How to Revive & Resurface a Patio Deck

 
 
 
 

Cover your patio with classic hardwood or elegant stone tile flooring in just minutes.

Just imagine your bland concrete patio covered instead with a classic hardwood patio deck or elegant stone tile flooring.

Well, with HandyDeck interlocking patio tiles, you can turn dreams into reality in just an hour or so. And it's as simple as taking the tiles out of the box and clipping them into place over your existing patio surface.

There's no need for tedious surface preparation, no need for special skills and no need to employ expensive contractors. You don't even require any special tools; just a measuring tape, a box cutter and a study paid of gloves is enough in most cases. The only time you'll need extra tools is if you have to cut the tiles to fit around posts or pipes. And even then if you are using our wood or composite wood patio tiles, you can cut them with just a sharp handsaw.  

To lay your new patio flooring, measure up the area you want to cover, calculate how many tiles you'll need and you're ready to go.

Everything that's necessary for your new patio deck is right inside in each box of tiles - a complete DIY patio deck kit!

SwiftDeck Ipe patio tiles

 
 
 

Our SwiftDeck and ResiDeck interlocking deck tiles are somewhat forgiving of small surface variations because they are slightly flexible in one direction, but with our EzyTile ceramic, granite and interlocking slate patio tiles, the surface should be as smooth as possible.

With this range of tiles, it's important that they do not "rock" on the surface, as it’s possible they could crack if a heavy weight was placed unevenly across the tile.

 
 

Installed patio flooring

 
 

If you have pipes, posts or other fixed obstacles on the patio, that's no real problem since the SwiftDeck or ResiDeck interlocking tiles can easily be cut to shape with a handsaw or jigsaw.  It may be necessary to reposition a few screws which hold the slats to the base after cutting, but that's about it. With the EzyTile range however, you will a need a wetsaw to cut the tiles to shape.

For a professional finish on the outer edge of your patio deck, edging pieces are available for the SwiftDeck and EzyTile ranges. These are designed not only to avoid the danger of tripping on the edge of the deck,  but they also hide the plastic interlocking tabs around the sides of the tiles.  These edge pieces simply clip onto the edge of the outer row of tiles.

So that's all there is to installing your completely new patio flooring....  a beautiful patio surface you can use, enjoy and admire for years to come.  To see pictures of completed patio decks with our interlocking tiles, go to our SwiftDeck wood deck tiles page to see patios with wood tiles or EzyTile deck tiles page to see patio decks with our granite, sandstone or slate patio tiles (click on the Gallery tabs).
