Porcelain Paving Frequently Asked Questions
Many ask what the best outdoor patio tiles for gardens are - one big benefit of outdoor porcelain paving is its stain resistance, scratch resistance and UV stability, meaning it will not stain, scratch, or lighten overtime and is very easy to maintain.
Porcelain paving is a man-made product that combines kaolin clay, finely ground sand and feldspar. The clay mixture is fired to an extremely high temperature, resulting in a very dense tile that benefits from a low water absorption rate, making an excellent choice for patios, gardens and a whole host of landscaping projects. The print of a stone effect outdoor tile is very realistic mimicking the look
of real stone patio tiles.
Porcelain pavers do not require sealing. The surface is very strong and near enough scratch resistant, stain resistant and will not lighten over time.
A fantastic benefit of porcelain pavers is that they are forgiving and very hardwearing. For regular maintenance, you can use a stiff brush to sweep and brush away any leaves or debris. Porcelain paving can be jet washed seasonally combined with a cleaner designed for porcelain, such as Lithofin Intensive Cleaner or Lithofin Outdoor Cleaner.
