So youve decided that its time to do away with your existing deck. Most likely you have an existing deck surface that is cracking and chipping with mold and drainage issues. The main issue when considering what product to choose for your remodel is how it will hold up over time. Thin pavers are the only permanent solution on the market today. The reason pavers are considered a permanent solution is due to the inherent durability of the product and the fact that they are not actually adhered to the existing surface but instead float above the deck. Even tile which will be adhered to the surface will end up cracking over time as that surface fails beneath. Any product for that matter which is adhered to the existing surface be it cool deck tile paint acrylic sprays river rock flagstone or stamped concrete will end up cracking over time.
Replacing entire sections of patio and outdoor stone surfaces is not uncommon when the ground underneath has become unstable. Once youve identified the problem area and the extent you can begin to fix tile and stone surfaces with relatively inexpensive textured primer epoxy coatings and refinishing kits. Different brushes can be used to mimic specific surfaces including a standard nap roller to produce a smooth though slightly textured finish a tile roller to produce a tiled finish and a stone roller that produces a finish resembling rough stone.

The final step which ensures a tight secure field is to wash joint sand over the newly installed pavers. This sand will fill any and all voids between each and every paver. Its only purpose is to ensure that none of the pavers move. Frequently homeowners are concerned by the presence of sand on their deck. We remind them however that you need not see this join sand. Thin pavers are at least an inch in thickness and the smallest amount say 1/4 of inch of joint sand between the bricks for this type of application will keep all of the pavers in place and secure for years to come.
