Simulated Wood TilesLow maintenance simulated wood interlocking deck tiles
If you’re looking for an easy to install deck tile that won’t fade, won’t crack, splinter or rot or require regular applications of decking oil, then ResiDeck simulated wood interlocking tiles can be your best solution.
Due to the special co-extrusion manufacturing process, these tiles are not only impervious to moisture, but they resist both stains and mold and mildew. The slats are formed by extruding an extremely durable and moisture resistant ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) capping over a cellular PVC core. The capping is lightly textured and features a simulated wood grain appearance.
On the underside of the tile a plastic grid incorporates a large number of ‘feet’ that not only allow water to flow away freely from under the tiles, but also distribute weight evenly over the substrate the tiles are installed on.
Unlike most conventional composite wood tiles, ResiDeck co-extruded cellular core tiles contain no wood or bamboo fibers which tends to increase the potential for mold or mildew formation and also makes them more susceptible to staining. Consequently ResiDeck decking tiles feature enhanced stain resistance, fade resistance, mold and mildew resistance, and because they do not absorb water, they show very little difference in color between their wet and dry states.
ResiDeck tiles are lighter than most natural wood tiles due to their cellular core, so in locations where they may be fully exposed to strong winds or where the outer row of tiles is not butted against any retaining wall or other solid structure, we suggest attaching a length of L shaped aluminum profile or a specialized edge strip e.g. similar to Schluter Systems BARA-RWL to the outer edge of the tiles to form a continuous row of interconnected tiles.

NOTE: Polymer products have a relatively high coefficient of expansion and can expand up to five times that of steel. They are also good insulators, which means that temperature variations across the thickness of a section of plastic or plastic composite may cause some elastic deformation where the material is not constrained in any way. Normally such deformation disappears when the surface temperature is returned to its normal state. As a consequence of this phenomenon, composite deck tiles may display a slight curvature along the length of the tile when directly exposed to very hot sunlight. The tiles will normally return their regular state overnight.
