Sterling Roof Paver System ProductsSterling roof pavers are suitable for countless applications. Prior to thinking about the install process, it’s important to prepare the sub-surface, which would ideally be properly cured concrete, asphalt, or other leveled and compacted sub base of 4 to 8 inches of aggregate.
Installing this paver system can be done without gluing them down, as they are simply glued to each other at their interlocking taps. The resulting surface is one that can hold patio furniture, endure foot traffic, and provide for a living space. This makes the product ideal for commercial installations, such as condos or office buildings. It is extremely durable, non absorbent, and aside from gray, is available in black, terra cotta, green, blue, and brown with matching colored corner ramps and borders.
The high quality manufacturing process that creates this product is second to none, which is why countless consumers have installed it for patio flooring, rooftop flooring, golf courses, deck surfaces, outdoor flooring, and more. Each tile is 2 feet by 2 feet, providing 4 square feet of coverage. They are also 2 inches thick. This product features a Shore A 60 hardness and a smooth flat finish. When it’s time to clean the roof pavers, just use hot water and a neutral pH cleaner, or, simply hose it off.
This paver system carries a limited lifetime warranty. The gray, terra cotta, green, brown, and blue tiles are all approximately $34 each, which equates to roughly $8.50 per square foot. The black tiles are approximately $30 each, which equate to roughly $7.50 per square foot.

They are designed to allow water to freely flow underneath them.
Each of the roof pavers weighs 27 pounds and measures 2 feet by 2 feet with 2.25 inches of thickness. They will not absorb water or freeze, making them suitable for all weather conditions.

This Blue Sky rubber roof paver system is aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain. As long as proper maintenance is practiced, the longevity and appearance of the product will remain strong from decades. Each spring, the pavers should be vacuumed and scrubbed, and a bi-annual cleaning with a hose, spray nozzle, and diluted detergent is recommended. It’s also a good idea to deep clean the product, as necessary.
This paver system creates a compression molding in the top surface of the tiles that creates a higher density than competing products have. Each of these tiles will cost about $32, which equates to roughly $8 per square foot of coverage. These roof pavers carry a 5 year limited warranty.
This product is a superior alternative for safety surfacing that meets and exceeds ASTM and CPSC guidelines. The tiles resist fading, and they will not mold or mildew.

Suitable for roof deck tops, playground floors, park surfaces, and school safety surfaces, these roof pavers are made from recycled rubber buffings or crumb rubber from reground automotive tires. Normal use may cause some color to rub off, which is normal when you choose this product family type. To clean the tile, just hose it off with water as needed. These tiles cost roughly $60 each, which equates to $15 per square foot of coverage. The product carries a 5 year limited warranty.
