5 Reasons Why your New Deck Should Be Masonry or Stone

If you’re planning to install a deck on your home as a ‘Do It Yourself’ summer project, you’re probably trying to make your mind regarding, whether to use treated wood or one of the composite products as your decking material, but what if you had a separate option that permitted you to add the beautiful look of masonry or stone to your elevated decks?

Masonry and Stone Options for Elevated Decks

Upscale landscaping companies aren’t very idle all summer as they are busy in building beautiful backyard stone and masonry patios for discerning customers. In the recent times, if homeowners wish to get elevated decks, composites and treated wood were their only preferences as a decking material. You can now include stone and masonry to your list of decking material suggestions by using Silca Grate on the structural portion of your deck.

Silca Grate is an underlayment decking material that spans your deck joists and permits the use of stone, pavers, brick, or even tile on your deck floor. Silca Grate is extremely DIY friendly and designed for normal 16-inch joist spacing. Some of the benefits of having a stone or masonry deck floor instead of the more common composite products or treated lumber:

  1. Spend your free time relaxing on your deck rather than spreading expensive sealant,
  2. Stone and masonry products don’t fade due to the weather like some composites,
  3. You and your family won’t get splinters from stone and masonry
  4. Stone and masonry products are fireproof – you should be able to grill or use a portable fire pit on your deck if you stay away from the home and any overhangs,
  5. Stone and masonry don’t warp like treated wood does.
