We use Torch down roofing as opposed to Membrane . Torch down roofing systems tend to be more expensive than other roofing materials; however, their resistance to harsh weather conditions and long lifespan make them well worth the additional cost over time. Ask your inspector about quality.
Clear Cedar siding is used instead of the much less expensive Tight Knot or Knotted Cedar.
Ipe Lumber is used for Ipe wood decking, Ipe wood decking tiles, and other outdoor applications, Ipe wood structures are hard, strong, and naturally resistant to rot, abrasion and weather. It is almost twice as dense as most woods and up to five times harder.
