Install Silca System® – Stone Deck Installation

Deck installation has never been easier than with Silca Grates™. This revolutionary deck floor underlayment will provide unlimited opportunities to use paver stones, porcelain tile, travertine tile, and more for customized stone flooring. You are no longer limited to wood or composite decking when determining which flooring options best suit your style and deck plans.

Silca System® is ideal for a DIYer. Our product has been designed with ease of use as a top priority. You can find testimonials on ease of use here.

Silca System® is superior to other decking boards in maintenance and value. Wood decks need sanded, stained and weatherproofed as frequently as yearly. Composite decks warp and fade over time. When you compare other types of flooring to stone, stone comes out on top every time. Stone is a natural resource that will stand up to decades of heavy traffic and weather with minimal maintenance. Silca grates™ are now ICC-ES certified which means our grates meet or exceed building requirements.

Whether you’re wondering about the value a deck adds to your home, curious about building codes, or evaluating your deck for repairs, we’ve done our best to gather the answers to your Silca Installation related questions here.

As you install Silca System®, be sure to reference our instructions on how to install on your new or remodeled deck, as well as our deck code guide.

silca system stone tile deck testimonial

Silca grates allowed me to do “the impossible”. I didn’t have to worry about future problems and costs because of termites, rotting, or the effects over time of north Texas summer heat and winter freezes. “Grateful” is the appropriate word for how I feel about Silca grates! You made the impossible possible.
Your fan — Shelly Moore
