Sort of...

You can use Bison Deck Suports and lay pavers on them. They are commonly used on flat roofs, but you could theoretically install them on a deck if you built it similarly.

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


thanks for the info guys. Greg, that bison system is real nice but this is just your normal backyard deck, and i wonder if it can work with an EP Henery. Joe the vastpaver is something new to me. i'm interested but i'll have to study it more. vastpavers are composite. i'll have to put one side by side with a masonary paver and check out the look. thanks again mike.

That's a new one on me.

Why would anyone want to do that anyway? The one in Joe's link was a nice looking deck, but the dropped down paver section looked way out of place, imo.

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


Joe, that's some awfully nice work you have there.

I really like the look and innovation of the pavers on an elevated deck.

I've done that before, but only for small sections, such as a stone pad under a BBQ or some such.
I'll have to keep it in mind when I desing new decks for customers.

It's surprising, though, how different our building codes are. For railings, for example, we are not allowed to go more than 4' between railing posts, and all the posts have to be mounted inside the rim joist, and must be blocked and mounted in 2 directions. To bolt them on the outside is simply no longer allowed here in Ontario.

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


deckman22 hay mon why do we do anything anyway. a very good running back for the eagles a few years ago said, once asked the question, why don't you go up and over the middle to catch a pass. his reply was FOR WHAT FOR WHO. but deck building is not pro football. i'm on my own out here. and we don't eat unless we makem happy. these pavers that are used as decking if done right could be the most maintenance free thing on this green planet mon.
If a common paver in a real nice color is in harmony, lets say with natural redwood, cedar or even IPE it just might OK.

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


I just got back from meeting with homeowners who want a dock that is surfaced with pavers. While the idea is intriguing, I don't have any experience with putting pavers on an elevated surface. Then again, it doesn't look like anyone has a lot of experience with putting pavers over joists! Not exactly the best of ideas. The link in the post above for Vast composite deck pavers appeared to be the solution (quite lightweight and nice grid system), but it appears that the pavers must be installed over an existing deck surface. While these homeowners do appear to have a lot of $$$, I don't think they're willing to pay to have their dock decked with PT SYP first, and then again with composite pavers. Ideas or suggestions, guys? Have a great Fourth!!!

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


I don't think you would have any other option. You're going to need some kind of a substrate to put the pavers on and I would want something that drains well in a harsh environment like a dock.

I just found a website for Brik-It. The website is Brik-It with a www and com on the end. It seems like a reasonable alternative. I've contacted them for info, but I'm sure I won't hear anything until early next week. I'll let you know what I find out.

Re: Elevated Wood Frame Deck With EP Henery Pavers In It.


I looked at a deck on one of the big hotels here a month or two back that had a elevated stone deck. All galv. steel frame in a big grid w/thick granite or marble layed in the grid pattern. Some of the stones were loose & woobled around when stepped on giving one an uncomfortable feeling, even for someone who's used to that sort of thing.

They were taking bids on an ipe deck to replace it. Would have been a tough job as the steel joist were too high, right under door threshold. I didn't get it so it was someone else's problem.
