Another Beautiful Boardwalk Made of Ipe Decking? You Bet.

The Treasure Island Hotel & Casino Ipe Boardwalk in Las Vegas

Ask anyone who's visited Las Vegas in the summer about the heat. The exhausted look you get in response will tell you just how intense the heat is in Sin City.

Under a climate that intense, can you imagine the performance of a plastic, composite, or softer wood? Warping, twisting, cracking, peeling; those are just some of the problems people in normal climates experience with these deck materials. Imagine this heat intensifying over days, weeks, months, and years!

This is why Ipe decking and other harder-than-average woods like Cumaru and Massaranduba are chosen. Take the Treasure Island Hotel's boardwalk. To this day, it's made of Ipe and its dimensional stability can be summed up in one word: Amazing.

"How does Ipe perform in cold weather climates?"

That's a question many people asked us during the recent International Builders' Show in Las Vegas. The answer we gave time and again was, "Ipe holds up better than any other artificial or traditional decking material, period."

How can we be so sure? It's simple. Ipe has been used successfully for decades in some of the harshest conditions in the world. From the Middle East to Canada, Ipe is proven to handle any and all climates. Want to learn what makes Ipe the best material?
