are porcelain pavers durable

There are a lot of well-known benefits when it comes to porcelain paving. Porcelain tiles are water resistant, easy to clean, low maintenance, slip-resistant, and stain-resistant. But are they durable?

By definition, something that's durable is;

‘able to withstand wear, pressure, or damage; hard-wearing.’

So, how does porcelain paving hold up to this definition?

Porcelain pavers are durable because they're created with strength and longevity in mind. When we make our porcelain pavers, we combine clay with elements like quartz, silica and feldspar which, when heated at very high temperatures, creates a durable glass substrate throughout the body of the tile. This process is called vitrification, and it means that the resulting porcelain pavers are incredibly strong and non-porous – they absorb less than 0.05% of surface water in fact! 

Another benefit of vitrification is that the porcelain tiles are very sturdy and resistant to damage. They can endure a significant amount of force and remain intact, and are even resistant to chipping and cracking.
