The Benefits Of Porcelain Paving

on 24th Oct 2018 Comments Off on The Benefits Of Porcelain Paving

If you’re looking for a clean, contemporary feel to your new garden scheme then look no further than porcelain paving.  Porcelain paving is a relatively new addition to materials that are suitable for garden paving, drives and patio.

Man made from natural materials this type of paving resembles large tiles and provides a highly consistent colour, texture and size between slabs. Due to this consistency, the paving can be laid with very thin joints between the slabs to create a crisp contemporary look.

This type of paving is growing in popularity particularly for homes who want a harmonious blend between inside and out.  To achieve this consistency across flooring and paving, a wide rage of ultra-modern slabs are available in a variety of colours and finishes that includes rustic wood or natural stone-effect. You can even get tiles with added sparkle!

Porcelain paving is made by baking a mixture of clay, sand and other minerals at high temperatures to create an extremely durable, non-porous material.  This makes it very resilient to water, stains, mould, moss and mildew, and liquids such as oils and chemicals.

It’s exceptionally hard-wearing, and also scratch resistant, making it a perfect choice for areas of high footfall, patios and outdoor kitchen areas, like the one we recently installed on a garden project in Wokingham.
