Question:

Do deck tiles have to be raised, or can they drain sufficiently on flat cement?

I'm redoing the deck in my back yard. I've discovered the possibility of using deck tiles (wood slats, or slate, etc.) but not until after I ripped up the existing boards. There is a cement slab under my current deck. Could I just install the deck tiles on that, or would there have to be some sort of drainage system underneath? Thanks for the help!

Answer:

the best starting place for your tile project is Lowe's or the HoDepot for classes in laying tile .. they hold these sessions on Saturday [[ hope that does not interfere with your work ]] the concrete is the perfect base to lay tile .... you should
