Why Install Porcelain Paving?

Why Install Porcelain Paving?

Porcelain is a new and modern alternative to natural stone paving, which can be used both inside and outside the home if you’d like a robust, hard-wearing surface that’s beautiful too.

Many people associate porcelain with china or kitchenware, and are often under the impression that it’s quite fragile. However, porcelain paving is actually incredibly durable – it doesn’t need to be sealed to prevent stains and is algae and mould resistant. This means that you’ll have a consistent and clear surface for years to come, with minimal maintenance required.

What’s more, it’s even weather-proof and easy to clean. The finish should last longer than natural stone and even concrete, which is a surprise to many of our customers. The surface is very comfortable to walk on, which means that you can have the same flooring in your kitchen and then out through the sliding doors and onto your garden patio. If you have an underfloor heating system, you’ll also be pleased to know that porcelain is one of the recommended flooring types for heat conductivity, so that you are making the most of your system without unnecessarily wasting energy.

We stock a range of Pavestone porcelain paving in numerous colours, including Dolomite Grey, Dolomite Dust, and Dolomite Moon. The entire range has been inspired by the colours and surface textures of natural stone, so you have the same look and feel in a material that stays looking fresh and clean with no fading or staining.

We highly recommend this new range of paving to anybody who wants a low-maintenance, beautiful stone for use indoors or out. You can buy online or come into our branch to see the product before you buy. If you need large quantities, you also don’t need to worry about colour variations between packs – as a manmade substance, each pack is the exact same colour as the rest. Ideal if you have a larger space to cover or you just prefer a consistent finish.
