It creates a gorgeous deck that will give you unsurpassed durability and low maintenance.
Ipe’s beauty is breath taking. To keep the new look, A Mezmers oil application is recommended once a year for the first 3 to 4 years to allow the oils to adsorb into the wood and protect from water penetration. This also gives the decking a luxurious dark look.
