• If exposed to the elements and left untreated, ipe will gradually develop a grey patina. Treating annually minimizes this color change but isn't required to retain durability and resistance to the elements.

  • To revitalize ipe's color, treat annually with products designed for tropical hardwoods. We recommend cleaning with Golden Care wood cleaner and buffing with Golden Care wood protector for ipe/hardwood. For the best results, follow the instructions on the product's label.

  • Cover wood furniture or store indoors when not in use to extend its life.
