What if you could completely transform the look of a balcony in just one afternoon? What if you could accomplish this without having to spend a ton of money?
Using our 20x20 Ipe Decking Tiles a one-day balcony/terrace renovation is easy. To demonstrate how simple the entire process is, we recently visited a home renovation project. At the job site, we interviewed a professional installer about his experience. As you'll see in this video, the result speaks for itself.

What Can Rustic Decking Do for You? Plenty.
Rustic (2nd/Character/B-grade) Ipe decking has many practical applications. Many buy from our inventory to build benches, tables, and other outdoor furniture. But what about something that actually adds value to a home? For instance, what if you could build a boat dock with our Rustic Ipe decking? After all, it's durable, affordable and will outlast composite docks at a fraction of the cost. It also lasts decades longer than your traditional pressure treated docks.
It's for those reasons and more that one of our customers purchased our Rustic Ipe. We recently visited his home and asked this homeowner and DIY dock builder about his experience. Check out the video and see why our Rustic Ipe is such a great deal.

When is the Best Time to Inspect Your Deck? NOW!
Now is the best time to check out the overall condition of your deck. For new decks, simply checking out the overall condition of your joists and connecting fasteners is often the most you'll have to do. However, for cedar, redwood, pressure treated and composite decks, 10 years old and above, you'll definitely need to take a bit more time ensuring your deck and joist system is in top condition.
