Exterior Roof Terrace Floor Tiles

Postby vickyo1 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 11:54 am

Hi I am new to the site and hope this question isn't too inane! I am planning to buy slate tiles for my roof terrace floor. Do you think 10mm thickness is enough or should it be more. The 30mm sample seems too thick and better suited to patio floor and the shop only has 10mm thick tile as the other option.

Look forward to hearing back from you. :)

Simply Build It

10mm should be OK but you need to check the existing structure is suitable for such a covering. Questions relating to strength and flexing must be considered.
