About

Welcome to the official Advantage Trim & Lumber Company blog!

Ipe Decking Supplier

As the leading direct importer of ipe and other premium hardwoods for nearly 20 years, we wanted to create an online resource that both the general public and those in the industry could turn to whenever they had questions or wanted to learn more about the lumber industry issues. While many people think that buying premium lumber and decking materials is a simple process, there are a lot of factors to consider. For instance, recent news has shed light on the fact that composite decking and pressure treated decking are not just inferior decking products. Unfortunately, while many people feel that a composite deck is a better investment because it costs less than a hardwood deck, there can be some adverse health consequences to installing a composite deck. Another key issue that Advantage Trim & Lumber has been leading the way on is eco-friendly forestry practices that help sustain the environment. Because we are dedicated to this long-term cause, Advantage is certified with the Forest Stewardship Council and is a member of the United States Green Building Council.

In addition to selling premium ipe wood, Advantage also offers a wide selection of quality domestic and exotic hardwoods. We also sell high-quality

flooring and lumber. Advantage Trim & Lumber has the resources and the knowledge to supply any number of domestic and exotic hardwoods for any sized project. One of the major reasons why we continue to grow is because we offer the best ipe decking materials anywhere. Whether you’re looking for exotic hardwoods like ipe, teak, cumaru, garapa, or domestic woods such as oak, pine, or ash, Advantage Trim & Lumber has what you need. If you’re looking to acquire a LEED credit, we also sell FSC Certified Ipe and other FSC certified wood.

We hope you enjoy or blog and share it with your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues. Our customers and partners throughout the world tell us that they trust the fact that everyone is knowledgeable, friendly, and able to handle their questions and order with ease and professionalism.

    I have an IPE deck that is 6 – 7 years old. I try not to put terra cotta pots (or other pots) directly on the deck, but over the years, there are times I get careless and put a pot on the deck. Unfortunately, this leaves stains. These stains do not come out. I hoped that with time, they would disappear, but don’t.
    Does anyone have a method of removing these stains?
