The homeowners wanted a one-of-a-kind deck built with the highest quality wood and no markings on the deck to impede the natural look of this beautiful wood. Valhalla used true IPE “iron wood” to build this deck. (If IPE wood is not stamped with the word “iron wood”, it is not true IPE….it could be a close relative but much softer and less dense). We make sure our materials are the highest quality that there is. This deck was completely blind fastened so you could not see any screw holes. Where it was necessary to make holes, they were plugged with hand-made IPE plugs. The rail was all handmade with the same IPE wood. A truly custom deck built meticulously with a goal and outcome of perfection!
