    Any idea if these pavers are made of the same material as the decking involved in the lawsuits?

    The pavers are mostly recycled tires so, no, they aren’t at all the same as their decking. It’s a pretty neat product. I just installed a little bit of them for an outdoor shower. I couldn’t get my landscaper to take the project so I had to do it. The only frustration was sanding the joints. The sand really just vibrates through.

    There’s no steel deck frame system out there that a non welding homeowner can deal with, is there?

    Looks like a great idea to me. I’m not a engineer but I would beef up the joists . It looked like they added extra joists in the pictures. I’m also wondering how long the greats would last.

    They’re pretty beefy imo. I bought one just to check it out first hand as pics don’t do it justice from their wenbsite.

    I know that from working on cars and such it seems that in time plastic parts become very brittle and break easy. On the other hand pvc pipe and decking parts seem to last. I would like to hear some other thoughts about it.

    VERY OLD THREAD WARNING.

    Just to follow up for anyone reading this, I have abandoned the Silca grate system idea and I’m moving to clad my deck with the PaverDeck substructure system.

    I started a new thread of this Paverdeck pursuit here in this thread…
