We are building a first floor deck and we’re thinking of having it a tiled deck.Does anyone have advice on the pros and cons of the different decks finishes and also differences in costs.
We’re having a similar dilemma so keen to hear everyone’s views out there. Millboard is apparently the best for a large uncovered deck, but incredibly expensive. Timber requires so much ongoing maintenance.
We have duralife grey garappa decking and we love it.
Timber deck or tiled concrete patio?
Upstairs deck - need some ideas on updating please
Composite decking product advice
Tiles that look like wood
Yes there are a lot of composite boards out there but some look really fake so will need to be careful. Also I don’t like where they have to occasionally put a screw in it sort of lifts around the screw.
Only thing I can suggest, is not getting glossy tiles as although they look amazing, they are so easy to slip on.
If you decide to go with Composite Decking, do your research. Get some samples, check warranties, reviews etc.
Normal hardwood decking is lower cost to purchase than most composites. However, although the initial cost of wood is less, composite usually ends up paying for itself within 2-3 years when including the cost of annual maintenance. Oiling, staining etc.
