What To Know Before Buying Porcelain Paving

Posted on 28th October 2022

If you don’t know much about porcelain paving, let us tell you a bit more. A still fairly new and revolutionary product on the paving market, it boasts many structural advantages and benefits for your property; should you choose to install it inside or outside the home.

Paving for any home is an investment but we promise it is one that is worthwhile. Porcelain paving is manufactured and designed with longevity in mind, to avoid you having to redo your garden landscaping in a few years’ time.

All of our porcelain paving products are of the highest quality and deliver the very best results for a range of applications. Use our patio slabs to renovate patios, pathways, balconies, swimming pool surrounds, kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories and so much more.

Here’s what you should know before buying porcelain paving.

It is highly durable

During manufacturing, porcelain paving undergoes a vitrification process where a mixture of clays, sands and other natural materials is pressed and heated at high temperatures and then cooled. This results in the mixture becoming hard and extremely robust.

Therefore, this makes for resistance against general wear and tear as well as accidents that can occur as a result of everyday use. You needn’t worry about dents, chips, cracks or scratches with porcelain paving.

It is slip resistant

The textured surface of porcelain paving slabs makes them resistant to slipping. All of our patio tiles are manufactured with a minimum UK standard R11 anti-slip finish to help prevent accidental slips, trips and falls in wet or frosty conditions.

It is colour fast

Even when exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, the colour of the porcelain paving tiles will remain perfectly intact. Even dark colours such as black and grey will uphold their original look with no flaws in sight.

It is low maintenance

If you aren’t one for gardening and wish to create an outdoor aesthetic that is easy to maintain yet still looks good, porcelain paving slabs are the one.

Porcelain paving only requires some occasional sweeping to get rid of loose leaves and other accumulated debris. For more stubborn marks, simply fill a bucket with warm soapy water and use a damp cloth to wipe away any unwanted substances.

Beyond that, your porcelain paving will remain looking beautiful pretty much all on its own!

It is resistant to many environmental factors

As well as being resistant to dents, chips, cracks, scratches and fading; porcelain slabs can also resist frost, algae, moss, acid and alkali.
