Deck Remodeling & Deck Resurface / Restore Instructions

1. Preparing for Silca System® Stone Deck Installation – Remove all horizontal flooring (5/4 treated lumber, composite lumber, etc) from your existing deck. RECOMMENDATION: Framing and footing should be inspected by a qualified building official to make sure they are in line with all state and local codes.

2. If you have sufficient threshold height, you may screw the Silca Grate™ on top of your floor joists. Be sure to consider the stack height and desired floor finish height. (See illustration two on this page.)

3. If you do NOT have ample threshold height, you must add 2×4 cleat on each side of the floor joist. NOTE: Maintain correct height while fastening on joist.

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
