We have a huge deck that is partially covered by roofs that we have been repainting or staining every couple of years...and are tired of it...could it be covered by outdoor marine carpet ?

    Yes it can be covered. There are also outdoor carpeting tiles that make it a little easier if you are DIYing it.

      Great idea with the tiles as we have so many angles and steps in the deck...would make it much easier than cutting a huge piece of carpet...Thank you!

    We had indoor/outdoor carpeting on our wood deck and found it was holding the rain water and the boards started to rot...maybe outdoor marine carpeting would be better.

      That is good advice...we have about 1/2 inch spacing between boards so am thinking the water would drain through but will research it... Thank you...

    You're welcome! I purchased some step tiles from these people...

    They are simply beautiful and easy to install. They offer outdoor tiles as well (I'm looking at some for my mom's patio).

    Dee, I am so excited. Thank you for your information will check it out and hopefully get a great fun project started...I am 75 years old so simplicity is the name of my game...

    Rubber tiles might be the answer. They are usually fade resistant, won't rot, are water resistant, pretty much maintenance free and snap together for easy installation.
