If you’ve invested in a set of our popular weatherproof patio tiles, you’re going to want to learn how to properly care for them. Not only will this help them last longer, but it’ll also allow you to keep your patio and balcony flooring looking great.
It’s not impossible to care for your weatherproof patio tiles. In fact, there are a few techniques, tips, and other things you can do to keep them in good condition.
In this article, we are going to explore 4 ways you can easily care for your weatherproof patio tiles.
1. You’ll Need to Oil Your Weatherproof Patio Tiles One Day
While your weatherproof patio, deck, and balcony tiles come pre-stained and finished, this finish will not last forever. Now, you’re probably wondering, how will I know when to refinish them? The answer to this question will heavily depend on how often you walk on your outdoor flooring, how rough you are on it, and how exposed to the elements it is.
We recommend that you thoroughly clean and oil your tiles once per year. However, do not sand your weatherproof patio tiles. They come with a natural finish that doesn’t require sanding. From our experience, a quick wash will remove most surface debris, making them ready for your finishing oil.
Like any high-quality flooring, the more you care for it, the better it will look and the longer it will last.
2. Clean Your Patio Tiles Regularly
We mentioned it above, but one of the best ways to care for your weatherproof patio tiles is to clean them regularly. While it may seem pointless to clean an outdoor floor, your patio tiles are made of wood and the last thing you want to happen is for sharp debris like stones, rocks, and glass to etch into the cracks and damage your tiles.
When accidents happen, clean them up right away. It’s important that you remove any debris that can potentially damage your floor before it becomes a problem.
3. Understand Your Warranty
Most companies will offer you a warranty for any weatherproof patio tiles that you purchase. Here at Urban Balcony Flooring, we offer a standard 10-year warranty.
Should you have any problems at all, we urge you to call us so we can help you fix these problems right away. If you’re paying for a premium floor, you deserve to receive a premium floor. No exceptions!
4. You Can Easily Replace Damaged Tiles
Sometimes accidents happen and there’s nothing you can do. Just like laminate flooring, our weatherproof patio tiles can easily be popped out and replaced should an individual tile become damaged.
This provides you with a great deal of flexibility as you are able to replace problem areas that may become damaged from freak accidents like a falling tree, a patio collapse, or something else.
Our tiles are snapped into place using a modular system. This means they can easily be snapped in and out.
