The BEST Wooden Deck Tiles for your Balcony In 2021

Exotic Wood Decks

Current market research has shown that consumers have shifted their buying philosophy. 

Consumers are more focused on long-lasting value rather than convenience, and some clients are willing to invest a larger budget for products that offer longevity and aesthetics. When choosing outdoor flooring options, clients in the Greater Toronto Area want to select products that provide longevity, weather resistance and performance.

In addition, consumers want aesthetically pleasing products that can withstand various climate changes in Toronto such as sun, snow, rain, high wind, and ice. While exotic wood decking tiles have a higher price point, they offer your urban outdoor living space the same advantages as traditional patio and balcony flooring. If you are looking for a wooden deck tile that can provide you with sustainability and longevity over the long haul, you need not look any further than exotic wooden deck floor tiles.

While there are many exotic wood deck tiles to choose from to give your balcony or patio an upgraded, luxurious look and feel, below are a few options and our top three recommendations for exotic wood deck flooring. No matter which wood deck floor you choose for your outdoor living space, with these options, you are bound to select a floor that will work for your design and performance needs. 

Let’s begin our journey into the world of exotic wood deck tiles.

Exploring Options for Exotic Wood Deck Tile

Suppose you want to update and elevate your existing balcony flooring to an upscale and luxurious finish. In that case, exotic hardwood deck tiles may be the right option for you and your family.

The elements can wreak havoc on your balcony flooring with unpredictable weather patterns and seasonal changes in the Greater Toronto Area. Exotic wood deck tiles are an ideal option that performs under the harsh Toronto climate.

As previously mentioned, there are many options of exotic wood deck flooring tiles to choose from. While the following list is not an exhaustive list of available options, Skyscapes Balcony and Patio flooring has found that clients often inquire about the following wooden deck options. 

Garapa, Ipe and Curupay exotic wood deck flooring tiles create an exotic, luxurious and inviting outdoor balcony and living space. 

Ipe Wooden Deck Tiles

An exotic wooden floor deck tile is the most substantial wood deck tile available on the market. Sourced through naturally sustainable manufacturers and known for their ecologically friendly nature, Ipe wooden deck tiles are not only structurally sound but provide a chemical-free, non-toxic way to increase the value and appearance of your outdoor space. 

The dense nature of the wood itself is not prone to splintering and offers natural resistance to environmental assaults such as mould and mildew and insects such as termites.

Garapa Wood Deck Tiles

Garapa wood deck tiles are close to the gold standard of deck tiles, Ipe wood. While Garapa provides similar properties and performance, it does come with a lower price tag.

Garapa wood tiles are lighter in colour. Clients who prefer lighter wood tones will appreciate Garapa wood tiles for their honey-brown tones. Over time, as Garapa wood deck tiles age, they will turn a silvery-grey colour. Like Ipe wood tiles, Garapa wooden flooring provides outstanding durability, fire resistance and protection against termites and other tiny insects known to target wood flooring.

The dense and durable nature of Garapa wood’s resistance to rot makes it an ideal wooden deck tile for areas around pools or in regions such as Toronto, where high humidity and rainfall are an issue.

Curupay Wood Deck Tiles

Curupay wood deck tiles, also known as Patagonian Rosewood, are another example of a durable exotic wood deck tile. Like its counterparts, Curupay wood flooring is mould and mildew resistant, naturally safeguards against termite infestation, and is resistant to rot and decay.

This sustainably grown wood tends to have a natural striped wood grain that runs throughout. Its undertone, which is a rich brown and yellow, is pleasing to the homeowner who favours a lighter appearance to their balcony or patio wood tiled floor. However, one versatile feature to note is that with Curupay wooden deck tiles, they will darken over time with prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Curupay is also highly durable and will withstand warping, cracking, splintering, and any other wear and tear that your deck faces from continued use.

Final Thoughts

The Eco-friendly, luxurious look and feel of Exotic Wood Tile Floorings, such as Ipe, Garapa and Curupay, provide any homeowner with an attractive and elegant solution to many outdoor flooring design needs. They are easy to install, have anti-slip properties as well as they have a natural ability to protect against mould and mildew, pests and wear and tear while providing longevity and overall satisfaction.  

With their preassembled, interlocking design, Ipe, Garapa, and Curupay wooden deck flooring are:

Installations are quick, easy, and in some instances will only take hours to install–instead of days.
