Why Porcelain Should Be Your Best Paving Choice in Outdoor Project

Mar 25, 2023

When your concerns are paving for outdoor living spaces like patios, terraces, or swimming pool decks, I would like to introduce you to an excellent outdoor paver. It is porcelain, chameleons in mimicking different natural paving materials, including natural stones, wood, and anything belonging to that category.

I have solid, valid, and proven reasons to say, “why porcelain should be your best paving choice in outdoor projects” out of various options available in the present market.

Let’s explore some here.

Porcelain An Aesthetically Appealing Product in Dimension Stone Industry

Porcelain is an engineered paving and walling product. You can get porcelain tiles with any desired color, texture, size, shape, and dimension, unlike natural stones.

Porcelain allows you to mimic natural stones & woods with grains, veins, fissures, and patterns. You can simulate various wooden & natural rock effects, including colors, styles, and surface finishes on the porcelain tiles or slabs.

Thus, porcelain lets you impress your home’s visitors with aesthetically appealing pavers and wall tiles by creating the desired aura in your indoor and outdoor spaces.

Porcelain A Cost-effective Product in the Construction Industry

Porcelain tile is an upgraded version of ceramic tiles from a technical point of view. Porcelain manufacturing demands natural clays and minerals as core resources. We know well that clay is abundant in nature and ubiquitous in availability across the planet. Moreover, its Kiln-fire process needs minimum and one-time investment.

These factors go in favor of porcelain tile production. It makes porcelain a cost-efficient and cheaper product in the construction industry compared to natural stones and natural woods, which are purely nature-originated but scarce resources.

Suppose you intend remodeling of your backyard patio on a budget. In that case, the porcelain pavers can cost you somewhere in a range of $7 to $9 per square foot. Natural stones may cost you twice or thrice with the same effects and impacts.

Porcelain An Unlimited Supply of Green Products

As stated earlier, porcelain is made of Kiln-fired clay, and clay is a natural resource with unlimited supply across the world. Too high temperatures during the Kiln-fire process only alter a few properties when translated into the porcelain or ceramic tile products. Degradation of clay is natural and quick compared to unnatural synthetic plastics or resin products.

So, people jotted down in Green Piece’s movements have never opposed the ceramic or porcelain industry. They know how porcelain is an environment-friendly product.

Porcelain A Great Usable & Reusable Product

If I say porcelain is an incredibly usable and reusable product, you may not be surprised. 

Porcelain Pavers Are Versatile

The origin of porcelain is in the ceramic industry. We are accustomed to China products used in our day-to-day life like china crockery and china toys. Tubs and sinks in your bath or toilets are also made of kiln-fired products. It means porcelain is a versatile product. Similarly, we can use porcelain tiles & slabs as pavers on flooring projects and walls for decorative tiling. 

Porcelain Pavers Are Recyclable 

Yes, porcelain pavers are not dumping in wastage-graves. Instead of it, broken pieces of porcelain pavers are an excellent source for base preparation for roads, paths, driveways, wall foundations, and even next paving in your exterior landscape.

Porcelain Pavers Are Durable & Competent to Natural Stone Pavers

Porcelain Pavers Are Lightweight Yet Sturdy Products

Porcelain is a kiln-fired compact product with physical & chemical properties equal to natural stones. It means you will get the strength of natural stones with reduced weight. You can save some on shipping, the overall load on building or ground, and, most importantly, labor to carry during storage and installation.

Slip-free Porcelain Pavers 

Porcelain tiles are sturdy enough to receive various surface finishes and polish. So, you can make tile surfaces coarse to render it an anti-skid textured tile. It may save you from slipping in different wet conditions while walking on exterior porcelain pavers.

Waterproof Porcelain Pavers 

Porcelain pavers are almost impervious to liquids, including water, thanks to its low porosity. The low water absorption rate of porcelain indicates it as a waterproof paving solution for outside wet prone areas like patios and swimming pool decks.

Weatherproof Porcelain Pavers 

We know about the low water absorption rate of porcelain that gives porcelain pavers the water-resistant property. Similarly, porcelain pavers can withstand the freeze-thaw cycle easily. Moreover, porcelain itself is getting extreme heat of nearly thousand-degree Celsius temperature during the kiln process. So, it is entirely heat resistant during hot days.  

Fireproof Porcelain Pavers 

Porcelain is made of clay and natural minerals, not from any synthetic or fire-catching stuff. It makes porcelain pavers fireproof and lets you use anywhere in the interior or exterior designs, including kitchens.

Porcelain Pavers Have Ardent Product Lifecycle 

In comparison to woods and concrete-based flooring solutions, porcelain pavers offer extreme ease right from shipping to installation, maintenance, and restoration like lifecycle stages.

Easy to Install Porcelain Pavers 

Thanks to the lightweight paving solution, porcelain pavers are easy to carry. You can get pre-cut tile kits for DIY paving projects. Diamond or wet cutters can cut porcelain slabs and tiles in desired shapes and sizes during installation.

Easy to Clean Porcelain Pavers 

  • Porcelain pavers are readily accepting the polish and finish to make its surfaces smooth to clean. 
  • The low water absorption property of porcelain prohibits deep staining. Various spills and dirt cannot leave any permanent damage on the surfaces or ruin the appearance. 
  • Simple dry cloth cleaning or washing with plain water proves enough to remove stains. 
  • Suppose spills have left for a longer duration on the porcelain surface. In that case, the application of washing detergent or mild vinegar is proving useful in stain removal.

Easy to Maintain Porcelain Pavers 

  • Porcelain pavers are a less porous and manufactured product. Unlike natural stones, porcelain tiles need less frequent sealing or coating to keep look-n-feel intact. 
  • You can get a perfect matching piece when you need to replace a porcelain paver, even with a custom order.
  • Light-weighted porcelain pavers are quick to replace and cheap on other maintenance requirements.

Easy to Restore Porcelain Pavers 

  • You can replace the entire set of porcelain pavers with the latest model, style, and design.
  • You can replace wooden or natural stone floors with porcelain pavers mimicking the same look and style. 

Porcelain Can Simulate Siliceous Stones

We know siliceous stones, which have silica/quartz as dominant components, are high in hardness and durability among various natural rocks.

Our advanced porcelain manufacturing technologies have made it possible to mimic various siliceous stones in each aspect of the physical & chemical properties.

Quartzite Porcelain

Granite Porcelain

Natural granite rocks have a distinct look due to the deposition of quartz crystals. Our granite porcelain pavers simulate all beautifully. 

According to a customer survey by Tile Mountain in the UK, there are four aspects for those customers who have selected porcelain granite tiles for their outdoor paving needs.

  • Design choice
  • Ease of installation
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Value of money invested

Sandstone Porcelain

In nature, sandstone rocks are available in a spectrum of colors, patterns, and styles. Moreover, the use of sandstone is higher than other pavers in the construction industry. So, our sandstone porcelain inventory is enormous in size and wide in varieties. Cappuccino beige is simulating the beige tone of natural sandstone precisely.

Three factors favor sandstone porcelain pavers against natural sandstone pavers, and those are:

  • Ease of installation
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Versatility 

Porcelain Can Simulate Calcareous Stones

Like siliceous stones, we are simulating different genres of calcareous stones too.

Limestone Porcelain

Limestone is found plenty in nature and used since ancient eras in different parts of the world. Considering the demands of various limestone varieties, we have a limestone porcelain stock to meet current needs. 

Limestone simulating porcelain pavers are getting an edge over natural stone limestone products in four merits.

Travertine Porcelain

Due to travertine’s rare availability, the demand for porcelain travertine is tremendous. We have copied most of the natural travertine stone appearance in our travertine porcelain products.

Slate Porcelain

Slat has unique patterns and look. Our slate porcelain simulates all ditto. Moreover, you may not have slate cleavage like phenomena in our slate porcelain pavers.
