Porcelain tiles patios in Dublin are an excellent option for a patio, garden or pathway surface with various colour choices and textures.
Porcelain is popular for patios because it is highly durable, low-maintenance, and easy to clean. It is also resistant to fading from UV rays, which helps it to maintain its original colour even after years of exposure to the elements. Additionally, porcelain tiles come in a wide range of colours, textures, and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect option for any outdoor space.
Porcelain is also slip-resistant and can be used in wet areas, making it an ideal choice for pool decks, patios, and other outdoor areas.
Porcelain tiles are made from a mixture of very fine clay, sand and feldspar. This mixture is moulded, pressed into the desired shape, and fired at high temperatures to remove more moisture from the tile. This makes the tiles hard, dense and durable. To further improve the strength of the tile, grinding beads - crushed cement - are often added to the mix. Porcelain tiles are also fired at a higher temperature than ceramic tiles, making them more rigid and resistant to staining and wear.
Our porcelain patios are installed on a wet mortar base, and each tile slab has slurry primer applied to it to help boost the adhesion of the tile. We use only suitable machinery, including diamond-tipped Stihlsaws and angle grinders, to ensure each porcelain cut is done precisely.
We grout out porcelain tiled patios with a resin geo-fix grout which is mould resistant and keep the joints flexible, or you can opt for a wet mortar joint which is resistant to damage from jet washing.
Along with our porcelain tiling services, we provide other choices, such as patio installations in Dublin, limestone patio installations and more.
