Deck Tiles: A Solution for Roofs, Patios and More
Rooftops and other decks of limited elevation can present challenging design issues. A good work-around of many difficulties is provided by deck tiles and Hanover Elevator® pedestals.
The Hanover Elevators® are the best such product on the market—that’s the reason we offer this system exclusively.
Incorporation of Hanover Elevators® and Compensators® can accommodate construction up to 24” above the working surface. EPDM shims are available to make finish leveling a snap! Use of bracing to comprise the working grid in concert with the tile-lock system creates a sturdy deck that can last a lifetime. In cases where some roof access is necessary occasionally, these deck tiles are just what the roof doctor ordered!
Setup is simple—just layout the grid (2×2 tiles or custom sizing available), and start the placement of the elevators.
The first thing one notices about the Hanover pedestals is their sturdiness. These pedestals are thick, and are built to last. Projects with other products specified should strongly consider this Hanover system as an affordable and superior alternative.

I’ve written before about design alternatives that can accomplish just about anything outside of the two-foot limitation of the Hanover product.(link to WD art) These on-site grids can do the trick as well, so depending on the severity of the roof slope, you can choose the method of tile installation that is right for your job.
