deck tiles

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.

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
