Interlocking Deck Tiles, Best Way to Give An Old Deck and New Surface

Rubber deck tiles and other flexible deck tiles are great options

By Paige Cerulli

Is your deck looking old and tired? Is it stained, sunbleached, or just plain uncomfortable against bare feet? If your deck isn't looking or performing like you want it to, you can cover it with a new surface to revitalize and protect the deck without the significant cost of rebuilding.

Interlocking deck tiles are a low-cost way to transform your deck into a safer, more attractive space while helping to protect the actual deck from wear and tear. Installing outdoor tile over a wood deck can help to protect you from splinters, while offering the deck protection from sun and wear and tear. Rubber deck tiles are one popular choice for installations over decks.

Here are just a few tile options that you can use to cover up your old deck.

StayLock Flexible Deck Tiles


StayLock Tiles are durable, comfortable underfoot, and look great installed on any old deck. These interlocking deck tiles have an active locking connector system to make for a secure, easy installation, and they won't separate over time. These roof deck tiles provide traction and comfort, and their perforated surface allows water to drain right through, so you can enjoy the deck right after a rain.

These tiles are available in five beautiful colors, and are UV stable for seven years.

Garden Deck Tiles


Do you still want the look of a wooden surface when installing outdoor tile over a wood deck? If so, the Garden Deck Tiles may be the perfect option for you. These interlocking deck tiles offer a natural woodgrain look in three different shades, and make a beautiful addition to any deck. They are also UV/color stabilized, so you can enjoy their eye-catching appearance for years to come.

Made of wood plastic composite, these tiles offer you a woodgrain aesthetic without any of the maintenance that actual wood requires. They are mold, water, and damage resistant, and will not rot, splinter, or warp. These durable tiles feature a raised base that allows water to quickly drain away, and the textured surface maximizes traction for increased safety. They're strong enough to support the weight of people walking on the deck and sitting in chairs, and are a simple and easy way to revitalize your old deck.

Interlocking Patio and Outdoor Deck Tiles


For a low-cost flooring option, consider our Patio Outdoor Tiles. These flexible deck tiles are made of PVC which gives them strength and durability, while also making for a surface that is forgiving and comfortable underfoot.

These tiles are ideal for outdoor use, and have a drain-through system to help prevent water from pooling on the surface. They are UV stable, so they'll retain their beautiful colors, and are both waterproof and slip resistant.

These tiles feature an interlocking system that makes for an easy installation. You can cut them with a sharp utility knife if needed, and can remove them in the future if you wish.

Sterling Interlocking Rubber Deck Tiles


Durable, low-maintenance, and easy to install, Sterling Roof Top Tiles are a popular option for use on top of old decks. These tiles are made of heavy-duty rubber that can withstand the harsh outdoor elements. Plus, with each tile weighing 24 pounds, these rubber deck tiles are heavy enough so that you don't have to worry about them being lifted away during a storm.

Rubber deck tiles provide plenty of benefits. They are extremely dense, but still provide a softer surface than cement or wood, which is particularly important in the case of a fall. At two inches thick these tiles are durable enough to withstand the weight of patio furniture and high heel traffic without being damaged.

With their interlocking edges, installing these rubber deck tiles is easy. You can install the tiles directly over your old deck surface, and the interlocking design creates a cohesive surface. You may wish to use adhesive on some tiles, all of the tiles, or none of the tiles, depending on the size of your deck and whether you want to be able to remove the tiles in the future.

Life Floor Rubber Foam Blend Slate Tiles


Looking for something that offers you a luxurious finish? Life Floor Slate Tiles are available in many designer colors and will truly give your deck an upscale, luxury feel. With a slate surface texture, your deck will look like you invested significant money for slate, but will be far more comfortable and safer than it would with actual slate flooring.

These flexible deck tiles are UV-stable, non-toxic, and anti-microbial, so they help to create a surface that's ideal for your whole family to enjoy. They are made of a foam-rubber blend, so they're comfortable underfoot. A slip-resistant surface helps to prevent falls and gives you plenty of grip, even when the tiles are wet. These tiles are an ideal way to give your deck the extra safety and grip you need when you use it during wet or humid conditions.

These tiles are designed for a permanent installation, and you'll need to install them over a hard, flat surface. Use commercial grade contact cement to secure the tiles, and you'll have a long-lasting safe and attractive deck surface.
