Customer Questions

Ask a Question
is the floor suitable for slightly uneven surfaces
brad toth
It is best that the subfloor surface be as even as possible so that the tiles stay snapped together.
Can I put composite deck tiles over grass?
Anonymous
Composite deck tiles are recommended to be used over a densely compacted and level surface to avoid potentially sinking in.
Can I put composite deck tiles over wood?
Anonymous
Composite decking tiles can be installed over wood and any other surface that is densely compacted and level.
Is Helios tile ok to install directly on EPDM flat roof? Any suggestions for decking on EPDM?
Lawrence Tuthill
Deck tiles are not recommended to be installed directly over EPDM roofing, as any sharp pieces underneath the floor could cause it to tear.
How do I cut composite deck tiles?
Anonymous
To cut composite deck tiles, you can use a sharp tile cutter or a hand saw.
How do I lay composite deck tiles?
Anonymous
Composite deck tiles are built with an interlocking system which allows them to be easily installed and interlocked to the tile on each side. It's like an easy to put together puzzle.
can tiles be installed over GEO GRID or TRUEGRID . These are honey comb gravel stabilizing products typically used in gravel drive way applications. I am installing a patio with foot traffic only
Bruce
The surface underneath the tiles needs to be dense enough and level enough to not allow the tiles to sink in/become unaligned.
How heavy an item can be placed on the tiles before the plastic connector base breaks? I am hoping to put some large (3x3x3') planters filled with dirt and trees on the deck.
Isabel
The breaking point is about 2000 lbs.
we tried walking on the IKEA version of this product and sounded hollow and loud (ikeas product seems cheaper made) does this muffle sound pretty well when walking on it?
Outdoor deck tiles can make noise when walked on. You can lessen noise by adding an underlayment beneath the tiles.
When the floor is completed, can water penetrate through when it rains? If so, what do you recommend underneath to prevent that?
Vincent Sica
These do allow for drainage so that rain does not stay on top of the tiles. The rain would just go underneath the tiles and eventually evaporate.
Hi, can these tiles be installed on a concrete patio? and do they need to install/put anything between tiles and concrete?
Rabia Hussain
These tiles can be easily installed on a concrete patio and would not need anything between the tiles and concrete.
Are the Helios Composite Deck Tiles non-combustible?
Allen
These tiles have not been tested for this.
Is there edging/trim available for this product?
We do not currently have edging.
Can the 4-slat tiles be installed perpendicularly or solely in a parallel manner and, if so, still allow for the installation of edge and corner pieces?
Fred
Yes, the Helios Deck Tiles can be installed perpendicularly. The edge and corner pieces can still be installed.
How much is the gap between each individual slat and each individual tile?
Chuck
The gap between each slat is approx 4.5mm and the gap between each tile would vary from 3mm to 5mm, depending on how tightly they are interlocked.
Are there end pieces available? If not, how do you lay to have finished edge? Thank you.
Yes, we do provide end pieces for our Helios Deck Tiles. These can be found under "Accessories" on the product page.
Can these be installed over older deck boards?
Our Helios Deck Tiles (4 Slat) can be installed over any surface that is densely compacted and level. The surface underneath the tiles needs to be dense enough and level enough to not allow the tiles to sink in/become unaligned. These tiles can be installed over older deck boards, as long as the deck boards provide even and solid support underneath.
Will these work on a deck in New England where the weather get down to 10 degrees?
Our Helios Deck Tiles are specially designed to stand up to harsh weather and outdoor environments and would work perfectly on your deck.
can this be installed over a rubber roof application (like on a flat roof)?
Dan
Our Helios Deck Tiles (4 Slat) are not recommended to be installed directly over EPDM roofing, as any sharp pieces underneath the floor could cause it to tear. Please see our Soft Flex Tiles which are rubber roof approved and are a great for option for rubber roofs!
Can these be installed over 2" of crusher fines? Or more/less depth recommended?
For best results, we recommend installing these tiles over concrete to ensure they stay interlocked and do not sink into any softer subfloor surface. Composite deck tiles are recommended to be used over a densely compacted and level surface to avoid potentially sinking in.
how do i apply helios deck tiles to wooden deck stairs
jim farrell
We currently do not offer stair trims for using these tiles on stairs.

Donna
You can lay our Helios Deck Tiles directly over a hard surface like concrete, asphalt, and even wood decks without an underlayment.

Zach
The percentage of expansion/contraction is 0.2%, we recommend leaving some space to be safe.
Good morning, I am trying to find the best composite deck tiles for my balcony which will generate the least amount of static electricity. This will be in place year round in upstate NY. Can any comment on this?
Kimberly Skiba
In general, composite decking material creates static. However, we have not had complaints regarding static on our Helios Deck Tiles. One option would be to apply an anti-static liquid on the tiles.
Can these be placed over a vinyl/pvc roof membrane?
Tyler
We wouldn't recommend using these tiles over a PVC membrane.
Will the deck tiles expand or warp in 90-100 degree heat?
Kim
The percentage of expansion/contraction is 0.2%, we recommend leaving some space to be safe.
What type of roofing materials do you recommend these tiles going on top of?
Ron
The recommended subfloors are hard surfaces like concrete, asphalt, and even wood.
Can these tiles be installed directly on asphalt roll roofing?
Jonathan Farrell
Yes, these tiles are best installed over a hard surface so asphalt would be a good subfloor.
I am entertaining the idea of putting these tiles on concrete steps. Is there any way to glue them down so that they stay put? They would be in the direct southern Arizona sun for several hours a day. Thanks.
Joan
We do not recommend using these tiles on stairs since we currently do not offer stair trims for using these tiles on stairs. These tiles are interlocked together and the weight of the tiles keeps them put on the floor.
Is this tile heat resistant? (such as a dryer vent blowing on it)
Composite decking tiles generally tiles are heat resistant in the sense that they won't get extremely hot, but will get warm when exposed to heat or higher temperatures.
can this be used outside where it rains and snows
We have not had any issues with customers using them during rains and snow.

Brent Lee Black
These tiles may not be the best fit for garage floors since you would need hard plastic tiles for garages that can carry the load of your car. Please see our garage flooring category.

Sharon Kirspel
Yes, these tiles can be cut to fit the area with a hand saw or a sharp tile cutter.

STEPHANIE LIPOMI
