Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Can Helios tiles be used on a rubber roof used as a porch? There are railings & gutters on 2 sides of the space. Then can the tiles remain year round, or due to harsh winters should tiles be removed during winter?
Patrish
Do not install deck tiles directly over top rubber roofing as the bottom of the tiles can pierce the rubber.
What is the best way to cut Helios 8 slat tiles?
Tom Brown
To cut composite deck tiles, you can use a sharp tile cutter or a hand saw.
Can you install these directly over a deck? I'd be concerned about tiles not locking together if the deck boards are a little warped or not completely flat. Thanks
JIm
These can be installed over most surfaces that are level and flat. You may run into issues with tiles not staying interlocked if the warping of your subfloor is too bad.
Can you drive a car over these? Can they be used in a horse barn where horses way about 1,200 lbs. each?
John Kott
We do not recommend driving a car over the Helios tiles. We have other products that would be more suitable for use with horses, please call us for assistance.
Can I install these over a flat asphalt roof?
Emily Goldsher

Can these be laid over grass to put a patio set on?
Amy Ellis
Tiles laid over grass are unlikely to stay interlocked since they don't have a solid, firm base. We'd recommend installing the tiles over a level and solid subfloor surface.
I love these deck tiles. I would like to put a gas fire pit on them. https://www.wayfair.com/outdoor/pdp/real-flame-brenner-concrete-propanenatural-gas-fire-pit-table-jfp2003.html Could you take a look at this and let me know if this type of table would be safe on these deck tiles? Thanks,

We are thinking of putting this down in our lanai in our pool area, would this sound hollow when walking on it. Would it move and click around when walking on. I love this look.
Iisa
The Helios Deck Tiles are great for decks. They will not sound hollow or make a clicking sound as long as they are placed on a hard and leveled surface.
Can these be used in an indoor shower stall over existing tile/drain?
Claire

We have cement steps with outdoor carpeting installed over them. If we want to use the Helios deck tiles, would we have to remove the carpet, or could we install the tiles right over the carpet. The steps are under an overhang, but they will get some rain and snow. Wisconsin weather!
Julie Johnson
We recommend installing our Helios Deck Tiles (8 Slat) over a level and solid subfloor surfaces like concrete or asphalt. Tiles laid over carpet are unlikely to stay interlocked since they don't have a solid, firm base.

Tim Johnson
Our Helios Deck Tiles (8 Slat) are 3/4" thick. Please see the "Details" tab on the product page for more product information.
Can these tiles lay right over grassy areas? The area is pretty level, but do the tiles push into the ground to create a level surface? Also is there a rubber backing to the tile? Thank you.
Helios Deck Tiles can be laid over grass, but these tiles may not stay interlocked since they won't have a solid, firm base. We'd recommend installing the tiles over a level and solid subfloor surface. They come with a plastic backing.
Can these tiles be put over concrete on uncovered porch
Yes, absolutely!
Can you attach to current wood deck and also cut the piece at diagonal edge to angle?
Yong Yun
Yes, our Helios Deck Tiles can be installed over an existing wood deck. You may cut these tiles with a sharp tile cutter or a hand saw as needed.
Product info states fade resistant, but does not specifically state it has UV inhibitors, why? Kinda vague if you ask me.
Richard Turner
We can provide that information if asked since it's pretty much understood that a product would have some inhibitors if it's fade resistant. Our Helios deck tiles contain 10% additives. In this 10 % of additives, there are around 0.7%-0.9% inhibitors.
Does tiling over an existing wooden deck accelerate the deterioration of the wood underneath? Do you still have to treat the wood you are tiling over and if so how often? How many years will this tile last in a Pennsylvania climate?
We recommend staining your wood deck before placing our deck tiles over them. Please reach out to your wood deck manufacturer for more information since every deck is different. The tiles should last you 10+ years if used and installed properly.
These tiles fall apart whenever you make a diagnal cut. Do you have anything to hold pieces together that need to be cut?
Mike S Stidham
If you mean the top part, you could use an adhesive to keep them in place.
Can you install this over TPO ?
Office
Do not install deck tiles directly over TPO as the bottom of the tiles can pierce the rubber. Please see our Soft Flex Tiles for this purpose.

Northeastern gal
Helios Deck Tiles (8 Slat) will withstand snow but may get slippery if snow accumulates on the surface. However, once the snow melts, these tiles will allow water to pass through.
Can you put these directly on the ground or do you need a hard surface?
These tiles may be installed directly on the ground, but we recommend placing these over a hard surface to ensure the tiles stay interlocked.

3/4" is the thickness of the tile itself.
