A patio is your home away from home. It’s a place to escape where all the worries and stress of everyday life melt away. The perfect way to turn your patio into this get away is to use hardwood. Wood has a beautiful welcoming feel that relaxes and comforts. This characteristic is embedded into our Ipe wood, which made it the reason why a Florida homeowner chose it for her patio remodel.
Ipe was used in every aspect of this patio remodeling, which featured creative applications such as benches, showers, and wall sidings. Its mechanical specifications came into consideration since Ipe has a 75 year lifespan and strong resistance to mold, decay, rot, and termites. These features became extremely important because it was used for a fully functional outdoor shower. The water coupled with its vapor would warp and possibly rot other species of wood, but not Ipe.
All the creative and unique features that this project encompasses could only be accomplished with Ipe. The resort style bench, shower, and siding needed the characteristics that only Ipe provides. Choose Advantage Ipe™ like this homeowner did, to build the patio of your dreams without breaking the piggy bank.
