Tigerwood Decking in San Francisco, CA

Decking in California

This Tigerwood deck will be an attractive place for patrons to sit, eat, and relax.

Why is Tigerwood a great decking option for California homes and businesses?

For starters, Tigerwood is instantly attractive. Many of our customers in California have told us that they enjoy working with such an easy material because it cuts labor costs and install time. We’ve even had customers call us to say that the second their commercial project was completed they saw an immediate increase in business thanks to more walk in traffic and customer interest.

It’s not hard to imagine people walking by this pizza parlor in San Francisco and staring at it.  With those rich colors of rusty oranges, brown, and dark black streaks you would only need one attempt to guess this wood’s name. From California to New York, you can find more and more outside commercial projects using exotic  and eco-friendly decking materials like Tigerwood.

Ipe Decking Replaces Aluminum Deck in New Jersey

After years of wrangling and dissatisfaction with their metal deck, the residents of Ventnor, NJ finally got their wish. They replaced their aluminum deck with one made of ipe decking.

According to the Courier Post, “People constantly complain about the aluminum,” said Ventnor Mayor Theresa Kelly. “The slightest moisture makes it slippery for walking, jogging or bike riding. We were completing the boardwalk anyway so we thought we should complete it all.”

That’s not sales talk. That’s after years of use and experience from everyday people.

Check out the rest of the article to see pictures of the ipe deck installation and to read more about why the city of Ventnor is replacing their metal deck.

Green Bay Chooses Ipe Decking for Major Commercial Project

Great news out of Wisconsin! The city of Green Bay is well on its way to completed a major municipal project called the City Deck.

Of course, this news wouldn’t make this blog without the additional nugget that this commercial project is using ipe decking.

Yes, this is NOT Green Bay! Just another awesome pic of ipe decking;-)

Yes, this is NOT Green Bay! Just another awesome pic of ipe decking;-)

Think about it…

What other hardwood decking will be able to, year after year, withstand the bitter cold and heavy snow of a Green Bay winter? Pressure treated decking? Heck no! Composite decking? Yeah, right. The plastic will delaminate, then soak up water like a sponge until it finally disintegrates. Ugh. The hardworking people of Green Bay deserve better than that and I’m glad to see that they did their research and chose the perfect decking material for their specific climate.

At Advantage Trim & Lumber, our ipe decking can be purchased at wholesale prices. You can order wholesale decking is available to anyone who needs a truckload or shipping container’s worth of this exotic hardwood.

Ipe Decking used for New Colorado Bridge

The town of Silverthorne, Colorado recently announced that their newest bridge over the Blue River will use ipe wood. According the this news article on the Blue River Bridge, they chose to use ipe because of its “70 year life expectancy.” I bet they will be thrilled 70 years from now when the future citizens realize that they will have at least another 30 years of use out of their ipe bridge choice!

Once again, this proves that for high end applications, or commercial applications that require a resilient hardwood, this exotic hardwood from Brazil is the best choice. The town of Silverthorne has chosen a wood that can and will hold up against the harsh winters that are sure to bring snow and a ton of moisture to the area.

If you’re wondering what other bridges would use ipe, how about the Brooklyn Bridge? Truly one of America’s greatest architectural landmarks, the Brooklyn Bridge walkway is truly a breathtaking experience.

So, if you’re looking for a wholesale lumber supplier of exotic hardwoods and are sick of getting obscenely priced bids, contact us.

Wholesale Ipe Decking Chosen for Boynton Beach Boardwalk Renovation

Great news! In an effort to reinvigorate the local economy, the city of Boynton Beach, FL has announced that it will be renovating some of its local parks. According to this article from the Sun-Sentinel, Oceanfront Park will be getting a face-lift as well. They will be replacing their boardwalk that is currently made from composite decking with ipe decking!

According to article, Executive Director of the Recreation and Parks Department, Wally Majors said that, “ipe is a strong, dense wood with very high wear durability in daily use, and is resistant to splintering and checking.”

He goes on to say some other glowing things about ipe, but I’ll let you read it for yourself:-)

Clearly, this decision by the city of Boynton Beach proves once again that when it comes to getting the most for your money, ipe decking is the best choice. Sure, they could have kept their current boardwalk, but they made the decision for a reasons that are, quite frankly, practical.

Cities across the country have chosen ipe for their boardwalks because of the indisputable face that it is a superior decking product and will save the city maintenance and repair costs for decades to come.

Ipe decking is such a reliable, durable, and YES, renewable wood material that it is gaining increased notoriety throughout the world. In the United States, this exotic hardwood is being used in a variety of commercial applications. Local cities and municipalities that need commercial decking are even starting to use ipe in eco-friendly parks and bridges. In doing research I have found architects using ipe for both siding and sunscreens.

From hotels, to resorts, to restaurants, to office buildings, there are many commercial decking options available. By far, the one clear cut favorite among architects, designers, and business owners is ipe decking and Brazilian walnut flooring. The main reason for this is because commercial ipe can be both cultivated and harvested from environmentally safe and sound forestry practices.
