Porcelain paving is the new landscaping product on the market to rejuvenate your patio or garden. If you have never heard of it before, at Stone & Surfaces Direct we’re here to share with you what makes it such a fantastic choice.
In particular, our pebble grey porcelain tiles are a beautiful option for creating patio entertainment areas, pathways, stairways, verandas and balconies. With all the advantages of natural stone but without the maintenance, it’s clear to see why porcelain is so popular.
The striking thing about porcelain paving is that it achieves an authentic look and feel of natural stone but is actually a man made material.
Suitable for interiors as well as exteriors, pebble grey porcelain tiles display a light grey colour and are vitrified with full-body colour. This means that they are manufactured with extreme durability and a low water absorption ratio.
Generally speaking, porcelain paving has an absorption ratio of under 0.05%. Therefore, you needn’t worry about water penetrating the surface, expanding in freezing temperatures and causing cracking to the tiles.
The hard wearing composition makes the slabs resistant to stains, including stubborn liquids such as grease and red wine. They also have the ability to resist acids and alkali chemicals, including fertiliser and lawn treatments.
Pebble grey porcelain tiles give a luxurious, modern appearance in any garden or home as well as a clean finish because of the light grey colour. They are colour fast too, so they will maintain their true colour even when exposed to direct sunlight for long periods.
