Ipe Decking – Stepping It Up a Notch

Ipe (spelled ipe and pronounced “ee-pay”), also called Brazilian walnut, is a beautiful exotic wood from South America. Ipe wood structures are hard, strong, and naturally resistant to rot, abrasion, weather, and insects. It is almost twice as dense as most woods and up to five times harder. It is medium to darker brown in color, like a mahogany, so not only lasts a long time but has the beauty of a fine interior wood. If Ipe lumber is allowed to patina, color can be brought back to its original shade with the use a cleaner and brightener. Ipe wood lumber has become a very popular and inexpensive alternative to teak lumber.

Absolute Construction is a multi-year Parade of Homes Gold Medal winner in Chatham county North Carolina, who builds award winning custom houses in Pittsboro, Chatham County, NC specifically in Chapel Ridge.

From one of our recent happy homeowners: 

” I waited 31 years to build my Dream Home.  The first time I met with Lisa, Nelu and Joe I knew they would be the ones to make my Dream come true. Experienced, Professional, Patient and just plain nice as can be !!!  Being a Retired Mortgage Broker/Banker, with 40 years of construction experience, I have never experienced such a Professional team. Meeting all their vendors was an absolute pleasure and reassurance that the work would get done and done right !!!!!” Eileen W.
