What are the advantages of porcelain Pavers?
Porcelain is an extremely durable and robust man-made product that has been around for a long time and used for lots of other applications as well as paving.
Minimal water absorption
Porcelain pavers are exceptionally resistant to water ingress. This makes them an ideal external surface for many reasons as follows.
Because of this low water absorption rate and minimum porous qualities that porcelain obtains, it makes them frost proof, variable temperature resistant, which in turn avoids splitting, cracking, warping and bending, unlike natural products like timber or stone materials.
When porcelain slabs and pavers are produced, they are baked to a very high temperature which turns them into a dense glass-like material. When the tiles have cooled down they become extremely hard and need to be cut using diamond blades. This heating process is named verification and these vitrified porcelain tiles are basically the toughest tiles and pavers that are on the market today.
Low maintenance paving
Unlike timber decking and natural stone products that will need a constant regular maintenance program to keep them in good condition to avoid deterioration, with ongoing methods like sealing, staining and waxing. Porcelain paving and tiles can be easily cleaned by brushing and mopping with a light detergent or pressure washing occasionally. If you are a busy person or family this can be a time-saving feature and an ideal product for hardscaping your garden area.
Porcelain will not colour fade, stain or bleach when exposed for long periods in the sun and other weathering elements. The vibrant colouring of your chosen tiles will always stay the same for you to enjoy year after year.
As porcelain is a man-made manufactured product, a slight texture can be introduced to the surface of the tile during the production process. This can guarantee your paving will be ant-slip in design and safety.
Moss - Algae - lichen - Mould Resistant surface
Because porcelain is a non-porous material in nature, it makes it difficult for these organic growths to take hold on the surface. This is another reason porcelain makes an excellent non-slip external surface worth considering for installation if safety is one of your main concerns,
Design and Styles
With advanced print technology and 3D texture surfaces, it can be difficult to distinguish porcelain surfaces from the real products. For instance, timber decking and natural stone porcelain paving and tiles look exactly like their counterparts but come with the added qualities of being more hardwearing and durable, plus all the other great benefits that I have already mentioned already.
How much is porcelain paving?
Although this kind of paving can be a little more of an expensive outlay from the beginning as opposed to concrete slabs, Indian sandstone, block paving and timber decking, but i think you will agree the overall benefits of porcelain paving can warrant the price. Things like lower maintenance, extended lifespan and the many other factors that i have mentioned in the sections above. I will think you will agree that porcelain paving is an attractive option for your patio or landscaping needs.
This type of paving is more difficult to install than your standard concrete or sandstone slabs. Porcelain slabs are more like tiles than standard paving. So the installation is a more delicate and slower process, and unlike concrete paving, cutting porcelain needs to be done with specialist diamond blades.
