What is StoneDeck?
premium-quality natural slates, granites and quartzite with a
high strength composite backing. This system features a
fastening matrix that connects to the deck frame while
interlocking all structural panels in place. There is no mortar
or grout. The high-strength panels and interlocking matrix form
a structure that is flexible, yet strong enough to support 4,000
pounds per square foot.
What stone types and colors are available?
currently available in three slates: green, gray and
multi-color; two granites sand, china black; and a quartzite.
Lighter colors will be cooler if your deck is in direct
sunlight. As with any natural product, slight color variations
are to be expected. Color samples are available upon request.

Yes. Stone selection

withstand the elements much better than Slates.
Can StoneDeck be used to create a
balcony over a living space?

applications it is critical to first install a waterproofing
system such as a sloped waterproof membrane. The waterproofing
system is independent of the StoneDeck system. Installation
details for this application can be found in our supplemental

StoneDeck system will not crack. Unlike conventional mortared
tile that is rigid, StoneDeck is a flexible system that does not
