New Ipe decking is cupping
We are building a new home in Dallas, Texas. We chose Ipe for our front and back porches, both covered and it was professionally installed in August. Initially the cupping was only on the edges where they received direct sun (our biggest challenge in the beginning was how the boards changed size and had large uneven space between each.) Now, after the oil has been applied and the weather is cooler, IT HAS MAJOR CUPPING, almost to the point that you could trip on some (photos will be added to this post tomorrow.)
Would appreciate any feedback because we have time to have the product removed and get something else. We are not living in the house yet.
