We develop "plans" (sets of drawings) specific to our clients needs, we do not sell the plans outside of our architectural services. If you are interested in our design services, I would be glad to speak with you. Best!

Gorgeous Deck! - Aesthetically, I love the appearance of this deck. I have never walked on an Ipe or Teak tiled deck--does it feel not as "solid" as a standard deck?

Yes it certainly does. This was a concern of my clients. There is no flex, even when an adult jumps on it!

Weather proofing - I have been reading that these tiles tend to expand and contract with the weather. Are there any tiles that are not made of hardwood that would not have this problem? Some sort of manmade material like Trex decking?

Love these tiles. What company were these tiles purchased from? We have a 1700 sq.ft area would these tiles work?

The manufacturer is Bison. As you might expect there are many factors to consider when specifying products for particular conditions. You should consult with an architect or contractor to confirm that these are appropriate for your situation. Good Luck!

Do you have to have the area cleared before putting them down? Can they be used on grassy areas? - I have just recently moved into a house and have some patio furniture, but don't have the time to put in a patio right now, so wondering if these can be used on grassy areas?

when installed how are they flush with the sliding door entry because wouldn't they sit higher?

We removed the existing brick patio, so we had enough height to flush out with all the doors.

Hi, it doesnt cost a lot to ship to India. We have exported products, pavers, bricks and roof tiles to India and sold very well. Please let me know how much quantity you need and I will try to work out the price for you.
Thanks,
Irene.
P.S you can also email me to thireneguan@gmail.com for more details.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Courtyards are almost always paved in stone or gravel, but this one uses interlocking wood deck pavers. Using wood instead of stone is appropriate to the scale of a courtyard bound by one-story walls. Like the introductory image, the living space is centrally located and opens to the landscape, but the overall composition is informal for this home.The courtyard house plan integrates the use and relationship of the exterior with the functions of the interior, and allows light and air flow into all primary interior spaces as the house itself creates the landscape.More: The L-Shaped House PlanThe Dogtrot House PlanLiving La Vida Linear The U-Shaped House
Kenny Grono added this to Contractor Tips: Build a Top-Notch Deck
3. What deck material is best for you? If your deck is to be built at grade or on top of a roof, think about whether you will need access to the space below the deck in the future. The deck in the picture is built from modular panels that can be removed for access to the space below. If building over a roof or patio with a slight pitch, adjustable deck supports such as those from Bison can make leveling the deck much easier.

I particularly like the alternating squares of this decking, and I like that you can see the view all the way through the house too.
Laura Gaskill added this to 6 Ways to Rethink Your Patio Floor
Deck tiles. This innovative material is designed to be snapped together, creating a modular deck practically anywhere. It's perfect for covering up an unattractive surface or creating a new patio quickly and easily.Estimated cost: $4 to $10 per square foot, depending on the material and sourcePro or DIY? Easy DIYProcess snapshot: Snap together the tiles in whatever configuration you choose. Depending on the tiles, you may also need to stain and seal them to protect them from the elements.
