Project Details

In this latest project we were contacted by a local Jupiter Island homeowner looking to update his porch and pool deck with Ipe decking. His renovation was underway and his idea to add an Ipe deck would be the finishing touch to make his home stand out from the rest. This customer came to admire Ipe after visiting a neighbor with a similar deck. When deciding who to go with he wanted to keep it local. He was right! We made sure to review his plans and supply the right amount of Ipe wood with little to no wastage. Each piece was notched with grooves for the Deck Wise hidden fastener system. This allows for easier installation of hardwood decking since there is no pre-drilling required. The Deck Wise Hidden fastener system also gives any deck a cleaner look once installed.

After the installation was complete the customer confirmed his choice to go with Ipe wood supplied by Carib Teak, Inc. was the best decision.

Ipe also known as Iron Wood

Ipe wood is a heavy, durable and stable wood primarily used in exterior applications such as decking and handrail. Ipe wood’s characteristics makes it able to withstand all outdoor elements and with proper treatment and care can last a lifetime.
