How Thick Are Patio Tiles?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: February, 2020 - Modified: June, 2023

There are many different styles and types of patio tiles - with each being made from a different material and designed to perform in different settings and situations. Different types of patio tiles also have different weights and thicknesses, typically outdoor patio tiles are less than 1 inch up to 2.5 inches thick, that can help determine the best choice for your project.

StayLock Perforated Tile - 9/16 inch Thick

9/16 in Thick Staylock Outdoor Patio Tile
StayLock Perforated Tiles are designed to allow for premium drainage in an outdoor deck or patio setting. These patio tiles are 9/16 inch thick and are made from super durable PVC plastic material. This provides anti-fatigue benefits and helps to maintain traction and comfort - even when walking or standing on the tile with bare feet or when the surface is wet. 

These patio tiles are connected with a loop-and-tab system that creates a floating floor which will not loosen or separate. They are made in the USA, come in a variety of colors, and are waterproof. If you want high quality at an affordable price, these are a great option!
