Outdoor tile for decks

by Cynthia
(Ottumwa,IA)

I added an adition to my house and over a part of the main floor I placed a roofline deck that is going to hold a hot tub.

The construction was done and had to be redone. the floor material is black stuff glued on to the wood sheets.

Now I find out I can't put flooring material down over the black stuff. I wanted some decorative tile or laminate flooring like river stone look and I can't put anything over the black stuff.

Is that right? I am so upset...

Tile-Dek would have been a good solution

It depends what the material is. If it is epdm rubber it is not really designed to have mortar and tiling over top of it. It could also be a number of roofing materials that also are not intended to be covered.

Its too bad you weren't able to read this article in our Real Deck Construction projects section about TileDek. This is a roofing membrane that covers a flat outdoor flooring surface and is designed to have mortar over it and tiles laid on top. This particular job was done in the harsh climate of Salt Lake City so it can handle high and low temperatures.

You can see this product and how it was used at this article.
