The Outdoor Floor System Difference from Other Floors

Taking it Outside for the Outdoor Floor System.

When seeking an outdoor floor system, most people talk about desiring one that will deliver not only superior aesthetics, bit also one that had either low to no maintenance, but above all they want the kind of durability that cannot be matched! That’s a tall order to be sure.

Unfortunately some sellers of these outdoor floor systems want to sell you a stone deck or perhaps a terrace with either tile or gauged stone. Well, perhaps that’s an answer, we’ll see, but one worries about what happens with the weather going under it since it is outdoors. Others want you to take on grade pavers with removable panels. Hmm, that’s a thought too, although one is told to consult a structural engineer if on a raised surface. Sounds expensive.

Well, how about modular wood tiles over a weatherproof polypropylene base? Well, that leaves the problem with water intrusion underneath which will allow all manner of things to grow such as mildew, with rotting small animals and insects as well as allowing germs and bacteria to flourish.

Then there is rubber flooring which is totally 100% water resistant. Yes, that’s true but it does not create a completely seamless, monolithic surface! Thus all manner of things can get under it as does the above. I am told though that it will outlast laminate, wood and outdoor carpet though, which is very true, but what about the substrate? How long will that last with rubber covering it? It does have one thing going for it, it is UV Resistant, and that’s important.

Now we come to the absolute best outdoor floor system, Silikal. It is totally waterproof as well as UV resistant, and it’s designed to last next to forever, usually the lifetime of your floor system. It can take all manner of weather, such as rain, extreme sun, or snow and all the other stuff in the middle. Durability is its middle name, thus you will never have repairs, and what’s more it will not need replacement.

Its colors will never fade offering you tremendous beauty besides reliability. It is incredibly easy to put down, and cleaning it is a total breeze. You can have a myriad of traffic over it, and it is still going to be as beautiful as the day it was installed.
