Posted on 6th March 2022

You might be wondering whether porcelain paving is the right choice for your home improvement project. Its high durability and range of colours and effects available is just the beginning of why porcelain paving is perfect for your property.

The latest advancement in patio solutions, porcelain tiles boast an impressive number of benefits for homes and gardens.

We get asked a lot of the same questions about our porcelain flooring, so here are the answers to help you decide whether porcelain is right for you.

Is porcelain paving expensive?

Porcelain paving is considered a premium product compared to other paving options. However, while cost is a deciding factor, it is also important to consider the many benefits of porcelain beyond this.

There are less expensive options on the market when it comes to porcelain slabs but at Porcelain Paving Direct we offer only the highest quality porcelain at competitive prices.

Due to their composition, porcelain tiles are extremely durable and hard-wearing, so you can expect them to last for years to come, providing great value for money.

Are porcelain tiles suited to modern garden designs?

The manufacturing process of porcelain allows for a wide range of colours, effects, and finishes; this makes it possible to achieve almost an endless number of styles and designs for your garden and home.

At Porcelain Paving Direct, you will discover that the popular trend for light grey paving is reflected in many of our beautiful collections. As well as this, we cover more unique multicolour finishes and porcelain that replicates real wood and mixed concrete.

Modern garden patios also tend to have smooth, clean lines and minimal joints, which are features you can expect from our porcelain products.

Is porcelain flooring easy to keep clean?

Garden maintenance can often be tiring and unappealing, which is why porcelain is a great option. Porcelain paving is a low maintenance paving solution and one of the easiest types to keep clean.

Due to their manufacturing process, porcelain slabs absorb little to no water. This makes them resistant to stains and frost and also prevent moss and algae growth.

To ensure the newly-installed look of your patio remains maintained, a simple clean with hot soapy water is usually enough. Although, to naturally enhance the lifespan of your patio you should aim to keep loose debris, such as compost, leaves, and grass cuttings away.

Do porcelain slabs last a long time?

Made from refined clays and naturally occurring materials, porcelain paving is manufactured by being exposed to significant pressure and fired at extremely high temperatures in a kiln.

This process is known as vitrification and creates an extremely strong and hard-wearing material that is non-porous. Therefore, porcelain is a great option if you are wanting your paving to last for many years.
