Non-Slip Surface

Porcelain paving may appear smooth to some, and this can raise concerns about slipperiness. However, porcelain paving is a safe choice for a garden patio. The slipperiness of tiles is measured using a special rating that is denoted in “R” values. These range from R9 to R13. Our own products have certified ratings which make them suitable for exterior use even in areas prone to occasional wetness due to weather conditions, like rain.

You can use us as your preferred stone merchant with complete confidence.


Porcelain is crafted from clay and natural materials with impurities removed. It undergoes a vitrification process involving high-pressure kiln firing. The result is a robust and durable material with minimal water absorption. Porcelain’s high resistance to water ensures that the material remains unaffected by harsh weather, making these attractive tiles a lasting choice for your patio.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Porcelain paving stands out as a minimal maintenance solution. It is close to effortless to keep them in good condition. Thanks to advanced manufacturing processes, porcelain absorbs little by way of water, so our tiles are extremely resistant to staining, frost, moss and algae. Cleaning porcelain tiles is as simple as using warm and soapy water, which is much like cleaning the floor of your kitchen or any other hard surface inside the home.

Regularly removing loose debris and maintaining the area around plant pots and garden furniture will help preserve porcelain paving.


While porcelain is seen as a high-end product and has a higher initial cost compared to other materials, it provides excellent value for money over the long run. Durability, and minimal maintenance requirements, make it a cost-effective choice over time. Love Stone can offer a range of porcelain products to fit in with your budget, ensuring you can always find an option that aligns with your style preferences and your financial considerations.
