By Lisa Hobbie Created: February, 2021 - Modified: April, 2024

Whether you’re planning a residential or commercial project, plastic decking tiles might be an ideal flooring choice. These tiles offer superior durability when compared to wood decking, and they often last for at least double the length of time you can expect wood to.

There are many other benefits to plastic decking tiles, too. They’re attractive and aesthetically pleasing, plus they’re easy to install and available in many different designs. Created to withstand the demands of an outdoor installation, these tiles can revitalize a worn deck and create a pleasant space that you can enjoy at your home for years.

At Greatmats, we stock many quality plastic decking tiles. We’ve shared some of our top options below to help you plan your project.

Perforated StayLock Tile

The Perforated StayLock Tile is one of our top decking tile products. It delivers the look of a classic black tile with several benefits that make it ideal for outdoor use. This tile “floats” over your existing subfloor, letting air and water circulate beneath the tile for faster drying and less chance of mold and mildew growth. The tile is made in the USA and crafted with highly durable, waterproof PVC plastic.

Thanks to their active locking connector design, these 12x12-inch black plastic decking tiles can be installed without glue or adhesives. The non-slip surface won’t separate unintentionally while in use.

With their 20-inch fall height rating, the tiles help to create a safe surface. Use them for outdoor deck tiles, pool surrounds, rooftop flooring, outdoor play areas, shower flooring, and spa areas. The tiles are highly versatile and are also available in several color options.

When these tiles need to be cleaned, you can do so quickly and simply with vinegar or baking soda and hot water. This product will cost about $4.50 per square foot.

Patio Outdoor Tile

The Patio Outdoor Tile is a fast-drying, non-slip textured PVC tile that is lightweight and ideal for many outdoor applications.

These 1x1-foot interlocking plastic decking tiles weigh just one pound and cover about one square foot, so one person can easily install them themselves. The tiles interlock and can be laid over concrete, wood, brick, and compacted base surfaces. Their snap-together design makes installation quick and easy.

Once installed, these tiles create a comfortable surface for walking and standing. When the tiles are wet, they drain quickly and easily to help prevent mold and mildew growth. They’ve also been UV-treated for durability.

Use these versatile tiles for pool surrounds, deck surfaces, and other outdoor spaces. They can also be installed and used in sports courts, boats, docks, waterparks, splash pads, locker rooms, and shower areas.

These tiles come in 4 different colors - gray, terra cotta, blue, and tan. They are a breeze to clean using a damp mop and common household cleaner.
