Ipe Oil Will Make Your Hardwood Deck Shine
Hello! My name is Becky with AdvantageLumber.com and this is Ipe Oil Hardwood Deck Finish.
Have you ever wondered how to maintain the gorgeous color of your exotic hardwood deck, but didn’t know which product to use, or how to do it? Not to worry! Keeping the color is easier than you think. Our exotic hardwood does not require you to strip, sand, power wash, or any other labor-intensive maintenance that softer woods require.
Ipe Oil Hardwood Deck Finish is the product that you’ve been looking for to keep those luscious hues shining, and to extend the life of your deck. When applied right after installation, this product will make your deck shine.
If you wait too long after installation to apply Ipe Oil, the color can still be brought back! All you need to do it sand down the surface of the decking and apply the ipe oil, and watch while it works its magic and brings back the gorgeous colors of your decking that you first fell in love with.
This low V.O.C, linseed oil based finish is specially formulated for exotic hardwoods and provide your deck with superior protection from UV rays. Ipe Oil penetrates the densest of exotic hardwoods, while protecting and conditioning for a natural appearance.
Not only does Ipe Oil provide you with a beautiful finish, it also enhances the exotic hardwood’s natural water repellent qualities to reduce the chances of warps and cracks.
After you install your new hardwood deck, apply a coat of ipe oil, even if you the desired end result is a patina deck. This will still give your decking an added layer of protection. If you want to keep the color apply ipe oil annually, depending on the climate, you may be able to apply every two years.
If you are installing hardwood decking in a low ventilation application, finishing the all four sides of each board will give you better protection.
