Certified for Any Situation

Made for permanent or temporary installations, East Teak's new deck and patio tiles are designed to be installed in a variety of areas. Builders have a choice between FSC-certified teak or ipe. The teak tiles naturally repel water and fungus, making them ideal for decking situations. The tiles have either straight or diagonal patterns and measure roughly 20 by 20 inches.
