Easy Installation

Step 1: Apply a vapor barrier or housewrap.
Step 2: Attach furring strips 16” apart on center.
Step 3: Predrill for easy installation.
Step 4: Drive a 3” stainless steel screw through the predrilled hole to secure.
Step 5: Predrill the narrow protrusion at the top of the boards.
Step 6: Repeat this process as needed until siding installation is complete.

Long Term Durability

Ipe has been proven to outlast and outperform other siding options in the same installation. This hardwood has a lifespan of over 75 years. Just take a look at the Coney Island Boardwalk or the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Even now, reclaimed ipe from these boardwalks has been reused in other applications such as flooring and furniture.
