KENNESAW, Ga., March 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Ipe Woods United States (https://ipewoods.com/) recently opened a new warehouse and contractor showroom in kennesaw, expanding its presence in the continental United States as one of the largest and most trusted suppliers of wholesale exotic ipe wood building materials.

The new kennesaw location is an important part of this chain, as we proudly continue to grow our already strong presence here in the United States. Anyone who comes to us looking for Ipe wood knows that there is no better natural material available for exterior construction.

Also called Brazilian walnut, ipe is often used for projects such as decks and porches because it is exceptionally resistant to mold, rot and weather. Found in dark brown and medium brown colors, ipe is one of the 10 hardest woods in the world according to the Janka hardness test, with an extremely dense and tight grain – so dense that even termites will strain to avoid it. Ipe is also known to age beautifully, lasting over 70 years under typical outdoor conditions. Other benefits include:
- Because ipe wood is sourced from places where extreme rainfall is normal, the wood has developed a natural resistance to water and extreme weather, as well as resistance to rot and mildew, ensuring that Ipe wood decks and porches last for many decades.
- Ipe wood is naturally fire resistant, one of the few materials like steel and concrete that can boast an A rating.
- The overall hardness cannot be overstated – more than twice that of white oak. Ipe is often compared to concrete, with unrivaled dimensional stability, longevity and multiple waterproofing properties. Ipe wood is also durable and environmentally friendly because it is so durable.
- And most importantly for consumers, Ipe wood is both profitable and economically sound. Pressure treated lumber typically lasts between 5 and 7 years, with most composite decking beginning to corrode severely after 8 or 9 years. Even plastic bridges fade and start to corrode in about 10 years. Ipe panels rarely, if ever, need replacing after proper installation, virtually guaranteeing projects for over 40 years or more depending on weather conditions.
