Sealing IPE decks
I am planning on sealing the cut ends of IPE with anchor seal, however I have mixed opinions of sealing the tops of the deck boards. I would like to maintain the rich dark color of ipe and rather not let it weather grey. I have heard stories of the IPE didn't absorb the seal and people having huge hassles sanding the deck afterwards.
I have also heard products like Penofin and Mesmers work great. any experience out there?
