I purchased 21 boxes of these to lay on my screened in lanai. When ordering I split my order to 7 boxes each so that UPS would deliver and shipping would be cheaper. First off, I am a 72 yr. old woman who weighs 130 lbs. I installed all 21 boxes by myself, taking 2 days. I used my golf cart to transport the boxes 6 at a time to the lanai at the rear of my house. Because I wanted the pattern as shown in the ad, I laid out one row at a time. Then I simply snapped them together. I had to cut off some of the plastic tabs on the house wall using an utility knife. For the last row I needed to remove more so I cut with my Dremel, after moving some of the screws on the back so that each row had 3 screws. What a sight I was, using old kitchen chair pads as kneeling pads. All I have left to do is brush on a water repellent. I'm so proud of my work & these Eucalyptus deck tiles are just beautiful and the quality is as good as it gets.
Owning a flooring installation company, I have seen many products, and have installed many products. This flooring was a genuine suprise. It is extremely attractive, and extremely well built. I installed an 8x15 lanai with this product, it took a half hour to do,and is gorgeous. even when needing to cut to size for the walls, it handled beautifully on the mitre saw. Thank you for making my wife a happy girl.
Really easy to install. We put down 23 boxes of them. The only thing I would recommend is if you are putting them down in a room using several boxes, rotate tiles from each box so the colors of the wood mix around because they are Not identical in color. If you use one box at a time you will have a big square one shade of wood and then another big square a different shade of wood. Alternating the color and direction of the tile as seen in the picture is best.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. We love them. We put them in our screen porch. They look great. Much better than we ever expected!!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great
I bought 2 of these to make a little seating area under my tree. They look nice and I have just enough area to sit 2 chairs and a small table. I bought them 1 month ago, I live in Colorado so the tiles have already stood through hot sun a blizzard and a heavy rainstorm and they held up and look great! I will buy more as soon as I finish my garden area. I love them!
I bought these tiles this past spring, and we are now in the end of summer early fall and I am already seeing the tiles starting to come apart. Ive had to buy extra boxes to replace the ones that came apart, but I can see that this is going to be an ongoing issue. If I had known there were better products out there I would have waited and looked into some of the others. I must say Im concerned about how these will hold up this winter.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? similar, although there were splotchy stains from the manufacturer and many tiles were stuck together, obviously packaged while still wet
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very poor, these tiles fee apart on me and the wood started to come loos in the areas I walk on most often
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate
Looks great when installed in 09, but less than 5 years in and the black plastic backings are completely falling apart to the extent that some are crumbling. They started this 2 years ago and i replaced a couple but now I need to replace almost half. Would never buy again to use on a closed in patio. These thing just flat out suck, as happy as i was when i first installed them that is how disappointed i am now. ** down the drain, should have gone with stained concrete.
First, the company no longer sells the edging and corner pieces so that you can create a "finished" looking deck, or area. You're stuck with these lousy plastic bits stick out the side. And, a sudden drop off. Just from that, my suggestion is to skip these.
Sadly, I'd already bought them and the project was moving forward and I didn't really have a timely alternative.
These may be ok if the size of your deck is 5' x 5' or something really small, and the surface you're planning on putting them on is perfectly flat. But any larger, or if the surface is uneven, and you're dealing with a big pain to get them put down, connecting correctly, etc. You end up trying to put one tile in place and the one next to it pops up. And then the whole row isn't quite straight anymore, and then you have to pull up twenty of them to "fix" it. All in all, I was trying to do an area 24' x 15 feet with these and it was just a nightmarish mistake.
It took *hours*, and, the result looks pretty bad.
So, you've been warned. Just don't buy them, really. Find a different alternative.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product was very difficult to put together
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was fine, except it said these are easy and good looking... they aren't, and aren't.
We purchased these for our screened patio porch. The raised platform was just what we needed to even out the low spots where water collected on the porch. If you really need height, these will not do it.
Everyone who sees our floor thinks it looks great. It was fairly easy to put down. Some pieces clicked together perfectly but others needed some cutting and finessing to get them together. I did have to cut some of the slats in 1/2 to fit and my chopsaw did NOT like the multitude of screws used to attach the wood to the plastic platform (but how can you complain that the wood was attached "too much!" !! I then used Liquid Nail to re-attach the wood to the plastic bottom at my cuts.

If I put this on my deck how well will it hold up in the snow and cold weather ?bronze1956 on Sep 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The snap tiles are made from Eucalyptus wood and are kiln fired to treat and then sealed. The manufacturer says they should last in the cold and snow as well as any other type deck material as long as you take care of it properly.

I have a flat area in my yard that I want to put a small patio but the ground is very hard to dig with only maybe an inch of soil before hitting rock. Would I still need to dig down and install a sand base or should it be alright as long as it is level?buscogal on Aug 20, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This should be alright with out a sand base. Eventually this will sink in to the ground though.
