Ipe wood staining Portland, OR

We’ve been talking a lot about wood staining and refinishing lately (if you missed them, take a look at our last couple of blogs here and here). 

Painting can tend to steal the show, but as a high-end painting company with a long history of exceptional wood refinishing, we like to draw attention to more natural finishes, too. There are few things more satisfying than highlighting the natural warmth and character of a beautiful piece of wood, while simultaneously adding essential protection.

In this case, we were asked to refinish a gorgeous Portland home with Ipe siding. Ipe is really an incredible material: 100% natural and renowned for its strength and durability. In fact, thanks to its strength and charm, it is often used as a higher-end deck material too.

Faded and worn, the wood was definitely ready for a fresh look. As you can see in the first photo below, there also were watermarks in certain spots (particularly along the outer edges) that needed to be rubbed out. 

Here are a few of our favorite in-process pictures as our team moves toward the finish line!
