Floating Deck Tilers Auckland
It’s the latest bid in ways of preventing homes and businesses from leaking and has now become an industry standard and Council Regulation for deck coverings.
Under the Auckland City Council’s Amended Practice Note for external and internal membranes (Document number: AC2234, version 3, tiles and paving stones are now required to be removed at any time to allow access to the waterproofing membrane below.
Of course, usual methods of fixing tiles do no longer apply under this new Amendment, enter deck jacks.
Manufactured by New Zealand companies like Nurajack, these adjustable disks simply rest on top of the waterproofing membrane without the use of any adhesives or mechanical fixtures.
They are height adjustable and come in a variety of heights to allow the tiler to create a perfectly flat surface and if the conditions allow; even create a uniform surface from indoors to outdoor for a natural flow.
To suit the new requirements of floating decks, tile manufacturers have come up with specialized outdoor tiles that can accommodate the increased pressures from not being fixed to a solid surface.
New Porcelain tiles come in 20mm thicknesses or more, they are reinforced and can withstand the heaviest of traffic, be it commercial tiling or residential.
JB Tiling has experience in laying floating deck tiles in both residential and commercial settings and can create a council approved surface for your outdoor area that not only looks amazing, it’s also tough and sturdy to withstand all conditions.

Cracked or chipped tiles are also no longer a concern since the tiles are not glued down to the substrate.
They can be simply lifted off the jacks and a new one can be placed back in the empty section. If it’s a full tile that doesn’t require cutting, you won’t even need a tiler to come back to replace it.
