PORCELAIN TILE IS SLIP-RESISTANT
The idea of
porcelain often conjures images
of delicate, ornate teacups and
china that people only bring out
on special occasions. Porcelain
may seem like the last material
you would use for an outdoor
patio or walkway. However,
porcelain in large tile or slabs
form has many qualities that
make it ideal for outdoor use.
Porcelain tiles perform well
under all weather conditions,
are easy to care for, durable,
slip-resistant, and beautiful to
boot. Porcelain tiles are
manufactured from kiln-fired
clay along with a few other
materials. Because of this, they
can be precision-cut to exact
dimensions, which makes them
easy to install. Find out about
the many advantages of using
porcelain tile outdoors for your
patio, roof, terrace, walkways,
PORCELAIN LARGE TILE OR PORCELAIN SLABS IS HARD-WEARING
It is hard to beat large porcelain tiles in terms of durability. They are very hard, and yet they are scratch-resistant. Because they are fired at very high temperatures, they are nearly impenetrable. This keeps fine dirt particles from being lodged in their surface, making them resistant to mold and moss growth. Your porcelain tiles will look new for many years after installation due to their inherent strength and water resistance. Porcelain pavers will stand up to patio furniture, pets, and children without showing wear.
PORCELAIN TILE IS WEATHER RESISTANT
The near-impenetrability of porcelain tiles creates a surface that can indeed hold up to any weather conditions. They are ideal for use in areas where temperatures drop below freezing in the winter. Since they do not absorb water, they will not crack due to the cold. Porcelain tiles are highly recommended for climates that receive direct solid sunlight since they will not fade. During firing, the high temperatures they are subject to vitrifies the color, which means it becomes part of the material and thus cannot be separated from it. These qualities make them a superior material for use in a wide variety of climates and conditions. Many of our customers choose porcelain tile outdoors over stone or concrete because porcelain will look virtually the same after ten years of outdoor use as they do in our showroom.
PORCELAIN TILE IS EASY TO MAINTAIN
When used outdoors, large porcelain tiles or Porcelain Slabs are the ultimate low-maintenance material. Unlike concrete pavers, porcelain tiles will not effloresce, which means they will not produce a whitish buildup that is very difficult to remove. And unlike many stone pavers, they will not be damaged by household cleaners. Since they do not stain easily, an occasional light pressure wash or cleaning with a light household cleaner is all that’s needed to keep porcelain tile outdoors looking their best. Even warm, soapy water effectively cleans porcelain tile, which adds to its environmentally friendly resume.
PORCELAIN TILE IS SLIP-RESISTANT
Porcelain tiles are manufactured with various surface qualities ranging from smooth to matte. A matte finish will provide enough slip resistance to be used around a swimming pool. When choosing your tile, take slip resistance into account. Because porcelain tiles are rated according to how slippery they are, you can easily select an appropriate finish for your project.
PORCELAIN TILE IS EASY TO INSTALL
Because porcelain tiles are manufactured rather than mined, they are molded into precise dimensions that perfectly fit them. And because they are perfectly level (unlike quarried stone), they can be easily laid over various bases, including gravel, sand, concrete, and grass. Also, in contrast to stone, they are lightweight, easy, and inexpensive to transport and lay.
PORCELAIN TILE IS BEAUTIFUL
The elegance of porcelain tile outdoors is brutal to match. A classic look can be created using a range of whites or black/grey coloring, including travertine and quartz. The modular sizing allows for several patterns, creating an attractive yet subtle effect in any space. Manufactured porcelain tile has the benefit of being natural yet looking utterly modern with a sleek, minimal, and clean look. A unique advantage of using porcelain is that it can be continued indoors to out, creating flow between your kitchen and patio.
