ipe deck stringers


putting in a small ipe landing, about 6x4, 2 ft off ground. stairs are coming off the 6 ft side, dont want to see p.t. wood , so i got some 2x12 ipe for the outside stringers. ok to have the ipe in contact with the concrete pad or shim it up off the ground. i will be using the wax end sealer with my cuts. thanks.
