Ipe eventually goes grey, no matter what?

16 years ago

I think I've read 100's of useful ipe posts, but I don't remember reading what my dealer told me. He said that in the humid southeast, ipe is eventually going to go grey, no matter what sort of washing and coating routine you use. In other words, short of sanding it, it's never going to look as good as the first time you put a high quality sealant on it.

Does this sound right to you? Have any of you found a maitenance strategy that works over a long period of time in a humid area?
