Replacing Carpet On Front Porch

Posted by nerdyshopper (My Page) on

Our old front porch and steps are carpeted. The carpet is getting old and worn. I am considering using tile to replace the carpet but might just recarpet. Is anyone on this forum familiar with outdoor carpets? I can't seem to find which forum at GW to post this question. I know that if I use tile, I want one that is not slippery when wet. Any opinions on that?

Most mobile home parks have outdoor carpet everywhere. That would be a good place to start research.

Most tile showers are not slippery. Ask about tiles that are good for shower floors.

RE: Replacing Carpet On Front Porch

Although I'm not a big fan of big box stores, our local Home Depot has a surprisingly wide selection of outdoor carpets in a wide range of patterns/textures/color ranges. Most carpet stores just have "turf" types or standard ribbed. You might try Home d if there's one in your area. If you can find an associate to help you, ask them because the one's here are layed out on a small display, not rolls in stock and what you pick out has to be ordered.
