How to Revive & Resurface a Patio Deck

 
 
 
 

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

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

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 need 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 need 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'll just need a sharp handsaw or power saw.  

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

Everything you need for a new patio deck is right inside in each box of tiles - a complete DIY patio deck kit!

SwiftDeck Ipe wood deck tiles

 
 
 

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

With this range of tiles, it's important that the tiles 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 decks

 
 

If you have pipes, posts or other fixed obstacles on the patio, that's no real problem since the SwiftDeck or ResiDeck tiles can easily be cut to shape with a handsaw or jigsaw.  You might need 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 connecting 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 completely new patio flooring....  a beautiful deck 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 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).
