If you're looking for a durable garden paving solution, then granite may seem like the obvious choice - after all, what could be sturdier than thick granite paving slabs?
Well, believe it or not, granite paving is actually far from the strongest option on the market. Those heavy stone slabs can stand up to a lot of pressure, it's true, but they have a major Achilles' heel: porosity. Granite paving, like most natural stone products, is very porous, which means that your granite slabs will absorb a lot of moisture when they inevitably get wet. This in turn will cause stains and water damage, making your granite paving slabs look rather unsightly.
Fortunately, there is another way. If you want a durable patio solution with all the beauty of natural stone paving, our outdoor porcelain paving is a great alternative to granite. Porcelain boasts a significantly lower porosity than stone, and our slabs are every bit as strong and sturdy as any granite product.
