Listed below are some of the most popular frequently asked questions that we get about VersaCourt Basketball Courts.
Like many construction projects, the costs to build a basketball court with VersaCourt court tile will vary depending on a number of elements including its size, excavation requirements, type of base and quantity and quality of its accessories. Realistically, it is impossible to estimate a cost without evaluating these in more detail, but you can learn more about each element that affects the Cost of a Backyard Basketball Court.
At VersaCourt, not only are we happy to work with our customers in whatever way works best for them, but our court preparation and packing process is designed to make installation as easy as possible. Once you have a solid, flat surface on which to place the court, the actual installation of the VersaCourt is relatively simple. Learn more about our installation process
Depending on the area of the country in which you live, we will most likely have a certified dealer or relationships with qualified installers or concrete companies that can help you. The centralized nature of our design, court preparation and packing process makes the court installation process very simple but our local dealers are still the ideal option for those customers looking for on-site design assistance and a turnkey solution. Contact Us to find a certified builder in your area.
We definitely recommend using a 4” thick concrete base with #4 rebar reinforcement for most basketball courts as this base option tends to provide the most permanent solution with the best playability. However, we do have customers that are very happy with courts placed on an asphalt base. We don’t recommend compacted stone as a base. Learn more about base/subsurface options.
Assuming you have a large enough driveway to accommodate the court, placing your VersaCourt on it is an option. Our outdoor tiles are extremely durable and can be driven on without being damaged.
We offer a number of standard basketball court kits that include half court and full court sizes as well as a number of smaller courts for areas with limited space. However, we can also start with your design specifications or the dimensions of your base or to create a court tailored to your exact needs. Most multi-sport courts are designed in this manner.
VersaCourt tile can be cleaned in a variety of ways. If it is an outdoor application, leaves, sticks, and trash can build up on the surface. A leaf blower can be used to remove most debris. If the tile surface is dusty or dirty then a power washer can be used – be sure to set it on a low-pressure setting and do not directly spray the painted lines. Over time dirt, leaves, rocks and other debris may accumulate under the tile. If this does occur to the point where the tile is full, undo the tiles in large sections and slide the tile out of the way to clean the subsurface.
While it is very infrequent that tiles get damaged, it is nice to know that most can be replaced in a matter of minutes. Simply insert a hook or screwdriver into a hole closest to the corner of the tile which does not have loops and pull up.
Courts which are smaller in size and see a lot of activity may be susceptible to shifting. This is generally more noticeable in basketball courts. The tiles tend to shift towards the goal which is caused by continuously running and stopping toward the goal.
