Ipe Oil® vs WiseCoat®

Hardwood decking has a warmth that is incomparable to any other decking material. The trade-off is higher maintenance because regional weather conditions can take a toll in just months. With hardwoods lasting well over a decade or two, utilizing the correct finish is extremely important.

That's where Ipe Oil® and WiseCoat® finishes come in, providing a layer of protection that can keep your hardwood deck, siding, fence or furniture looking great for years.

Each of these products has an individual unique finish that creates distinctive wood grain patterns. For example, the hardness of woods varies widely, so does the color tone of any hardwood. The same species of hardwood boards can have many different color variations. You, as the homeowner, need to decide what outcome is desired depending on your hardwood species.
