where to buy ipe
I'm getting ready to pay someone to build my deck, and I want to use ipe. Read some positive comments here about ipedepot.com, dating from 2007. Has anyone used them recently, and are they still so highly recommended? I live in NC. Also, a local dealer told me he has a hard time getting ipe (could not find any pre-grooved) and suggested tigerwood. Is that a good idea? What about garapa? I know nothing about any of this; but what I want is a beautiful silvery grey deck like my friend's, with wood from a sustainable source. Thanks for any help!
