Date Published: 10-29 - 2022
If you plan to do a lot of barbecue grilling on you deck or patio outdoor kitchen, keep in mind that not all outdoor flooring solutions offer the same resistance to intense heat. Take, for instance, rubber pavers and perforated plastic deck tiles. Both are excellent for providing a stylish look and increased comfort. However, the rubber pavers will handle much more abuse than the plastic varieties.
