How do you clean outdoor porcelain paving?

Our porcelain paving slabs are stain resistant as well as being strong and durable, and they require little to no effort to maintain and clean. You do not need any special products, and they do not require special attention to keep them looking brand new.

We recommend using a power washer or mixing a PH neutral detergent with water with a brush once a year to keep your black porcelain outdoor slabs looking the same as the day that you bought them.

What is the difference between porcelain, vitrified and sandstone?

Both porcelain and vitrified paving both go through the vitrification process making them strong, hard wearing and with low porosity, however the newly developed vitrified paving is slightly stronger than traditional porcelain paving.

Vitrified tiles are made using a combination of clay, feldspar, silica, and quartz which is hydraulically pressed together and then fired at temperature between 1200 and 1550 degrees Celsius. The vitrification process occurs when the heat is between these two temperatures, and the finished product produces an extremely strong glass type quality. Porcelain tiles go through the same vitrification process; however, these tiles are not hydraulically pressed before they are fired. It is this pressing, the new combination of ingredients and higher baking temperatures which have enabled the new production of vitrified tiles to become even stronger and more durable than traditional porcelain tiles.

Sandstone on the other hand is a naturally formed stone that is found in India, and the tiles are usually cut down from much larger stones. This means that sandstone tiles do not go through the same manufacturing process as porcelain and vitrified tiles, and sandstone tiles are slightly more brittle and a lot more porous. Sandstone paving tiles will naturally fade over time due to exposure to direct sunlight, whereas porcelain tiles will keep the same colour and patterns.

Natural variation information

Our black porcelain paving slabs have a printed design and will not fade when exposed to direct sunlight thanks to the high firing temperatures used in the manufacturing process.

Installation and Aftercare

With the right materials and preparation, installing outdoor porcelain tiles can be an easy task. Installing your own outdoor area can be extremely rewarding, but make sure that you handle your tiles with care to avoid breakages.

You will firstly need to mark out the area that you wish to pave and remember to add additional tiles for breakages and waste cut offs. You will then need to prepare the ground and dig a base around 15-20mm deep. Your base should be even and solid and you may need an additional layer of sand or fine gravel to help the tiles bond more securely.

 

Once the base is ready, you will need to add a layer of mortar onto the compressed soil or sand. The tiles will need priming before you begin to lay, and once these have been primes with a priming slurry you are ready to lay your patio! Once all the tiles have been laid, you will need to use an exterior grout to ensure that your tiles are secure and safe.

If you wish to clean your new patio, simply sweep away the debris and wash with water. You can either simply power wash the patio or use a PH neutral detergent and water so you don’t bleach the tiles.
