Ipe is one of the finest natural wood decking materials on the market today. Thompson Mahogany Company has been a leading importer of Ipe decking for 20 years. We maintain one of the largest inventories of Ipe in the United States and have a wholesale customer base throughout the US and Canada.
Pronounced “e-pay”, Ipe is widely recognized as one of the hardest and most durable timber species in the world. Its wide color variation provides a striking appearance on decking, siding and other uses. It is naturally durable and resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications. It not only lasts a long time, but has the beauty of an interior hardwood. Ipe is a popular natural alternative to PVC or composite products. It outlasts other popular wood decking species such as treated Pine, Cedar, Redwood and Douglas Fir.
We offer a wide selection of Ipe sizes used for decking boards, joists, treads, risers, skirting, posts and hand rails, as well as heavy timbers for boardwalks and structural applications. We also carry pre-grooved (PG) and tongue-and-groove (T&G) profiles, and offer custom millwork for special profiles or sizes. Ipe deck facing is air-dried (AD) and for outdoor use only. Thompson Mahogany also stocks all the accessories – fasteners, sealers, cleaners, and finishes – to complete your deck.
