Ipe hardwood decking is exceptionally durable and long-lasting, with a lifespan of 40 to 50 years. This deck boasts not only the beauty of exotic Brazilian hardwood, but a custom wood-framed railing with picket infill. The black, low-profile pickets offer an unimpeded view from the deck out into the yard beyond. Further customization of this deck includes extra wide steps, deck lighting, and a built-in bench for additional seating for entertaining.
