Membership Overview


3 Easy Ways to Take Your IPE Stress Away

Because no one really has time for “shot in the dark” online research of deck problems, we provide membership levels that are designed to provide you the support that you need to live happily with your ipe deck.

There are 3 different levels at which you can subscribe to and access our expert level information and support system 24 hours a day. Whether someone dumped the grease tray off the grill onto your ipe, or your contractor left your whole deck sticky with oil, memberships have your back.

1. Ipe a la carte Membership ($149/year)

This is a basic level, where you can stay informed on our time tested methods for ipe maintenance, as well as keeping you up to speed on what’s new in product and process for ipe. You will be able to engage directly with Scott here on the site, receiving priority answers to your specific questions about ipe deck ownership. Ideal for those considering a future ipe deck project.

2. Ipe Owner Membership ($249/year)

For the more serious ipe owner, whether you have just purchased a home with an aged ipe deck, or are in the process of having an ipe deck built, this is the level that will move you forward with the confidence that you are treating your ipe right for the long term, and the technical support to know how to do it yourself or hire out the work and properly supervise to get the results you need.
