Ipe vs. Thermory
First post of what I anticipate may be many as we embark upon a number of projects.
We are less than 24 hours away from going before our town's Historic Commission to request approval to remove and reconstruct our large, wraparound front porch. Our home is a colonial dated to 1901 and the HC commission here in town is very tough on material choices.
We had settled on using Ipe for the flooring.
However, we JUST got an email from the contractor saying he thinks we should instead consider this stuff called Thermory.
I'm really irritated that this is coming totally out of the blue - we've been finalizing plans with him for over a month already.
But my husband thinks we should perhaps consider it. If, and only if, the HC allows us to gain approval with an "either-or" materials list.
Anyway, would greatly appreciate ay feedback/thoughts on this Theromy product. I can't seem to find much.
