Not Your Average Paver
In the past, porcelain pavers have been synonymous with indoor tiling projects such as floors and walls. However, a new day has dawned in the world of porcelain pavers. There have been great strides made in the craftsmanship of these pavers with respect to increasing their size and thickness. Larger and thicker porcelain pavers have opened a new world in terms of where these pavers can be used. They now can be used in exterior structural and paving projects.
Just as with indoor porcelain pavers, these outdoor porcelain pavers are resistant to frost and skids. But it doesn’t stop there. They are quite durable. Amazingly, their breakage load is extremely high at 2,000 pounds! With these amazing benefits, exterior porcelain pavers are an excellent option for outdoor areas of high traffic, such as walkways, as well as gardens and patios.
Need pavers laid onto gravel, dirt, sand, or grass? These pavers are a great dry lay option. No grout or adhesives are needed, even when installed on roof decks, balconies, pool decks, plazas, elevated terraces, or rooftop terraces. Yet, they are so lightweight compared to comparably sized concrete pavers. In other words, these pavers offer so much flexibility!
The new and improved version of porcelain pavers is ideal for residential and commercial projects. Low maintenance is the middle name of this upgraded product. Cleaning these pavers is a breeze. They remain safe whether they are wet or dry. With such hardness, strength, scratch and abrasion resistance, slip resistance, stain resistance, corrosion resistance, fire resistance, mold and mildew resistance, and weather resistance (freezing or roasting temperatures, rain, drought…), they are a perfect choice for virtually all exterior undertakings.
Besides their grand functionality, these pavers are beautiful and they are offered in multiple sizes, patterns, textures, styles, and colors. There are options that look like cement, stone, wood…There are sleek options and rustic options. Again, these pavers present such flexibility when it comes to designs. There is something for everyone. And, they will look just as lovey years after they are placed as they do when they are first installed. Guaranteed!
