fences, decks and pergolas.  Using only the finest materials, our company will

CEDAR PRIVACY FENCES
IPE HARDWOOD DECKS
ROUGH CEDAR PERGOLAS
Fences help define our outdoor living space and give us privacy
in our crowded suburban neighborhoods. Our cedar privacy
fences are build exceptionally strong with 16’ alternating runners,
not 8’ and with galvanized screws, not nails.  If you find a cheaper
bid from our competitor, it probably is being constructed with ring
shank nails that will fail over time.  Our fence will probably be the
one still be standing after the big storm!
Our gates are reinforced with extra construction
brackets keep it square and eliminate gate sag
over time.  This will be the first thing to malfunction
on our competitors fences.  This comes standard
will not find any other fence company include this
in their estimates so make sure you compare
apples to apples if getting estimates.  

If you plan to be in your home for awhile and want
the best quality and durability, go with us!
Cedar will patina to a natural silver-grey with no chemical coating. Applying a stain or
preservative to Cedar lumber is not recommended unless you plan on repeating the
process every year or two.  By doing this you have just created a high maintenance
project. In contract, we promote everything that is low maintenance.  We usually
design our fences to be sleek and simple and serve as a functional element of the
landscape.  We prefer your landscape plants be the center of your focus.
We are specialists in the installation of the world’s most durable hardwood; Brazilian
Ipe or ironwood. This amazing wood is wonderful “Green” building product due to its
ultra low maintenance properties, 50+ year lifespan and sustainable reforestation.
IPE has natural decay resistance superior to that of cedar or redwood and does not
contain dangerous chemical preservatives. IPE is incredibly tight grained, dense
and strong; a 1x6 IPE deck board will easily span 24” o.c.

IPE is more cost effective than you may think. IPE decking costs about the same as
equivalent grades of cedar, redwood and most composite deck materials.  The
most inexpensive deck is ACQ Pine. However, the beauty, refined look and amazing
durability of Brazilian Ipe is the lowest cost and most rewarding in the long run.
We construct most ipe decks with "Ipe Clip" hidden fasteners. This keeps the
surface smooth and blemmish free and is up to 3x stronger than other
fastening methods. If you find a cheaper bid from our competitor, it probably is
being constructed with nails or low quality screws that rust and fail over time.

Ipe lumber will age to a natural silver gray patina, and outlast all other woods
with no chemical coating.  When allowed to patina, ipe will not rot because of
its own natural decay defenses. It will remain smooth and splinter free even
after 25 to 50 years.  If you desire to keep the rich brown colours that exist in
a new installation, you will need to apply an oil-based finish.  This is totally
optional and does not effect longevity; it only protects color.  

This is as close to a zero maintenance as possible.  We challenge you to find
a picture or article about "ipe wood rot" on the internet; we never have.

For more information about IPE, see our supplers website below:
ipe is extremely dent  and scratch resistant
Ipe gets silver patina; no rot
ipe is so dense it sinks in water
ipe can handle a tremendous load
Most ipe wood comes from tropical rain forests in
South America; we only buy from sources that are
procured in a legal and environmentally responsible
manner.  We pride ourselves on the fact that our
responsible forestry efforts save thousands of acres
from being destroyed for farm land.  Only a few logs
are cut per acre  which allows forest to regenerate and
be logged again in 10 to 15 years.  This puts a value
on the forest, saving them from being slashed and
burnt for agricultural and cattle land.

By buying tropical timbers from a reputable company
that practices good forestry, you are helping to save
the forest by putting a value on the timber so that the
land is not burnt.  It may seem unbelievable that
someone would burn forest that contained valuable
timber, but the fact is that for a cattle farmer it is more
profitable than to go through the bureaucracy of
obtaining the necessary environmental surveys and
obtaining the slew of permits needed to
harvest/mill/&export even a few trees per acre.  For

ipe is a natural "organic" product; it has
no dangerous chemical preservatives!
Decks are one of the most rewarding home improvement projects you can have installed
at your home. Aside from adding value,  there is nothing more satisfying than sitting on
your new deck in the morning with a hot cup of coffee.

Our rough cedar pergolas are built with high
quality materials construction techniques.  We
install frost depth footings, hidden galvanized
steel fasteners, hidden lag bolts and screws.  
Cedar will patina to a natural silver-grey  with no
chemical preservative coating.  Applying a stain
or paint to Cedar lumber is not recommended
unless you plan on repeating the process every
couple years (Again, you have just created
higher maintenance).  We promote everything
that is low maintenance!
A rough cedar pergola will add that “outdoor room” to your house for a fraction of the cost of a
room addition!  What a perfect way to shade your deck without waiting for a shade tree to
grow!  Pergolas also create the perfect place for a backyard vineyard. The structure makes it
easy to grow and harvest grapes.
WE USE SCREWS, NOT NAILS!
