    Ipe Vertical Rain Screen Installation

    Posted by Chris Nolan on Wed, Aug 14, 2013 @ 11:08 AM

    An Ipe wood rainscreen looks terrific when installed vertically. Check out the Ipe vertical rain screen installation pictures below. Ipe hardwood siding and the Climate-Shield rain Screen System were selected for this ipe rain screen project in Manzanita, Oregon.
