Process Overview for Ipe Deck Care

Ipe Deck Care Package

Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at one of our annual maintenance accounts for a home that has 7 ipe decks. The one shown here is the largest one on the house. It is northeast facing and receives sun only in the morning, with full lakeside exposure. Of course, snow and ice sit on it all winter.

The deck is 9 years old now. We pre-finished it when it was new and have maintained it since. Each year, it comes back better and easier than the last.

    Hi Scott, what product are using each year on the deck for cleaning and oiling? Thanks, Sam

      Hi Sam, we generally use an appropriate mix of bleach and water, followed by a neutralizer. It varies based upon situation, in terms of the bleach mix strength and which neutralizer.
