(And we'll try not to tempt you with any ACTUAL edible floors :) .)
Some people opt to remove deck tiles to store undercover or indoors over the winter and off season in an effort to extend the life and look of their tiles but many others chose leave them out all year round. It completely depends on your preference, and the intensity of any outdoor weather conditions. But, because deck tiles are easy to install and remove and install again, it's convenient to take them inside during the winter if you decide to go that route.
Regarding the water: When installed correctly, rainwater will drain, unimpeded, off the deck tile surface and, with proper post installation attention, under the deck tiles and off the structural sub surface. Just make sure to periodically check that dirt and debris don’t accumulate under the tiles and affect the drainage patterns. Standing or pooling water that persists for more than 12 hours after a rainfall indicate that existing drainage may be less than ideal and should be addressed prior to deck tile installation.

“There must be a better way to get high quality building materials into the customer’s hands more easily, and for less money.”
This idea is what motivated two friends Jeff Booth and Rob Banks to create BuildDirect, an online building materials company that is transforming the building materials industry. With the use of innovative technology and thinking, we sell flooring, tile, decking, siding, outdoor living products, and many others, and for less than you’d pay at retail.
Premium quality building materials are brought to market with fewer parties involved from the manufacturing stage. This means fewer costs, and customers pay less for the materials that will help them undertake transformations of their own – the creation of their dream homes, and all within a reasonable budget.
We hope to connect with you on Google+, and find out what kinds of transformations you’re making to your spaces.
