Easy 1,2,3 Installation
Prep the Surface
Make sure the surface being covered is relatively flat and free of anything that may get in the way of installation such as sticks, rocks or furniture. Then choose one corner of the area to begin working in. Optionally, you may snap a chalk line to have a straight line to follow during installation.
Set First Tile
Advantage wood-backed deck tiles are milled with four predrilled holes located in each corner. DeckWise® Tile Connector fits each of these holes with four specially designed ribbed pins (aka Pine tree fasteners). For a secure fit, simply set one of the tiles onto the preinstalled fasteners.
Set Additional Tiles
Once the first tile is laid, you can proceed placing the other tiles onto the remaining pins. The Deck Tile Connector automatically sets the gap spacing to 3/16" so you won't have to worry about an uneven look.
