What Is Porcelain Paving?

Posted on 9th September 2022

In recent years, porcelain paving has become one of the most stunning flooring solutions for gardens and patio areas, as well as home interiors.

At Porcelain Paving Direct, we have a huge selection of porcelain patio slabs to complement whatever kind of design or aesthetic you wish to create.

As you are browsing our striking collection of porcelain paving, we invite you to order free samples to allow you to get a proper look and feel of our porcelain products. You will find that each porcelain slab has a premium feel, which is what adds luxury to your paved area.

The great thing about porcelain is that any look can be achieved with modern inkjet printing technology. Natural materials such as wood, slate, marble, limestone and sandstone can all be replicated to give an authentic look without the maintenance.

Porcelain garden slabs offer a truly authentic look and feel that normally you only achieve with natural stone, but with a practical edge that is needed in outdoor paving.

The Key Benefits of Porcelain Paving:

Low maintenance - You will be happy to know that porcelain paving slabs are virtually maintenance-free. Simply sweep with a brush to get rid of accumulated dirt or wipe over with a damp cloth to eradicate more stubborn dirt.

Hard-wearing - The vitrification process our porcelain products go through makes each porcelain slab solid and long-lasting. Drastic changes in the weather won’t affect the quality or look of your porcelain paving.

Slip-resistant - With a minimum R11 slip rating, porcelain paving tiles are designed to have a slightly textured surface to combat slips and falls.

Stain, scratch, mould, and frost-resistant - Besides being resistant to weather changes, porcelain paving is also durable in many other ways.

Range of colours and effects available - Porcelain inkjet printing technology has widened the possibilities for porcelain paving. Almost any result or colour is achievable.

Acid and alkali resistant - Porcelain paving can withstand fertiliser and lawn treatments.

Colour maintaining - The manufacturing and processing of porcelain mean that even the darkest colours will not lose their intensity over time.

Algae and moss resistant - This is particularly important for patios in the shade or north facing.

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.
