Why You Should Consider Porcelain Paving for Your Garden & Patio
Throughout recent years, porcelain paving has been rapidly growing in popularity for garden and patio use. If you’re unsure whether you should use porcelain paving, Venus Stone will make sure you’re in the right place.
Porcelain Paving Durability
Porcelain paving is an extremely strong and hard-wearing material made from refined clay and natural materials. As a paving slab, porcelain absorbs very little water during its lifespan, when exposed to harsh conditions (i.e. extremely heavy rainfall and freezing temperatures), the tile remains as good as new.
Throughout the manufacturing process of creating porcelain slabs, they are exposed to extremely high temperatures and once cooled, the tiles become incredibly strong, hard and dense.
Easy to Keep Clean
Porcelain Paving is one of the easiest tiles to maintain and keep clean, whilst other paving options can be easily affected by external elements such as rain, frost and moss. The manufacturing process involved in porcelain paving means they absorb little water — porcelain paving tiles are actually resistant to stains, heat, frost and, to a large extent, moss and mould!
If however your paving is beginning to show dirt, a simple scrub with hot soapy water or a power wash will do the trick, having your patio looking as good as it did when it was first installed!
The Safety of Porcelain Paving
Porcelain paving is a very smooth looking tile but you can be assured that due to the low absorption rate, the durable surface is slip resistant. All of our porcelain tiles have a minimum R11 slip rating, meaning they’re suitable and safe to use in outdoor areas that are susceptible to the wet weather!
The Contemporary and Modern Look of Porcelain
With the advancements of 3D textured surfaces and print technology, porcelain paving slabs provide a very modern look and feel to any garden and patio.
Alongside the modern aspect of porcelain paving, Venus Stone offers a range of designs and styles, allowing you to create the perfect look to suit your style preferences.
