Benefits of Porcelain Patio Paving
Porcelain paving will not fade or lose it’s colour.
Will not deteriorate in extreme weather conditions such as freezing and thawing.
Porcelain is not porous which prevents moss and algae from establishing itself as it can on a porous surface like natural stone.
Porcelain paving is easy to clean.
Sandstone & Limestone Paving
Sandstone and Limestone are very attractive natural stones which is extremely strong and durable. They come in Black, Blues, Greys, and Golden colours.
Limestone colours will soften with time, however it can be sealed to prevent colour alternations from UV light, for example to keep black stones looking black versus fading slightly to grey.
Sandstone and Limestone, like most natural stones, are porous and are therefore more susceptible to staining compared to porcelain. If sealed, they are less susceptible to to staining.
Patio Grouting and Pointing
For the perfect finish, we recommend Jointing Compounds or exterior Grouting.
Jointing Compounds are easy to install and repair and will not stain your new patio.
They are available in a variety of colours to suit your style.
