This deck is 1,000 square feet of awesome. The decking is called ipe, which is pronounced ee-pay. It is the hardest most long lasting and most expensive tropical hardwood there is, or at least the most expensive commonly used hardwood. The railing utilizes stainless steel cables for the infill for a modern look, it is also the most expensive railing you can get. This deck upgrade was part of a larger remodel project that vastly increased the size and value of the home!
