Pedestal Placement - At Curved and Angled Walls


With any elevated deck installation using a pedestal system, the following basic requirements must be met.

  • Decks must not exceed the load capacity of the pedestals.
  • The substrate should slope slightly to give positive drainage.
  • Roof decks must comply with all local building codes including fire regulations and wind uplift.
  • Any area not bounded by a parapet or wall must be ‘boxed-in’ so the pavers cannot move.
  • Any gaps around the perimeter must not exceed 1/8”.
The number of pedestals you’ll require for your project depends on the following:

  • The total number of tiles or pavers used.
  • The dimensions of the tiles or pavers.
  • The weight of the tiles or pavers – larger or heavier pavers may require an additional central pedestal per paver.
  • The shape of the area to be covered – the more irregular it is shaped, the more pedestals you’re likely to need.
  • The anticipated loading on the deck.
  • The amount of pedestrian traffic anticipated (commercial applications).
  • The finished height of the deck.
As a guide, the following formula can be used if the area is a simple rectangle or square:

  • Count the number of pavers or tiles along the width and the depth and add one to each of these numbers.
  • Multiply these numbers together to give the minimum number of pedestals required.
