A roof terrace is particularly exposed to all kinds of extreme weather conditions for a whole year. Therefore, roof terrace flooring needs to be not only completely frost proof, but generally resistant and durable.
Such are rubber granulate tiles, which last retaining their properties for about 15 years or more. A roof terrace paved with WARCO terrace tiles is also:
– dry (tiles are water-permeable),
– easy to maintain,
– fall- and sound-absorbing,
– high heel proof,
A roof terrace paved with these tiles can be used, as is usual, with garden furniture, planters or a barbecue. It depends on the size of the surface and on the individual conditions of installation and utilization, which product to choose. Basically, however, the thicker a tile is, the better it insulates and cushions but usually it is 30 or 40 mm tile.
A 2% incline is recommended to enable water outflow both on and under the flooring. Tile underside is profiled, that is equipped with drainage through which water runs away, following the gradient or water pressure. You can install a rainwater gutter or built-in drain.
