Outdoor Flooring—better known as decking—for single family homes or condos is ready for an upgrade. Far to long, instead of the natural beauty of an outdoor floor, surface options have been limited to traditional composite decking boards, wood and plastics.
Not only have they limited the visual beauty of natural outdoor spaces but they often come with maintenance requirements.
If an upgrade to stone or tile is a consideration, it to comes with it's own issues: engineering for heavy load conditions and a not-so-dependable reputation for durability over time with cracking-popping tile and failing grout joints.
This is only possible with the engineered components of the GRATEDEX® Outdoor Floor System®. System assembly provides a strong substrate on which your thin gauge stone or porcelain tile, or paver grade material can be glue-bonded or dry-laid to create a new natural decking surface. And all without the use of traditional cement based mortars grouts or adhesives.
And even better, there is no need to rebuild. The Outdoor Floor System® is a strong light-weight deck underlayment assembly. No structural changes are required in most cases; direct fasten to joist framing or float over a simple uniform-slope waterproofing surface. GRATEDEX® supports the ancient beauty of stone decking in outdoor living spaces that wouldn't normally support the weight of a stone deck material.
