Do-it-yourself fans can make repairing or updating a patio easy with interlocking deck tile. These tiles follow the same basic principle as interlocking floor boards. Instead of an overhanging lip, the tiles feature a plastic grid base with extensions that slide under other tiles to snap into place. Interlocking tiles are currently available in several different product lines.

Structure

Interlocking deck tiles are made of a durable surface material attached to a special plastic grid. The grid covers the entire base of each tile, and several connection tabs extend out from all four sides of the tile. These tabs slide under adjacent tiles. You snap them into place by pressing down on the tops of the tiles. The tiles sizes include 11 13/16 inches by 11 13/16 inches, 12 by 12 inches, and 12 by 24 inches.

Uses

Interlocking deck tile allows for quick and easy installation of a new patio over any hard surface. Its interlocking plastic grid base is slightly raised to provide for water drainage. The interlocking grid also means no screws or hammers are required for installation. The finished flooring provides a hard surface for patios, decks and even interior rooms.

Styles

Interlocking deck tile comes in four different types of material: wood, porcelain, stoneware and composite. Four lines of tile decking are available for buyers: SwiftDeck, LinkDeck, EzyTile, and ResiDeck. SwiftDeck is made with Ipe wood, one of the hardest and most durable woods in nature. LinkDeck is a lower cost wood decking made from either Teak or Indian Rosewood. EzyTile is porcelain and stoneware, including slate, sandstone and granite. ResiDeck is a wood composite material useful for high humidity areas.

Features

In addition to having the interlocking base, these tiles are designed for durability, water resistance and easy installation. Installation requires no tools, grout or adhesives. Both SwiftDeck and LinkDeck are made from Eco-friendly wood harvested in sustainable forest management procedures. The Ipe wood in SwiftDeck is fire resistant and offers three to five times the lifespan of other decking materials. Teak wood in Link Deck is splinter resistant and offers a smooth, beautiful surface. The Indian Rosewood in this line also offers durability and beauty.
