Deck boards or tiles: Which should you choose?

Exterior parquet flooring comes in two forms: deck boards or tiles. Technically speaking, the two styles perform just as well as each other. Like with wood flooring, what will first guide your choice is the expected aesthetic effect, and then you’ll consider the support system on which you will install your outside floor.

01Deck boards: These are rectangular-shaped wood planks and are similar to parquet planks, which can screw down or clip (with no visible screw) depending on the desired result. Deck boards can have a smooth or striated surface. They are installed on a technical floor composed of floor battens (recommended distance: between 40 and 50 cm). Using wooden flooring on the inside and the outside of your house unifies the space.

02Deck tilesSquare tiles (often 500 x 500 mm) pre-assembled, made up of several wood strips spaced out and screwed down to two or three chevrons. Deck tiles are installed on an existing hard support or on floor battens. Their installation can be easier than that of deck planks. Deck tiles exist in several looks and give a rhythm to your deck’s floor.
