WHAT IS A STONE DECK?
The STONEDECKS products were conceived after over 20 years of installing and maintaining decks. Frustration with how everyday use caused decks to look terrible after just a few years inspired us to create a much better deck solution: STONEDECKS products.
My thought was that clients who are spending extra on a low maintenance composite decks only for it to look ugly in under a decade is simply not acceptable. While building a composite deck for a client I was finishing the project only to realize that a small pebble in my boot had scratched a composite board leading to a need to quickly replace it before showing and delivering the final results to my client.
I thought that there must be a better way to produce decks for clients that would stand up to regular daily wear and tear. Delivering decks that would not scratch or weather quickly yet are easily cleaned is how STONEDECKS products were born.
I started with a prototype that we refined over three years through rigorous research, development, testing and client feedback. The final result is a patent pending decking approach that could be installed without spending more than you would on a composite deck, yet could be enjoyed for many decades requiring very low maintenance.
WHAT MAKES STONE DECKS DIFFERENT
Tanzite Stonedecks are built on the same basic structure as any other deck. Tanzite costs about the same and the installation time is similar to other low maintenance decking options (like composite decking). This allows for labor costs to not be considerably different; keeping your overall investment similar.
Have you ever seen a 20 year old deck that still looks amazing? Costs such as replacing scratched boards, replacement of stained areas or of the entire deck (because it looks terrible), makes lifetime guaranteed TANZITE STONEDECKS the least expensive, lowest maintenance, and ultimately the best value for your money (even when purchasing a new deck).
You can easily convert a wood deck into a STONEDECK with little effort once constructed. Simply build a wood deck just like you would normally, except that you leave an inch clearance and put a 1% slope to it. Then enjoy your wood deck for a couple of years until it comes time to stain it, and rather than staining it you could cover it with some water protection and then with STONEDECK. This gives you the opportunity to update and upgrade to a STONEDECK years after a traditional wood one has been built. There is no other decking system that offers this level of flexibility in construction.
Rooftop decking is becoming more popular while the installation options are somewhat limited. A common way rooftop stone patios have been constructed is to install pedestals that then have to be leveled, and then float above the roof surface. However, this common approach can cause issues with weight limits when adding planting gardens, rock gardens, railing installation, etc… In many cases, TANZITE STONEDECK can be placed directly on the roof surface. This solves these issues and problems with pedestals, complicated installation, and can it reduce costs.
TANZITE STONEDECK patios & walkways look amazing and lasts a lifetime! Comparable to concrete and paving stones (which will discolor, fade, suffer abrasive wear, and stain over time), STONEDECK products are warranted for a lifetime providing significant longevity that stays looking amazing!
