Porcelain Pavers are an outstanding upgrade to completely transform your outdoor space without a removal of the existing surface. The raised porcelain paver systems are being installed high and low, across the country. Small projects on condo balconies, large hotel and restaurant expansions, roof decks in Manhattan and Los Angeles, you name it! Once your material has been purchased you have the luxury of hiring an installer to lend a helping hand, or the freedom of easily and properly completing the project yourself. Here is a guide of everything you'll need to know about what it takes to DIY a raised porcelain paver system.

Gather any tools you will need to complete the project. Cleaning products, edge clips or wall spacers if necessary, a level for accuracy, pedestals, a saw for cutting etc.

 

Clean your outdoor surface. A light sweeping and mopping, allowing time for drying, is all the cleaning that is required. Also be sure of a great weather forecast, no rain or snow before or during installation.

 

Apply the insulating layer to the pedestals. This is the cushion between the pedestals and the pre existing surface and this is an optional step.

Begin the grid planning around the perimeter edges and configuring where all of the pedestals will be placed. This is an important step as this is the support system to your flooring.

 

Position a pedestal underneath the center of the slab for a perfectly safe, stable and long lasting application.

 

Position the clean, dry porcelain slabs on the pedestals. Everything should pop right into place unless a major mistake was made in the planning process of pedestal placement, which is an easy fix that shouldn’t require much time.

Ensure the completed raised porcelain paver surface is level and plane. Not only is a level floor safe, it also adds great value to the aesthetic of the project. The more even and plane your pavers are, the more expensive and high end your deck will look.

 

Regulate the pedestals if any imperfections are found during the leveling process and place your porcelain pavers back into the grid.

 

The final step is to gently walk across all parts of the deck ensuring a flawless installation. Porcelain pavers that are installed correctly do not shake or wobble.

Porcelain pavers are a cutting edge product seen throughout homes, patios, balconies, roof decks and commercial properties and are perfect for pedestal roof decks. However, the pavers were not always used for outdoor raised pedestal and exterior systems. The porcelain pavers were traditionally much smaller, thinner and only used for indoor applications or exterior balcony tiles. Through high quality manufacturing and engineering, the raised outdoor pedestal paving system was created utilizing 2cm or double thick porcelain. The outdoor pavers have a high level of manufacturing in this thickness and can wqithstand a tremendous amount of weight.  They are impervious to  quality and are created with the safety components that are required for outdoor flooring such as non slip technology and durability to last through rough and tough weather storms and conditions. The raised porcelain pedestals are also 100% recycled so you will have the pride of knowing you have also made an environmentally sustainable home improvement decision. They are zero mess, no fuss and also give your flooring the same height indoor and out with a seamless and level application.

Ipe Deck Tiles and how we got started in the outdoor flooring industry..


Our company started back in 2005 with a simple concept, outdoor flooring that is easy to install and lasts the test of time.  Over the course of the past 15 years we came to realize that outdoor flooring was so much more than our original product we called Eco Decking Tiles.  Today, we have done everything from Hotyels decks, to high end residential to restaurants to spas.  We seem to have done it all.  With all the new products we have launched and designed we seem to always come back to our original design.  Simple interlocking deck tiles. 

 They arent perfect for every application, nor do they fit into every budget or need.  But the one thing they do have is durability and ease of use.  In fact there is no better flooring product for a sinmple condominium balcony. Lock them down in place,  cut your last row and enjoy.  How many products out there are that easy, yet give you so much value to be able to walk on real wood deck with no complicated cutting or construction. We believe today these interlocking ipe deck tiles (our number one seller) will always have a place in our product portfolio. 

Deck tiles come in many formats, materials, shapes and sizes.  But one thing remains the same.  Quality materials!  An interlocking base that is easy to use, remains intact no matter how many times you lock or unlock the tiles.  As well as a qual;ity hardwood or composite surface. 

Our deck tiles are just that.  We have been told by countless design professionals that our interlocking base is the best on the market.  With UV stabilization, and fire retardant polymers in the base, we arent worried about where you install them, or how long they will be outside.  Our story and our original customers prove that this product is the type of set it and forget it system.  We are proud to be using the same materials and same factory for this long.  We continue to be a leader in the deck tile market.  We hope that you will give this product a shot for your application.  We will guide you as to what is the best product and application.  If it doesnt make sense  we will be the first to tell you. 

With one of the longest warranties in the business we know you will enjoy our deck tiles on your application, whether it be a balcony,  temporary event floor, or a boat deck.  Give us a call or visit out site for more information.
