Spring has finally sprung, at least in New Jersey, and it’s time to get outside and enjoy the lovely weather. If your patio has taken a beating and it’s time for to spruce it up, or if you’re putting in a patio for the first time, porcelain pavers are a beautiful choice,
Not all faux stone pavers are made with concrete. In recent years, it has become popular to create beautiful pavers from porcelain. This is a durable material which can look great on the patio. Porcelain pavers are much thicker than the ceramic tile used indoors, enabling it to stand up to the weather.

Porcelain pavers are often designed to look like natural stone or wood, in both color and texture. Porcelain is an affordable and practical alternative to concrete pavers. Porcelain pavers have a lot to offer. Here’s a look at some of the key perks to working porcelain into your hardscape:

Traction – Porcelain offers excellent traction and is great for creating walkways in areas subject to rain or water from irrigation systems.
Durable – Porcelain is an extremely hard and tough material, and the pavers are even thicker than normal which adds to their strength.
Easy to Clean – Porcelain is relatively stain-resistant and is very easy to clean and maintain. Spills can be wiped up with a damp cloth.
Water-Resistant – Porcelain repels liquid penetration, which means rain and snow won’t be a problem.
Fireproof – Porcelain does not burn, which can help minimize fires from grills or firepits.
Repairs – Porcelain is resistant to cracking and breaking from physical impacts. However, if a tile does get damaged, the individual piece can be removed and replaced. It’s a good idea to save an extra box or two of the product during installation to make color matching easier.

Although porcelain is a great choice once it is complete, it is fragile during the installation process and should be installed by a professional.
