Annette Grooms decided it was time to cover up her dull concrete patio on her condo in Downtown St. Petersburg. St Petersburg, FL is located between the Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. This humid, subtropical region is susceptible to rainy seasons, cold snaps, and even the possibility of a hurricane.

This deck tile balcony that overlooks the Tampa Bay is the perfect lounge area to retreat to and relax.

Annette needed to take into consideration the weather when it came to her patio renovation, as well as finding a material that will allow her scuppers on her top floor condo to work as originally designed.

This deck tile balcony wraps around the entire condo giving sweeping views of St Petersburg and the Tampa Bay.

“We are thrilled with the way it came out! The wood is absolutely stunning!” says Annette. “We were looking for a soothing, lounge feel factor, and in our minds, that’s what we achieved.”

The stones and the ipe deck tiles bring a nice balance of colors to this top floor rooftop patio.

Advantage Deck Tiles® give you these benefits:

Deck tiles are simple to install and versatile, giving you many design options for your new deck.

The stones compliment the hardwood and allow for proper drainage of the balcony when it rains.
These 24” x 24” Ipe Deck Tiles were the perfect size for this walkway, and best of all, very few cuts were needed.
