A. IntegraStone is an engineered exterior tile system for decks, patios, balconies, rooftops and stairs. Each large format tile is individually handcrafted by skilled artisans, giving it the look and feel of natural travertine stone. The inherent strength and composition of IntegraStone enables it to have incredible flexural and compressive strength. These characteristics make it possible to withstand the constant expansion and contraction of Northern freeze thaw cycles. It's this integrity within our tiles that enables IntegraStone to last for generations. Our goal is to create a space—an extension of your home—that allows the beauty of your interior living to flow seamlessly into the outdoors.
A. IntegraStone utilizes the next generation of pre-cast lightweight high performance fiber reinforced concrete. For its size, IntegraStone is the lightest and strongest hard surface structural flooring materials available today. In addition to its relative lightweight materials, IntegraStone incorporates the same fiber technology that is used to make fighter jets lighter and stronger. Most people are aware of how brittle tile and concrete can be. IntegraStone has the unique ability to flex without breaking, because of its strength and high quality materials.
A. IntegraStone tiles are engineered to be installed over a variety of surfaces. Surfaces like wood, concrete, steel, EPS (Styrofoam) and vinyl membranes. So if you’re looking to build new or retrofit an existing structure, IntegraStone has the versatility to perform on almost any outdoor application. Whether it’s a walkout deck, patio, balcony, rooftop or stairway. IntegraStone opens up new design possibilities that were not available before. The goal is to maximize your outdoor space to create an environment that is as useful and comfortable as the inside of your home.
A. 24" X 24" tiles weighs 35 lbs or 16 kg (8.5 lbs per sq ft).
A. IntegraStone is highly resistant to rain, sun, freezing temperatures, most acids and industrial chemicals, deicing salts, cleaning agents (except aromatic solvents).
A. IntegraStone is more slip resistant than ceramic and porcelain tiles and vinyl surfaces. Testing from the Tile Council of North America revealed a slip co-efficiency rating for dry surfaces .83 and wet .74 ASTM C1028. Click here to view ASTM testing.
A. IntegraStone can be used on decks, stairs, patios, rooftops, terraces and balconies.
A. IntegraStone does not use traditional grout to seal between tiles. Instead a flexible premium-grade polyurethane caulking. Allowing tiles to move and flex with the structure.
A. No. The IntegraStone tile system is designed for movement. Every 2ft there is a control joint. We use polyurethane caulking in between joints that allow for flexibility.
A. There are 8 standard colours available.
A. Yes. Normally IntegraStone can be installed and sealed in any temperature higher than 39 F (+4 C)
A. Trained and qualified installers must install IntegraStone in order to qualify for the lifetime warranty.
A. Yes. Those who have successfully tiled surfaces before will find installing IntegraStone to be very similar to traditional tile. More energy and larger equipment is required to install IntegraStone because the weight of large format tile is more than smaller and thinner tile. A tutorial video can be viewed on the IntegraStone website. In order to qualify for the lifetime warranty, the installer must be a trained IntegraStone installer.
A. Yes. Application of IntegraStone over spalled concrete requires the surface to be completely clean of debris and broken concrete.
A. A professional roofing contractor must install a minimum of a torch down roof membrane. Once the living space has been completely waterproofed IntegraStone can then be installed and sealed.
A. Start by pressure washing the concrete to make sure the glue can have a good bond to the concrete. If concrete is in need of patching use an exterior thin set adhesive to make up for the voids. Once the concrete surface is dry, clean and patched you can begin to lay the tile.
A. IntegraStone can be installed over existing floor coverings like vinyl, ceramic tile and wood. Using polyurethane adhesives to bond the tile right over the existing flooring.
A. Yes. Click on this link for a detailed drawing.
A. IntegraStone is sealed from the factory and should not require additional sealing. Over time, if the owner desires a glossier finish an acrylic sealer can be applied.
A. With the proper care, IntegraStone is designed to last over 50 years.
