Pedestals for Outdoor Raised Paver Flooring Systems

(Posted on Jun 1, 2020 at 09:24PM by Lorenzo Cavalletti)
Taking on a remodel of your outdoor patio or balcony is super exciting and the completed project will bring you joy for many years to come. The flooring is very versatile and can be used in almost any climate. Once you narrow your decision down to porcelain or wood, next comes the pedestals. There are 3 types of great quality paver pedestals to choose from and each has its own purpose.

Eco Arbor Designs Adjustable Telescoping Pedestals are perhaps the best telescoping support system in the world today.  These pedestals surpass the competition in both the weight they can hold and circumference of the top.  Both of these features give you an easier installation and more solid support.  The unique top slope corrector is not a self leveling design which is known to come loose over time and rattle when walked on. Eco Arbor Designs slope correctors give you the compensation from 1-5%.  This range is more than any other pedestal in the market for the most challenging sloped decks.  To adjust just turn the corrector until level.

PVC Based Adjustable Pedestals are a cost effective way to get a raised floor up to 36" in height at a low cost. A Schedule 450 PVC pipe is cut to create the riser.  The self leveling head is adjustable from 3/4" to 2.5"  afterwards fine tune the final height.  This pedestal system has been a great application for heights above 8" where telescoping native height pedestals can become expensive.

Fixed Height Rubber Paver Supports are superior to plastic fixed height systems in that they give you superior sound and vibration absorption, and greater friction to the surface paver ensuring no movement or wobble. These are the best solution for porcelain pavers and wood pavers over surfaces where low finished heights are needed. These rubber fixed height supports are stackable and therefore can be raised to accommodate up to 1.5" in height.
