What is the Difference Between Sandstone and Porcelain Paving?
When deciding between Sandstone, Limestone, and Porcelain Paving, it's essential to consider specific features and criteria that align with your garden and lifestyle.
Porcelain Paving is a man-made product meticulously crafted in factories, allowing developers full control over patterns and designs. Our Porcelain paving slabs, composed of sought-after minerals like pure Clay and Quartz, result in sturdy and aesthetically pleasing garden features. During production, each slab undergoes intense heat treatment at 1400 degrees Celsius and substantial pressure, ensuring strength and resilience, even against heavy foot traffic.
Conversely, Sandstone and Limestone Paving slabs are naturally occurring stones formed over millions of years in stone quarries. These stones are extracted in sizable blocks and then cut to size. Natural Indian Stones create authentic and rustic garden patios with unique, naturally occurring patterns that can never be replicated, making them an excellent choice for older properties or gardens seeking an antique look.
In terms of strength and longevity, Sandstone falls slightly short of Porcelain Paving. Due to their natural origin and being cut from larger stone pieces, they are more brittle and prone to cracking during installation. Additionally, natural stone slabs are not UV stable and may discolour over time.
Lastly, it's crucial to note a significant difference in maintenance between these two paving materials. Porcelain Paving requires priming during installation but does not need sealing. To maintain its longevity, regular sweeping and semi-annual jet washing is sufficient. In contrast, Sandstone and Limestone require regular sealing to preserve the vibrancy of the paving slabs but keep in mind that their colour may lighten over the years, even with regular sealing.
Why Choose Porcelain Paving?
Many contemporary homeowners and gardening enthusiasts prefer Porcelain garden slabs due to the extensive range of consistent colours and designs available. This allows you to exercise precise control over the aesthetics of your garden—a level of freedom and variety not achievable with natural Indian stone. Indian Sandstone slabs, on the other hand, offer fewer options in terms of colours, and their natural variations mean you are guaranteed a completely unique design but with limited control. Your choice between a more modern garden (Porcelain) or a rustic one (Sandstone) should align with your vision.
One of the significant advantages of factory-made garden paving slabs lies in the rigorous control exercised during production. This results in slabs engineered for durability, longevity, and qualities that help maintain their structure and colour over the years.
Throughout the development process of these porcelain slabs, strict protocols are followed to ensure their durability and strength. Each slab undergoes intense heating to 1400 degrees Celsius and is subjected to substantial pressure. The slabs are vitrified and rectified, all designed to ensure they remain pristine for decades after installation, regardless of weather conditions or foot traffic.
As mentioned earlier, the designs are printed onto the patio slabs, ensuring uniformity among them. This enables you to create a seamless, harmonious appearance in your garden without anything appearing out of place. This level of consistency is not achievable with natural Indian Sandstone, where colours and shades may vary, leading to inconsistencies throughout your patio.
