did a custom gate (my metal guy built the gate according to specs i gave him so that all you see is a sliver of frame). Finish was done in aluminum siding (6" v-grove planks, come in 16' runs). I also used it on some exterior accents locations which i initially speced for siding anyway when i did the stucco. Installation of siding was super easy. As much as i love the IPE look i just dont have time nor do i want to deal with the upkeep.. this stuff will last forever and finish warranty is 25 years.. you can get almost any color imaginable, i went with barn wood oak. I'll prob spray a UV coat every 5 years just to be safe.. I still have three more side gates to do and maybe a large front entry gate.
