Protect your deck or patio with a functional heat resistant grill pad.
My wife hasn’t noticed the burn hole yet. It’s pretty substantial. For the life of me I don’t understand why the deck didn’t go up in flames and take the house with it. Must be some sort of flame retardant in the wood. But a hunk of charcoal somehow jumped from my grill and tried to escape before I caught it. But not before it burned a serious hole.
My wife hasn’t noticed because I covered the burn with a Grill Pad. The Grill Pad is made of an exclusive material crafted from fiber cement making it heat- and weather-resistant, flexible and durable, and at 8 pounds it is heavy enough to stay anchored to the ground.
A little late to save the decking, but not too late for the future. This lightweight flexible fiber cement pad now protects my deck from runaway coals, spills, and grease dropping from the grease pan on my gas grill (have you emptied yours lately?).
