With any pedestal supported deck installation, the following requirements must be met.
The first step in constructing a pedestal-supported deck is to estimate both the number of pavers and pedestals required. To simplify this task, we have developed an online Pedestal Estimator which can quickly calculate both the number of pavers and pedestals of each size to cover a defined area. You can get immediate access to our Pedestal Estimator here. Or if you prefer, just send us the details of your project including all measurements, heights around the perimeter, slopes, drainage points, etc. and we can provide the estimate for you with a print-out showing the recommended laying configuration.
The basic procedure for constructing an elevated deck using adjustable height pedestals is shown in the video of our porcelain paver pedestal system above.
In one of the initial steps, the video shows the base of pedestals installed around the perimeter being cut. Note that this is typically only required where the pedestal heads need to be as close to the wall as possible e.g.
