Wood specie specification
Very elegant, Ipe Lapacho is a wood from Brazil known for its solidity and its brilliant colours: deep chestnut brown with very light reddish brown highlights. The veinage shows medium contrast and the grain varies in thickness from fine to medium. Ipe weathers over time and reacts to light exposure by getting darker with light yellowish highlights.
To embellish your exterior, wood strips allow you to install real floorboards and create living areas that are both welcoming and comfortable. Decking boards are mostly on offer in exotic woods due to their density and their longevity in resisting the elements.
Wood is a natural living material. It’s warm, attractive and ecological. It stands up to tests of time and needs little maintenance. It has low thermal conductivity and so remains at a temperature that is never too hot to touch. These qualities make it the first choice when creating or renovating a garden terrace.
Wood is a living product that changes over time. Changes in colour and appearance are perfectly normal. Ultra-violet light changes the colour of deck boards and tiles to a silvery grey but your decking will still be as hard-wearing as ever.
Décoplus Parquets has selected a range of extremely hard-wearing materials that are suitable for outdoor use.
When considering wooden decking, follow the rules of the FCBA, the Association Terrasse Bois, the CSTB, and the DTU 51.4 Platelages Extérieurs Bois.
Decoplus Parquets can help you find a professional for laying your wood flooring
Decking installation is tricky and may require the assistance of a professional but can also be undertaken by experts in DIY. The intrinsic qualities of the wood impose a certain number of precautions that must be respected in all phases of installation (before, during and after laying).
The installation method used will need to be adapted to the particular layout of the wood decking installation site. Wood decking can be installed over concrete slabs, on supporting foundation posts, or by using height-adjustable pedestals to support the battens.

Care and Maintenance
The frequency of maintenance and the service life of your decking are, for the most part, linked to the resistance of the wood used and the initial treatments it undergoes.
If you want to prevent your wood from becoming grey, you should apply a brightener to protect your decking.
A saturator can also be applied to bring out the pigments of the wood.
We recommend meticulously cleaning your wood once or twice a year. Simply wash with soap and water to give your deck its shine back. You should always clean in the direction of the boards
