because of this, there is no material that is lower maintenance than Ipe. If you decide to let it go grey and change your mind, its nothing a light layer of sanding and oil will not fix.
