BENEFITS OF USING PORCELAIN TILE OUTSIDE

There are several advantages to using porcelain tile in an outdoor setting. If you’re planning to remodel an outdoor patio, walkway, or pool surround, find out why porcelain just might be the perfect choice for you.


 

OPTIONS  Outdoor porcelain tile is available in a wide variety of designs, making it very easy to coordinate with your surrounding landscape and architecture. Beautiful new colors, textures, and styles are being introduced to the market regularly so your only stumbling block may be feeling overwhelmed with choices!

FORMAT  Outdoor porcelain tile is typically available in large formats like 24x24 or 24x48. These jumbo sizes, which are uncommon in the paver or natural stone industry, equate to less pieces of tile needed to cover a layout.

MODULAR DESIGN  Since porcelain tile is manufactured, it’s a product that features very accurate sizing and tolerances. Calculating the amount of material needed for a project is therefore a fairly simple task. And the thinking and planning behind a layout/installation is also simplified when you’re working with exact sizes! 

DURABILITY  Porcelain tile is strong … really strong. And not only will it hold up against heavy traffic, but it also offers the added benefit of stain resistance. 

FREEZE/THAW RESISTANCE  With practically no water absorption, porcelain tile can withstand freeze/thaw cycles, making it a safe option to use even in areas that experience harsh winters.
