Unlocking Outdoor Design: How Adjustable Pedestals Elevate Porcelain Paver Projects

Porcelain deck pavers are one of the most popular hardscaping options on the market due to their incredible versatility, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Not only that, but they’re incredibly easy to install, making them perfect for a homeowner who wants to DIY or a business looking to stay within budget.

Tile Tech offers an innovative adjustable pedestal system that works seamlessly with all of our deck pavers to make it easier than ever to perfectly install a level roof deck, terrace, or patio on any terrain. If you’re ready to renovate your outdoor space with porcelain deck pavers, here are a few ways that adjustable pedestals can elevate your porcelain paver project.

Additional Insulation

One of the main advantages of utilizing adjustable pedestals in your porcelain pavers project is the additional insulation they provide. Roof pedestals act as a gap between the pavers and the rooftop on which they’re installed, creating an air cushion that helps regulate temperature. 

The combination of deck pavers and roof pedestals also creates an additional layer between the outdoors and indoors, protecting your building from the sun’s heat and helping to moderate its interior temperature. By acting as a thermal insulator, your roof deck paver system keeps your building cooler and reduces energy consumption, even saving you money in the long run.

Improved Water Drainage

Porcelain deck pavers are known for their low water absorption rate, which makes them ideal for outdoor installations. However, without proper drainage, water can still pool on the surface, leading to slip hazards and potential property damage over time.

By using adjustable pedestals with your installation, you can easily create a slope that allows water to flow away from the surface of your pavers and into a designated area, keeping the area safe and reducing the risk of water damage. At Tile Tech, we also design our adjustable pedestals with drainage in mind; many of the components of our system, including the stack cap, have holes to allow water to pass through without pooling.


When it comes to any property renovation, cost is always a major consideration. Luckily, using adjustable pedestals can help cut down on costs in several ways. Firstly, roof pedestals provide a cost-effective solution for any projects that have uneven surfaces or sloped areas. Rather than having to level the surface through excavation, which can be time-consuming and expensive, adjustable pedestals easily create a perfectly level surface on any terrain in just a few hours, eliminating the need for extensive prep work.

Additionally, roof pedestals are incredibly low-maintenance, saving you money on long-term maintenance and repair work. Not only are the pedestals themselves incredibly durable and long-lasting with little maintenance required, but they also help create a modular system for your deck. This means that any damaged deck pavers or pedestals can be individually removed and replaced without the need for extensive repair work.

Incredibly Durable

When choosing materials for outdoor projects, you want to ensure that all of your materials are durable and built to last. Porcelain pavers are known for their strength and resilience across any weather conditions, but by using adjustable pedestals, you can take the durability of your outdoor space to the next level.

Tile Tech’s adjustable pedestals are made of 100 percent recycled and flame-resistant high-density polypropylene. They’re one of the sturdiest and most durable installation solutions on the market, so you can be sure that your paver deck will stand the test of time. Our adjustable pedestal system is also backed by a 10-year manufacturer warranty to provide further peace of mind and quality assurance. Paired with industry-leading porcelain deck pavers, your outdoor deck will stay in good condition for years, no matter what weather or foot traffic it comes up against.
