This is a nice ipe deck we installed that was designed by a designer friend of the owner. We originally were going to leave the ipe hardwood decking un-stained but then Thompson’s water seal reached out to us for marketing purposes. They have a new line of stains called Thompson’s Timber Oil and they needed new decks to stain for commercials and brochures. They knew we were the best in the business so they asked to use some of our freshly built decks. They chose this one and compensated both us and the owner to let them use it. This is the natural stain color and it came out beautifully.
