deck tiles

PoorOwnerApril 9, 2010

Hi, I was wondering what is your opinion of deck tiles that are 12x12" and 1" thick? Choosing from eucaluptus or teak. The actual wood must be very thin.

I am wondering the longevity of this install (warping etc?). The result over bare concrete is great (lots of warmth). Of course does not compare to a deck, but I hope it last 5-10 years at $5 a sq ft.

I am in CA where we don't get snow, but a lot of direct sun in the area I am interested in.

Another thought, They sell composite deck tiles.

These guys actually started composite decking high quality product and an honest business.

Most low cost eucalyptus tile are e.saligna which is only moderately durable - possibly last up to 5 years. Teak should be better though. Also you could try Ipe tile (which is one of the hardest and most durable woods available) e.g. from
