Here’s what you need to know about porcelain paving if you’re considering it for your home, or trying to find the perfect option for your patio or driveway:
Despite preconceptions, porcelain is actually one of the strongest types of garden paving available. A state-of-the-art manufacturing process results in porcelain being incredibly strong and capable of withstanding high levels of foot traffic as well as heavy loads. Porcelain is also very durable and can resist all weather conditions. Consequently, porcelain is ideal for patios and paths as well as new driveways in Horsham.
If you’re planning a driveway and strength is a key concern, but you want a more traditional look, you should also think about resin bond driveways.
Our landscaping company recommends porcelain to anyone looking for garden paving that is easy to maintain. Porcelain is non-porous, meaning it will absorb little to no moisture, preventing algae and mould as well as the risk of water freezing inside the tiles. This minimises the risk of cracking in the winter and creates a low maintenance surface.
Another low maintenance aspect that makes porcelain a preferred choice over other options, such as block paving or natural stone, is its resistance to staining. Homeowners in Horsham don’t need to worry about spilling anything on porcelain because you can simply wipe the surface clean without the risk of stains.
Porcelain offers a non-slip surface that adds a level of safety to your garden paving even in wet conditions. Furthermore, because porcelain is frost resistant, it maintains its non-slip properties even in harsh winter conditions. As such, porcelain is suitable for patios, paths and new driveways and is an ideal option for homes with children or other persons vulnerable to slipping.
If safety is a main concern, you may also want to consider resin bond driveways, which also offer excellent anti-slip qualities.
Porcelain comes in a wide range of colours and finishes, from natural stone effects to striking black. No matter the style of your Horsham property, there is an option to suit, and as a customer focused landscaping company, Inspired Landscapes & Groundworks helps you find the perfect option.
If your heart isn’t set on porcelain paving but you want a versatile and customisable material, block paving is also a popular option that comes in various colours, styles and patterns.
