Charlotte Ipe Deck Cleaning


Renew Crew of Charlotte specializes in cleaning ALL types of outdoor surfaces, from siding and sidewalks to patios and decks — decks built from a variety of mediums including PT wood, composite and hardwood. Hardwoods are very popular among discriminating homeowners. Ipe (pronounced Ee-pay) is at the top of this list and is among one of the finest exotic hardwoods on the market today. Coveted for it’s striking pattern and rich color, Ipe is one of the many hardwood decking surfaces Renew Crew of Charlotte is proud to clean and maintain for homeowners all over Charlotte and the surrounding region.

Exotic hardwood outdoor surfaces like Ipe are not hard to maintain, but there is some work involved. Over time Ipe begins to develop a dove gray patina as the sun’s rays bleach the exposed wood fibers. Some homeowners prefer the weathered look. But we can restore the original luster of the wood and keep it looking beautiful year after year. One of our most recent projects in South Charlotte demonstrates how we are able to clean and restore the beauty of an Ipe deck:

Renew Crew provides safe and effective deck sealing and cleaning. Our 3-step process ensures that your deck is effectively and safely cleaned and protected. Our foamer gently cleans without damaging your wood or other surfaces. We then seal and protect your deck to a like-new appearance. Sun exposure challenges your deck’s surface but Renew Crew of Charlotte cleans, seals, and protects your deck.
