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.

Deck Design of the Week – The Belmont Street Lofts

Deck Design of the Week

The Belmont Street Lofts in Portland, Oregon

The first thing you’ll notice when you see the pictures of the Belmont Street Lofts is that there is no visible use of decking. However, what you will see is how the architectural firm Froelich Consulting Engineers created this mixed-use commercial project with ipe. These mixed-use lofts really stand out with the use of rainscreens and ipe siding.

Benefits of ipe siding include:

  • Durability even in the most brutal environmental conditions
  • Ipe maintains its strength over time
  • It is a natural product
  • Totally maintenance free
  • Contains absolutely no chemicals or preservatives
  • All of our Ipe Rainscreens & Siding is free of any chemically produced additives
