Porcelain paving may be relatively new to the market compared with some of the more traditional paving materials, but its popularity is on the rise – and it’s easy to see why.
Here are just seven reasons why you need porcelain paving from Caledonian Stone for your next landscaping project.
Porcelain is non-porous, so is not stained easily like stone and concrete slabs. If there is a spill, it can be mopped clean easily, and pressure washed with a gentle detergent as and when necessary. Stone manufacturers often recommend that natural pavers are sealed on an annual basis to keep them looking as good as new – the great thing about porcelain pavers is that there is no sealing required.
A huge plus for the UK market! Thanks to its non-porous nature, porcelain slabs are unlikely to suffer at the hands of British weather. As well as being frost-resistant, porcelain paving doesn’t attract moss and mould – so there’s less slip risk – and it is a low-maintenance paving option for your garden designs.
If you choose a particular colour of paving, you can be confident it will be the same colour in 10 years’ time, thanks to porcelain’s ability to resist sun fading. Not only does this ensure that your design retains its intended look, but your clients will continue to be pleased with their paving for years to come.
Porcelain paving has a non-slip surface. This makes it suitable for use in all areas of landscape design. You’ll discover paving that looks great and is functional for patios and balconies, around swimming pools, on steps – and it’s even tough enough for driveways.
For true flexibility, you should choose porcelain paving. Because it is a man-made product, porcelain paving can be made in any number of sizes. Bigger slabs are perfect for larger areas where laying average-sized pavers would be time-consuming and labour intensive.
For a truly professional finish, Caledonian Stone now offers bullnose slabs. Use them on step edges to give a truly polished finished result.
Because porcelain paving is a man-made product, you can choose how it looks – we even have a range of porcelain paving that resembles wood! The perfect way to achieve a wood look with low/no maintenance.
