IPE Wood Deck with Pergola

IPE Wood Deck with ipe decking, PVC rails and recessed panel posts to give this Staten Island home its beach-house look.

Builder Bob Kiefer says he installed the ipe decking in a herringbone pattern on both the main deck and the small balcony off the master bedroom to create the feeling of being down on the boardwalk. All details were covered from top to bottom, including wrapping all posts underneath and scribing radii on the beam wraps.
