Bring New Life to Outdoor Porches or Verandas with Deck Tiles
Your front porch is normally the first part of a home that visitors see, so you want it to appear friendly and welcoming, suggesting a sense of fun... not appearing as a closed face, shut off from the world. But all too often, the front porch sits tired and neglected.
Maybe you have an outdoor porch whose glory days are well gone.... with boards decayed or cracked with age. Or maybe you have an old concrete porch that just looks dull and lifeless... certainly not offering the warm welcoming appearance you would like.
One of the simplest solutions is to lay HandyDeck decking tiles right over the top of the existing porch surface. As long as the individual wood boards are structurally sound, you can simply lay the interlocking tiles directly over the lot. Just click the tiles into place and in no time at all, you'll have brand new, solid wood porch floor. And for a neat, professional finish to the outside edges, reducer strips are available which just clip onto the outer row of tiles.
Since HandyDeck decking tiles are available in different styles and colors, you can design an individual front porch design to suit your personal taste. You could for example run a border around the outside of the porch or maybe make a special feature in front of the main entrance. And if you eventually get tired of one design, that's no problem.....just lift up the tiles, move them around and put them down again in another pattern.
If its a concrete porch rather than a wood porch you want to cover, its an even easier task and the results can be even more dramatic. Once again it's just a simple matter of just clicking the tiles into place over the existing concrete base.
Best of all, there's no need for any tedious surface preparation. In fact you can cover a typical porch or veranda in just an hour or so... ready for you to use the moment the last tile is snapped into place.
If you need to cut the SwiftDeck or ResiDeck wood tiles to fit around pipes or posts or to fit the tiles snugly against the walls, it's easy to cut them with just a normal handsaw or jigsaw. If it's a complex shape you need to fit, making a template first of stiff card can make the task of cutting exactly the right size and shape a lot easier.
