Outdoor Pavers for Patio Use
Porcelain pavers, until recently, have mainly been used for traditional interior tiling purposes. However, with advances in manufacturing techniques and a new frontier in paver technology, it is now possible to make porcelain pavers in a much greater thickness and size, enabling these pavers to be used for ground-breaking exterior paving applications such as residential and commercial patios.
Porcelain pavers are highly durable due to their specialized manufacturing process, resulting in a tile of unique strength and hardness. They have a vast amount of practical safety benefits for patio projects, such as resistance to frost, fire and thermal shock, and they can withstand more than 2,200 pounds of weight per slab for superior load-bearing capabilities. This enables them to withstand high foot traffic with ease, and, coupled with their anti-slip properties, they’re ideal for commercial applications where guest safety is a priority.
Paired with our innovative adjustable pedestal system, Tile Tech porcelain pavers are the superior choice for outdoor patios. Installation can be performed in a matter of hours — even by homeowners who want to do it themselves — and there are hundreds of unique designs to choose from. We have 10 series of porcelain pavers, each with a variety of colors and finishes that replicate the appearance of wood plank, rustic wood, stone, slate, cement and more. Whether you want a sleek and dark natural stone appearance or a light and bright white tile, you’re guaranteed to find a porcelain paver product that perfectly matches your desired patio design.
No matter what size, location, budget or design your patio project has, you can find a Tile Tech porcelain paver that meets all of your needs. To learn more about porcelain deck tiles for patios, click here.
Wood Deck Tiles
Wood deck tiles can turn any unusable outdoor space into a functional and beautiful outdoor patio. Wood pavers are perfect for constructing raised wood decks over exterior surfaces such as rooftops, terraces and patios. They offer a natural style with low maintenance requirements, making them ideal for areas with high foot traffic. Their exotic, durable finish replicates the appearance of a hardwood deck without the exorbitant price, making them one of our best-selling patio paver products.
Made out of certified Cumaru and ipe wood lumber, these intertwining deck tiles are incredibly versatile, durable and beautiful. Each tile easily snaps into place to create a minimalist deck design that can be adjusted for a classic hardwood look or an alternating grid design. The curve-cut slots on every corner also enable them to fit perfectly into our innovative adjustable pedestals, making installation a breeze and repairs even easier.
Wood deck tiles are also a low-maintenance option; you have the choice to reseal them to preserve the original finish or allow them to weather naturally for a stunning silver-gray hue. Plus, unlike traditional hardwood decking, the adjustable pedestal system allows water to drain beneath Tile Tech’s wood deck tiles, making them appropriate for any weather your patio may encounter.
Choose from Cumaru or ipe wood — including Forest Stewardship Council-certified lumber — in 20”x20”, 24”x24” or 24”x48” sizes. To learn more about Tile Tech wood deck tiles, click here.
The Tile Tech adjustable pedestal system is a structural support system consisting of seven standard pieces and a user-supplied SDR-35 PVC pipe. This system is used to convert uneven and otherwise unusable terrain into a perfectly level patio area. Part of what makes our deck pedestals so easy to use is their self-leveling properties. The self-level head on each pedestal allows for slope compensation of 0 percent to 4 percent in any direction. The pedestals themselves can also be adjusted up to 24 inches.
Our adjustable pedestal system was designed to be incredibly versatile and useful in as many applications as possible. They’re compatible with our concrete pavers, porcelain pavers, ipe wood deck tiles, paver trays and more, and they’re suitable for outdoor decking or rooftop installations. Our adjustable pedestals were created to be as versatile and user-friendly as possible, enabling you to create a more dynamic and functional outdoor patio.
We offer two adjustable pedestal system types: hybrid and standard. Click here to learn more about Tile Tech’s innovative adjustable pedestal system.
