Frequently Asked Questions



Q. What uses are there for the tiles?
A. Any exterior areas such as rooftops, patios, decks, balconies, porches, and next to the pools, and interior floors such as sunrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and basements.

Q. Can I cut the tiles?
A. Yes, easily with any general saw blades. This is probably the only tool that you will need for the installation.

Q. Do I need to apply any finish to the snapping tiles?
A. The tiles come pre-finished with a sealer protecting against the weather. However, like any other exterior products, it’s recommended to retreat the wood occasionally with any deck finish available in your local stores or our Tile Maintenance Kit.

Q. How hard is it take to install the tiles?
A. Extremely easy. The tiles are designed like a set of jig saw puzzles that snap together with little force required. Anyone in the house can install the tiles in a couple of hours and enjoy the floor right away.

Q. Should I fill the gaps between the tiles with grout?
A. No. The purpose of the gaps is to make water drain away from the wood. Trying to fill them with any materials will only trap moisture inside the tiles.

Q. How many tiles do I need?
A. Each tile covers approximately one square foot. However, we recommend to add 10% extra tiles to your project. For example, it is advised to have 110 tiles ready to install a 100-sqft area.

Q. What are the tiles made of?
A. Only non-endangered, certified, and finest-grade exterior woods are carefully selected. The plastic bases are UV-resistant composition of polypropylene and polyethylene. The screws are marine-grade gavenized stainless steel.
