What Makes Porcelain Such a Unique Material?

Porcelain is a very hard substance and therefore, it is often chosen when durability would otherwise be a concern. Another interesting feature of this material involves its extremely low levels of porosity when compared to other substances. As it will absorb little moisture, it is also less likely to suffer from stains and discolouration over time. This is excellent in terms of maintenance requirements. These very same characteristics signify that porcelain patios are not as susceptible to moss, mould and algae. This substance is therefore a wise choice if you are concerned about your patio succumbing to the elements in the future.

The main initial benefit we see homeowners comment on is the amazing look and feel of the porcelain patio slabs, you will have a fully transformed garden with this premium patio product and one that simply wont ‘wear out’ or fade in our weather, if your budget allows it we highly recommend this option.

Safety Benefits and Longevity

Slipping and falling can represent concerns on occasion; especially for children and anyone with mobility issues. Due to the relatively non-porous nature of porcelain, it is much less slippery when compared to traditional stone, concrete and slate.

Thanks to the hardness of porcelain, it should also be mentioned that the surface of the patio is not likely to suffer from scratches, cracks and abrasions. Not only will this save you from requiring a replacement in the future, but let’s remember that water is much less likely to penetrate the surface and to impact the foundation of the patio.

Your Bespoke Design Options

As the expression goes, variety is the spice of life. The good news is that porcelain is available in a wide range of designs, styles and tones. It is therefore easy to achieve a specific look or to match the appearance of the patio with other areas of your garden (such as the exterior walls of your home). There can even be times when the porcelain is engineered to mimic other substances such as wood, brick or stone.

This level of flexibility is often preferred when compared to more generic options which tend to leave much to the imagination.
