Are you tired looking at your porch or deck’s worn out tiles? Are you in a tight budget but would really need a deck-lift without having to call the professional? Are you after affordable tiles that are easy to install? Well, there is a solution to your tile dilemma.
Here are easy-to-install tiles for your deck or porch and ou don’t actually need a professional to do the work.
Snap-together deck tiles
These tiles are great over your existing old deck tiles as they can cover weathered wood decks, concrete surfaces, porches and even walkways.
Teak tiles are great for outdoor dining and entertaining. They are easy to install as the tiles are linked together through a hidden stainless steel hardware.
Recycled composite tiles
Are you the earth-friendly kind and want to do your part to minimize use of natural resources? Then this kind of decking floor will be the best to use. Renew Resources tiles are made out of recycled wood and plastic. They are installed slightly elevated to allow water to flow underneath.
European groove tiles
The European groove tiles are called as such because they are milled with grooves patterned after the traditional European decking style. The ipe tiles (or exotic hardwood used for decking and flooring) can withstand damp, hot, or cold climates.
These are assembled walkways with ropes which can be rolled out over grass, stones or wood chips. This is quite versatile in a way because you can take it in if you want to show your old porch or deck and take it out again if you want to cover it with something new. Not only that, it is great above grassy areas if you have parties and you don’t want your guests’ heels getting stuck in the grass.
I prefer this than wood because if I will build my house in the Philippines where it perennially rains then this can be a good solution to a porch, deck or garden flooring and walkway with less the muddy after-effect.
The stone deck tiles looks like patio pavers without having to uproot your existing deck.
