Is Porcelain Paving Winterproof?

Posted on 15th June 2022

Porcelain paving boasts many benefits for summertime, including colour fastness and fade resistance even in direct sunlight. However, porcelain paving slabs also have many advantages in the winter months. So, what are they?

Winter can bring many challenges when it comes to maintaining a garden but because of the robust composition and durable qualities, porcelain paving is the perfect winterproof surface for your outdoor space.


Just one of the many great things about porcelain paving is that it is non-porous and highly resistant to sub-zero temperatures. This makes the tiles suitable for a wide range of purpose-built surfaces, such as driveways, swimming pool surrounds, and hard landscaping.

All of our outdoor porcelain paving slabs at Porcelain Paving Direct are manufactured to offer many first-proof qualities to ensure your safety when enjoying time outside in the wintertime.

With extremely low porosity levels, porcelain paving retains little to no moisture which reduces the risk of ice in colder months and makes for more reliable performance overall.

Our porcelain tiles don’t require any sealing during installation either and are naturally resistant to cracking.


Natural stone is highly susceptible to frost and ice, which can cause a number of problems and dangers in gardens, particularly for children and the elderly.

Our high-quality porcelain paving slabs are all manufactured with an R11 anti-slip finish to combat the risk of slips, trips, and falls.

Grip factor

During the manufacturing process, our porcelain paving is manufactured with a slightly textured surface. This helps provide maximum grip when moving around the garden. In addition, the anti-slip rating demonstrates the traction of the tiles and firmness underfoot.

If we haven’t yet convinced you that porcelain paving is the right investment for you and your home improvement project, get in touch with us and we will be happy to help with any queries you may have.

With valuable experience, we are able to help you achieve the perfect patio, garden, or home interior with our products.
