Or cedar. It's going to get slimy and slippery over time that's for sure.

Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Vancouver has a bunch of decks like those, most prominently along Canada Place, and I can't say I've ever found them slippery in rainy weather.

What is that wood, eucalyptus?  Cannot believe it is teak.


It shouldn't be too slippy, and will improve grip as it weathers, but will need replacement in due course.

It is actually Ipe, a brazillian wood that has excellent rot resistance and weathering attributes. 3 times more dense than cedar and to quote an article "It has been ASTM-D143 tested and Ipe wood exceeds the American with Disabilities Act requirements for Static Coefficient of friction in a wet environment."
