New stain enhances NYC area Brazilian Ipe deck
A Power Shower | Valhalla, N.Y.
Eliot Tuckerman enhanced his home’s exotic hardwood deck.
“I have a very large deck made of Brazilian Ipe wood,” Tuckerman. “This year, we decided to give it a mahogany oil stain to give it a dark rich color that is close to its original. We’ve used Phil [Forcelli, the owner] before and he’s always done a wonderful job. I knew that he did deck staining, so I hired him for the job.
"He and his assistant worked their butts off through a very long hot day, with only a brief break. They did a magnificent job and did it all to perfection. This is typical of Phil's superb work ethic: He's reliable, meticulous and always gives 110 percent in everything he does. He's unquestionably one of the best tradespeople I've ever dealt with."
