Can this mat be used on sealed travertine pavers without any fading or discoloration.

Answer

Depends on how long they keep the mat down over it. Overnight most likely no change, kept on it for a few days, yes the milky look will begin to take hold.

Yes, I had the mat under Weber grill on new Azek deck for about a year. When we pulled the Matt up to clean deck this spring we found white spots under where edge of mat was and have been unable to wash off.

Hello, We have our pad on a paver patio outside. We have not had a problem with any moisture being trapped. There are no stains under the pad. We have had it for over a year and it has been great!

From their website: The "Original" Grill Pad® is naturally environmentally heat and weather resistant. You should allow a minimum clearance of twenty-four inches between the heating appliance and The "Original" Grill Pad™ on your deck or patio surface!

Does it hold moisture under the protector???

Answer

If placed on dry deck or patio, the Grill Pad does not trap moisture. The product is designed to lay flat and by its weight will fit flat to your surface.

I really wanted to like this product and I gave it my all with the purchase of 3 of them. I purchased three of these in the granite gray. Two were for me - One was for my Weber and the other was for my Traeger. The 3rd was a new house warming gift. The one I gifted turned out to be the best out of all three. The two for me went back to Home Depot. Home Depot has always been great with returns (not their fault either) however this company shouldn't be putting out such a shoddy product. It's just plain crappy quality control and inconsistent workmanship. It's noted in several articles I have read. Cracks, bubbly surfaces and cracked edges. The composite concrete material on the bottom is also cracked and crumbling away. I experienced that on the two that I bought for myself. It's pretty crappy and inconsistent quality directly from the factory. The shipping packaging arrived in good conditon on all three so it's hard to blame the freight guy/gal on this one. I have attached several pics. I would say buyer beware and look at other options. Not sure what I'm getting next but NEVER another "Original Grill Pad" product. Article: https://firecookeat.com/best-grill-mat-for-your-deck-or-patio/ "The Original Grill Pad - Because of its 8-pound weight pressed down on your flooring, you can be sure that it will not slip away under your grill while you’re cooking. Its dimensions is 30” x 42”, which is relatively big enough to accommodate and protect a large area under your grill. However, many customers complained of brittle ends which appeared to be caused during shipping. Others received a defective batch of the grill pads, like those that have cracks and “bubbly” surface, not to mention that it could be too fragile to handle because of its thick and hard surface. Hopefully this issue has been fixed, but we don't know for sure that it has." Trust me, it hasn't been fixed! Good luck on your bbq grill pad quest. I might try a Montana Grilling Mat next as it gets good reviews and or and or a GrillTex which Home Depot also sells. Good luck in your bbq patio mat quest! Cheers!

This mat looks great on our deck, it fits under our Weber Spirit 300. It's top notch. The store didn't carry the color or size so I ordered online and it was delivered in a few days. Very happy with the color.

As you can see by my pic, I'm using two pads 42' x 30". Their buried by tiles but that's only suspenders for the belt. I'm always putting my hot electric fire starter, lava stones and grates under the grill so to be extra careful, on this composite deck, I've got the tiles down. Pads are sturdy and should last many years. I web ordered the black pads to match the color of my deck. When I was in my local store I saw brown pads there for a few $ less than the web site price.

I bought this product to protect my new deck from the drippings from the grill so it wouldn't get stained. It protected the deck from the drippings but the pad its self stained the deck worse then the drippings would have. even power washing would not remove the stain. nice huh. and this is after one month of being on the deck

I intend to use this as a mat for a generator in a muddy environment and it will do that job just fine. If I was using this for any other purpose I’d be pretty angry. All the 1 star reviews are 100% accurate. This thing is cracked, dry and crumbling. Looks like absolute crap. Not worth $2.
