Patio and Deck Perforated Tile Description
These perforated deck and patio floor tiles use a loop-to-peg interlocking system making them very easy to install. Most residential patios or decks can be covered within one day. The tiles feature a dual grid perforated (drain) design, so they tend to have a pleasant two-toned appearance when viewed at an angle.
The patio floor tiles are 12 x 12 x ½ inch and will allow water or other liquids to drain quickly. Additionally, the grid texture of the tiles makes them slip-resistant. Although the patios tiles can be installed in a variety of areas and weather conditions, they are best for homes that have snow, muddy areas, and constant contact with water.
Patio and Deck Perforated Tile Structure
ModuTile perforated tiles are made out of a specially formulated high-impact polypropylene (high-impact plastic) that will support heavy loads. It is a hard product, but it will conform to a slightly uneven surface.
Yes, the tiles can support the weight of your patio furniture and barbecue grill. However, we suggest that pinpoint objects are placed over a mat or furniture sliders to distribute the load and prevent potential discoloration from the stress of pinpoint weight.
The tiles provide a safe walking surface. The traction control feature makes them slip-resistant. Some people may find that the texture is uncomfortable when they walk across the floor with their bare feet. In addition, walking in stiletto or high/spiked heels on the perforated tiles can cause the tiles to be punctured or discolored.
The mesh design allows full air and water flow. We designed the tiles for use on your patio flooring or deck flooring, so they come with UV protection. The UV protection means that the tiles are suitable for use in direct or partial sunlight.
The most significant benefit of the grid structure is that it allows moisture to escape from underneath. It also provides a thermal barrier between the concrete underneath and the top surface.
DIY Patio Flooring Installation
Installation is as easy as snapping the tiles together like a children’s block set. The tiles interlock together with the loop-to-peg system. Just align pegs to the loops and press down with your hand or a small rubber mallet.
First, calculate the number of cases you need for your project. The calculation is usually is very simple because you only need to know the square footage of your patio or deck. Consider whether or not you will cut the tiles to go around any permanent structures or accommodate a uniquely shaped space.
If you need to cut the floor tiles to install them around any permanent structures, add about 6% to the square footage for the total number of tiles required. These additional tiles will cover the waste amount. If you need help with the calculation, you can contact us, and we will be happy to help you.
Next, prepare the area by removing foreign objects, dirt, and debris so that you are beginning with a clean concrete subfloor or deck floor so that the tiles will lay flat. These patio floor tiles require a flat subfloor (though some unevenness is okay).
Consider having a pair of gloves, knee pads, and a small rubber or mallet handy when installing the tiles to be more comfortable and make the process even easier.
Cutting the Perforated Tiles
If you need to cut the tiles, please use a jig-saw with a fine-tooth blade (plastic blade). When using an electric saw, use protective glasses and take any safety precautions recommended by the owner’s manual for the tools used.
You will notice small spaces between each tile to allow room for the tiles to expand and contract when the temperature varies. The tiles expand and contract with temperature fluctuations. For this reason, it is best to leave at least ½-inch of space between the tiles and walls or permanent structures.
NOTICE: Failure to leave adequate room for the tiles to expand with temperature changes may cause the tiles to buckle when the room becomes warmer.
Cleaning your Perforated Patio Tiles
The high-impact polymer is extremely difficult to stain, which makes the patio tiles a smart choice for a deck or patio. As needed, sweep the patio or deck flooring and wash with mild soap and water. Use a shop-vac to clean small debris easily.
Since any liquid spilled on the tiles will seep down to the floor below, you may occasionally remove all or a portion of the flooring to sweep and/or wash the underlying concrete or wood. Once you have done so, then you can re-install the floor tiles.
The color may fade slightly over the long run just like any other object in direct sunlight for an extended time. However, proper care of the tiles will lengthen the life of the tiles, and they will maintain their structural integrity.
