T&G Ipe porch ceiling/ soffit
Hello all you smart ipe people,
We would like to use 1"x4" T&G ipe for a 3'x12' dropped ceiling/soffit on the (outside) enterance to our house.
My question is how best to install it.
Screw, ss nails w/gun(if even possible)?
If screw, do you do it in the T or the G? I have seen both suggestions on the websites of "good" ipe distributors. Glue no glue?
My next question is whether to have it milled to what someone suggested with a V groove, or installed with a straight edge.
We live in Sothern California and have had great results with our deck- no problems at all.
Any help would be so great.
