Porcelain is becoming increasingly popular, with the many benefits it's not hard to understand why.
There will always be colour variations between batches, ensure you order enough to complete your project from one batch, never mix batches, allowing additional material for cuts and wastage.
Always keep a record of the batch code of the porcelain you have collected or had delivered, just in case future stock is required. The Batch code is printed on the side of packaging boxes covering the porcelain paving products.
Please note the shade of the final product could differ slightly compared to the sample you may receive due to batch variation.
We recommend that all customers read our product selection, maintenance & installation guides before purchasing.
When installing Porcelain paving please ensure that you use Pro-prime to help bond the slabs to the sub-base, this product is available at all Natural Stone and Timber branches.
We have branches across the south coast of England, including Poole in Dorset, Winchester, Tadley, Romsey and Portsmouth in Hampshire. Internal showrooms are available to view in Poole and Portsmouth and External Display are available at Portsmouth, Poole, Winchester and Tadley.

As a rule no porcelain paving slabs do not fade, but over very long periods of time in sunny areas and with considerable weathering you could expect to see some slight changes to the appearance of the surface of the slabs.
Yes, our Porcelain Paving can be cut easily, but you will require a very good quality diamond blade made especially for porcelain. European Porcelain paving cuts a lot better than India and Chinese porcelain due to the improved production processes making them less brittle and prone to chipping.
Yes, it can be advisable to seal Porcelain Paving. This will further reduce porosity and keep any maintenance to an absolute minimum, but it is not essential and is basically a personal choice.
It is possible to stain Porcelain Paving but it's very difficult due to its very low porosity. Porcelain paving can be sealed to further help prevent staining in areas prone to spillages.
No Porcelain Paving does not scratch easily, it is an extremely dense material that is very hard to damage once installed. If the surface of Porcelain is damaged or scratch it is not possible to repair, so we would also recommend keeping a couple of extra slabs hidden in your garden just in case of future problems.
Yes, Porcelain slabs are incredibly low maintenance, they have very low porosity of 0.5% minimising dirt penetration into the surface meaning in normal situations no more than a general clean will ever be necessary.
Yes we believe we offer the best possible quality Porcelain paving that will far exceed any domestic requirements and will, if correctly installed, last for decades without requiring anything but general cleaning and maintenance.
Porcelain paving is a very hard and precisely manufactured products, so some additional knowledge is needed to handle this material correctly, but any well experienced landscape contractor with the correct tools will not have any problems installing any of our products.
Porcelain paving has become very competitively priced within the UK market, with a high quality Polish or Italian Porcelain product priced competitively against inferior imported porcelain and natural stone products. We would always recommend installing the best possible Porcelain Paving slabs you can afford as the actual costs of the paving materials itself, is only a fraction of the overall installation cost, and is the thing you will be left looking at for many years to come.
All paving that is used within the UK must be R11 slip rated to meet the current British standard for paving materials. All our Porcelain Paving products have been tested and meet or exceed these standards. Technical Data Sheets are available to view for all porcelain paving products, just follow the link on the product pages.
We always send a representative sample from the current batch of tiles or paving we have in stock, so as long as you requested a sample close to the time of purchasing, this will help to ensure the tiles and paving you receive matches the sample you have been sent as closely as possible.
All of our products are either natural or porcelain and therefore there is always scope for variation in shade, colour and to some extent the texture and finish with the natural products and with porcelain there will always be some slight colour variation between different batches, although the surface texture and finish will remain largely the same.
We would strongly recommend that you visit one of our showrooms or paving displays to look at the current selection, so you can be entirely sure of what you will receive.
