Ipe Siding/cladding Installation Tips

  • Let the Ipe wood siding acclimate to its new environment to prevent abnormal shrinkage/expansion after the installation.
  • Must apply a wood sealer or an oil to the backside of the siding, to prevent cupping, warping and premature aging.
  • Use minimum 1” thick furring strips, for a maximum furring/joist span 16“cc
  • Always use an end sealer for the end cuts to prevent checking, cupping and splitting or rapid or uneven moisture loss.
  • Avoid 45° cuts in the corners as finishing, exposed corners may open or split over time – it’s better to install a finishing corner.
  • Use stainless steel screws 2” or longer and hidden fasteners
  • To enhance Ipe wood colours you can use an oil or a water repellent UV protector for hardwoods
  • Typically, an exposed face of oiled Ipe siding needs to be refreshed every 1 or 2 years, depending on its exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
  • Hire an experienced Ipe wood siding installation contractor, e good installer is an experienced one. Ask for similar project references.
