Does Porcelain Paving Get Hot In The Sun?

Posted on 2nd August 2022

Summer is very much here and now is the time when more and more homeowners are thinking about the garden improvements that they’ve been putting off all winter long. At Porcelain Paving Direct, we have the perfect products to help you get started.

Over the last few years, for many of us gardens have become an increasingly important part of the home. Tidy, low maintenance and practical gardens are at the top of the wish list for many homeowners as well as those looking to buy their first home or relocate.

A garden provides a beautiful area to relax in the sunshine with a glass of wine, host BBQ’s and parties for guests, and let the little ones play outside with their friends.

Porcelain continues to grow in popularity on the paving market for garden and patio redesigns and offers countless advantages compared to natural stone products.

One common question about porcelain paving is whether or not it becomes hot underfoot in the summer months. So, if you plan on using porcelain as part of your summer garden redesign, let us give you the answer you are searching for.

Why people are choosing porcelain paving

It’s no secret that homeowners love porcelain paving and it’s clear to see why due to the ever-growing list of benefits.

Firstly, porcelain is extremely low maintenance, offers considerable durability and is slip, scratch and stain resistant. It also offers the same stunning aesthetic as you would get from any type of natural stone paving.

Another advantage of choosing porcelain paving as opposed to natural stone is that it is fade resistant. This means that the porcelain you install now will maintain its colours and look amazing for years to come.

You might be wondering how porcelain is fade resistant and this is because it is cooked to extremely high temperatures during the manufacturing process. It is cooked at around 1,200°C in order for the pigments to be locked in and this is what prevents the colour from fading when exposed to direct sunlight and heat.

How porcelain paving is weather resistant

During the manufacturing process of porcelain, a combination of special elements are used, which results in the final product being resistant to harsh weather and UV.

This is great news for homeowners wishing to install porcelain paving in their gardens because it means it will not get hot and is safe to walk on underfoot. This is especially beneficial if you have young children or pets using the outdoor space.
