For a few years now, we have been sharing our tips on ipe deck oil finishing. Rule number 4 discusses the importance of maintaining the ipe deck annually.
This picture show’s one of our annual ipe deck oil finish masterpieces, which Todd insists on personally servicing. This one gets inspected and worked as needed in the spring and in the fall. If you maintain an ipe deck twice annually, it starts to become more like a fine wine, getting better with age. This deck is absolutely stunning. Twice annually may seem like high maintenance, but it is actually easier to do it twice than to wait and do it once, or wait longer and do the “do over”. The prep is very minimal in the bi-annual approach, and the results are astonishing. Having worked with this deck for 4 years now, Todd has declared it one of the pieces in his Topcoat portfolio that he is most proud of.
Would anyone NOT like to have their main entry deck looking like this at all times?
A properly maintained ipe deck is like a fine wine, it just gets better with age.
