ROSIE’S TEMPERATURE TEST FOR PATIO SURFACES IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT 

Every year it seems a weather person does the tried-and-true cook-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk trick. A couple of years ago, Rosie took that test a bit further. No, he didn’t fry up bacon on the driveway to go with the egg; but he did take the temperature of various surfaces around the Romero home.

The test took place at 2:00 p.m. when the outdoor temperature was 112 degrees in the direct sun (no shade). Rosie took the temperature with an infrared thermal imaging gun.

Temperature Heat Test Results:

Note: Normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees fahrenheit. The below results are also in fahrenheit 

  • Green lawn: 102 degrees
  • Gray troweled concrete: 128 degrees
  • Travertine 136 degrees
  • Flagstone, depending on the color: 144 to 152 degrees…the lighter the color, the cooler the temperature
  • Saltillo tile: 145 degrees
  • Concrete pavers: 146 degrees
  • Trex composite decking: 150-175 degrees, depending on the color
  • Natural redwood decking: 154 degrees
  • Native Arizona soil: 156 degrees
  • Slate: 163 degrees
  • Black asphalt street: 176 degrees

Hot dang!! That’s hot!
