Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Are there any stores that carry these tiles? I need them and would love to have them - however the shipping costs are outrageous.
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles are not carried in any stores. These tiles are made in our facility in CA, and shipping to our east coast customers can be a little pricey. For our customers on the east coast, our 1" Monster Tiles are a great alternative for this product. We do offer the best shipping rates for flooring products, but if you still feel the pricing is too high, please feel free to contact one of our flooring heroes for further assistance.
I have a deck off my master bedroom and over my garage. It has a black rubber roof surface in mostly direct sunlight. Are these tiles safe to place over a rubber roof surface?
Sean Serafino
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles were specifically designed to be installed over a rubber roof surface without damaging it. The tiles allow water to flow through and under the tiles so that weight will never be an issue.
Are your tiles class A rated per the IBC with a smoke developed index of below 450 and a flame developed index of below 75?
Since our Deck Top Roof Tiles are made for outdoor use, they are not tested for fire rating.
How much water can the tiles handle in terms of drainage? Is there a point at which the grooves underneath can't handle all the water?
We have no specific testing for the drainage rate for our Deck Top Roof Tiles, but we have installed these tiles all over the US and Canada even in areas that experience hurricane events and these tiles have held up the copious amounts of water that can occur during these events.
I received my tiles but there are no holes for the dowels. What size drill bit do you recommend and is there a jig to get the dowel holes consistent and straight?
The drill size is 9/32 and is 2" thin for the holes. We don't recommend drilling your own holes, but if you need to, this would be the size of the hole needed.
Do the roof tiles come with dowels needed and are the tiles pre-drilled for the dowels?
If you order the dowels, our Deck Top Roof Tiles will be drilled with the necessary holes so that you can use the dowels purchased. If you order your flooring without dowels, we will not drill holes in the tiles.
When do you need the dowels? I have a rubber membrane roof that we are installing these over, and I'm wondering if I need the dowels?
You can install our Deck Top Roof Tiles without dowels or with dowels. It just depends on what method of install that you prefer. We recommend using the dowels as not to damage the rubber membrane roof surface. Also when using the dowel method, the floor is more of a floating floor, so if there were any issues with your roof, you can remove the tiles, fix the issue, and then replace them. If you are looking for a more permanent installation and don't have any concerns with your roof being damaged, you can glue the tiles down.
Would they stand up to a horse on them? Looking for permeable floor mats to install over concrete.
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles can handle a horse walking over them.
Can these tile be placed over a wooden deck? Also, does the tile soak up water then releases it through the bottom?
You can install our Deck Top Roof Tiles over a wooden deck. These tiles are very easy to install and maintain and work as a great outdoor deck flooring option. These tiles are very slip resistant and are also mold and mildew resistant. These tiles do not soak up water but allow it to pass through the tile to the subfloor underneath. If the subfloor is an open deck with openings, then the water will flow to the ground below. If it is a solid surface, it will follow the grade of the deck and flow to a drainage system.
How are they secured, so they don't blow away during a storm on a rooftop? I have an open deck 24' up, on the shore.
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles are able to stay down to due to the weight of the floor. The tiles use a dowel system to interlock with each other which helps to keep the whole floor down. For extreme cases, you can glue the tiles down to secure them properly.
Can this be installed on a sloped roof but level? Do you have a system for this?
You can install our Deck Top Roof Tiles on a sloped roof. We would recommend gluing the tiles to the roof to keep them in place. You will want to use a polyurethane adhesive for this.
I live on the east coast and currently have a flat fiberglass roof deck. Are these safe for fiberglass?
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles are safe to install over a fiberglass rooftop.
Can these be installed over a torch down roof?
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles can be installed over a torch down roof.
Is any test data available regarding the sound deadening qualities of your rooftop deck tiles?
Jerry Stanton
No, we do not have data on that.
How hot do they get in direct sunlight? Too hot for bare feet?
Elizabeth Johnson
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles will get warm in direct sunlight. These tiles will be cooler than concrete in direct sunlight, but depending on where you live, they could be too hot to walk across barefoot. To keep these tiles cool in the middle of the day, we recommend hosing them down periodically. Since these tiles are made from rubber, they are very slip-resistant and even more so when wet. Also, they are porous, which means they will not pool any water on their surface.
We have a roof off out bedroom which has a hip roof. How flexible are the tiles and would they be able to flex to a slight change in grade?
David S
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles are somewhat flexible and could be installed over a roof that has a very slight change in grade. If there is a larger change in grade, we recommend cutting the tile to fit the grade.
Do the dowels come with the squares?
Dowels are available for purchase separately. These can be found on the product page under "Accessories".
How are the dowels installed?
The dowels for our Deck Top Roof Tiles are installed the same way dowels or pegs are installed in furniture from places like IKEA. The dowels would be installed into the tiles horizontally.
Can these be glued to the face of a concrete porch? They would be perpendicular to the porch floor.
Our Deck Top Roof Tiles can be glued to the face of a concrete porch. You would use a polyurethane adhesive to adhere the tiles to the concrete.
