FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • GENERAL
  • APPALACHIAN COLLECTION
  • RAINIER COLLECTION
  • SHIPPING
01 What is Tanzite?

Tanzite is made from natural stone/sand that is vitrified through extreme heat and pressure to create a highly controlled material that is most similar to porcelain. Unlike most porcelain, there are several measures taken throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that is ideal for use outdoors. So much so that we do not recommend using Tanzite products indoors.

02 What is the difference between the Appalachian Collection to the Rainier Collection?

The biggest difference between our Rainier Collection (original system) vs our Appalachian Collection (new system) is that the Rainier Collection is a free-floating waterproof system that is installed over a subfloor, whereas the Appalachian Collection is a non-waterproof system that is installed like composite decking with hidden fasteners.

03 What kind of stone is Tanzite?

The Tanzite stones were man-made stone. The stone is basically made the same way mother nature would, with an incredible amount of heat and pressure that literally melts it into a perfect stone, Similar to how man-made diamonds are made.

04 Do the stones heat up in the sun?

As you know, everything in the Summer gets hot eventually. Tanzite though, heats up significantly slower than Composite decking and ultimately never reaches the same temperature as similar colored composites. However, the darker the color, the more heat it will absorb just like a wood deck. Therefore, if this is a major concern, then the lighter colors will be the best option. You can also order samples of actual Tanzite stone pieces in each color, so you can test them out before you make your final decision!

05 What is its warranty?

Tanzite STONEDECKS are made of natural stone, and what can you really do to stone, which is why it's easy for us to include a limited lifetime warranty.

06 What is Tanzite's Return Policy?

Tanzite Return Policy.

You can return any* Tanzite product, for any reason whatsoever, within three months of receiving your order. Any returns need to be in their original bundle/bag/carton and in good sellable condition. All returned products are subject to a 15% restocking fee. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer.


*Please note that EPDM membrane is not refundable as it is specifically cut for your project.


Damaged Product.

Every Tanzite Stonedecks order is insured with shipping insurance! To take advantage of this, please take a photo of your shipment when it arrives, then inspect it and take additional photos of any damage you find, then notify us within 48 hours. See the full policy on our website at Tanzite.com/returns

Tanzite is an extremely strong decking product, once it's on the deck. It can be damaged during shipping though, and arrive with a chip or have slight damage on the edge. While we do our best to minimize it, minor damage happens in about 1 of every 30-35 boards. Since these boards can still be used for cut pieces, or hidden areas, there is minimal waste created by the damage. If you are unable to make use of the damaged piece, let us know and we'll refund you for the cost of the damaged piece.


Extra Product

Please ensure that you are ordering enough extra product to account for any waste, changes in the deck plan, or any slight mismeasurements. Tanzite pieces aren't light or small, so shipping even just a few extra boards typically costs more than the boards themselves costs, plus it will add delays to your project while you wait for them to arrive. If you do need additional pieces, they can be ordered at Tanzite.com/shop-tanzite. Note that Tanzite does not cover the shipping costs if you need extra pieces.

See the full Return Policy below.

01 How does it install?

04 How to order samples?

You can order samples here. The samples are cut from actual pieces of the final product, so the samples are the same material, size, texture, etc. as the planks you'll get for your deck!

05 What is the pricing of the Appalachian Collection per square foot?

The cost of the Appalachian Collection is almost always right around $10.00/sqft (USD). This includes edge pieces, groove pieces, and clips. Appalachian Collection prices change very little, if at all, from one deck size/layout to the next.

01How does it install?

The foam underlay is already attached to each tile. This means the Tile is insulated from the floor, keeping the floor warmer and softer feeling than a traditional tile. It also allows installation over uneven surfaces, or surfaces that flex.

EPDM rubber gaskets connect the pieces securely together so they interlock, yet remain flexible. This replaces the grout and makes installation easy for any DIY'er.

It also makes the "grout" easy to clean, and makes the tile installation removable, if needed. The flexible connection accepts movement, allowing placement over cracked concrete, flexible floors and outdoors where ice can move the tiles.

Tanzite Rainier Collection weighs 9.1lbs per square foot.
