What BuildDirect Customers Are Saying

Verified Purchased
I ordered a few samples from build direct as we were trying to find the perfect tile for our kitchen/ laundry room area. Tiles just were delivered and they're beautiful and well worth the price, I went to multiple places and nobody could beat the price and their tiles were the same quality. We're very excited for them to go down this week!

Outdoor Tile Options for Your Deck Or Patio

Outdoor tiles come in many shapes and forms. Not only are they available in virtually any color, pattern, or material, but they are all strong enough to last in outdoor environments. Here is an overview of the top outdoor tile types to help you select the best material for your patio or deck:

Natural Stone Tiles

Natural stone is the umbrella term for tiles made from granite, slate, limestone, and travertine. Tiles made from these materials are popular because they work seamlessly in an outdoor environment. However, you’ll pay a bit more for their head-turning appearance.


Granite tiles are the hardest natural stone tiles, so you’ll find them very durable and resilient to the elements. It is one of the best outdoor tile options if you are looking for natural stone. Granite tiles are also available in a range of colors, from striking white to moody black.


Marble needs to be sealed to withstand the weather and foot traffic as it is slightly less hard and more porous. Many homeowners love the elegant look that the unique, veined finish offers. Marble is available in a variety of interesting colors.


Slate isn’t as hard as marble and granite, but it is tough enough for any outdoor area. The colors and textures of slate tiles vary, thereby creating real visual interest.


Limestone is a softer, more porous stone, so you’ll need to seal these tiles to protect them from stains and weather damage. It also shows wear easily, so they’re not recommended for high traffic areas. They’re also prone to cracking during cold winters.


The texture and composition of travertine is similar to regular limestone, but it is more brittle and softer as it is made up of mostly calcite. Travertine tiles also require sealing before it can be used.

Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain tiles are a great choice for your deck or patio area. These clay-based tiles are non-porous, fade-resistant, and very durable. As they’re baked in fiery hot kilns, porcelain tiles won’t crack in weather extremes like stone tiles can. That makes them a smart choice for homes in cities with very hot summers and icy winters.

Wood Tiles

Among outdoor tile options, wood tiles are very affordable because of their ready availability. They also come in more colors than you might expect. From creamy pale woods to dramatic darker woods, wood tiles can create a range of looks for less. Some wood tiles even have elevated PVC platforms for better drainage.
