    I live in England and have IPE decking. I have searched the internet for IPE oil as it is rated the best oil to put on my decking but have been unable to find a supplier . Could u pls advise me if there are any stockists in England that I can buy this oil from or any in the U.S.A willing to ship it to England . Many Thanks Peter Horne .

    I’m not sure if there are any suppliers in England. Unfortunately, there are regulations that make it very difficult to ship Ipe Oil overseas, so ordering from the U.S. may prove difficult.

    I just finished applying ipe oil 1 year after the deck was installed. I had put a coating on it a few months after installation but it did not do well–the wood was too new. This time it looked great–until the hard rain came about 15 hours after completion. It of course looks like hell now–where the water puddled it really looks bad but a lot of the deck still looks ok. The bad places really look like very little oil is on the wood. Do you think I could apply the oil to only those areas or do I need to clean it an try again? Do I need to sand at this point? It is hard to predict the weather in NC–on days where there is a 0 percent chance of rain we still stand a chance of getting a quick shower so weather forecasts don’t mean much.

    Sometimes weather can cause problems if you’re trying to finish your deck. You can try re applying oil in the area where the rain stood the longest, but it may look consistent with the rest of the deck. If that doesn’t work well, try scrubbing your deck with mild dish soap and warm water, allow it to dry and then apply Ipe Oil again. With good luck you’ll have dry climate for a day or two and your deck will look great once again.

    If those methods fail, you will have to use a cleaner & brightener for hardwoods like the DeckWise or Messemer’s brand and Oil the entire deck.

    Hope this helps you out Al,
