• Porcelain Paving For The Pragmatic

    Porcelain is one of the most diverse materials available to man. It can be crafted to many items all the way from frying pans to tiny figurines. It was only about time that builders and interior designers saw the immense potential for this material to be used in paving indoor and outdoor areas.

    The process of making Porcelain requires extreme care and meticulous techniques. This stone is crafted by baking a mixture of sand, clay and a few other minerals, in a severely heated kiln. The result is a marvellous stone that is durable and non-porous. Furthermore, the clean look of Porcelain offers a post-modern appearance to your indoor and outdoor areas, complimented by a mesmerising collection of colours and patterns.

    The Porcelain stone offers a plethora of advantages such as incredible breaking strength, low maintenance, a smooth texture and much more, making this stone a very sought after product in Australia and in beautiful homes all over the world. Unlike some of the other materials, Porcelain requires very little maintenance that is considered negligible in the grand scheme of home maintenance. At least one thing that can take care of itself can’t be too bad. The smooth texture of porcelain allows it to be rid of dirt or algae sticking on to it. However, it should also be noted that we offer an anti-slip surface on our Porcelain pavers, leaving no space for injuries in the case of rains or around pool areas.

    Porcelain pavers are truly multi-purpose and can be used in:

    • Driveways
    • Parking lots
    • Patios
    • Balconies
    • Pool areas

    Furthermore, Porcelain paving can replace any type of paving while preserving its natural shine and shimmer. This type of paving is available in several styles that carry the persona of natural stones such as:

    • Basalt stone
    • Blue stone
    • Limestone
    • Slatestone and much more

  • Paving Your Way Towards Smarter Decisions

    Considering paving for your home or commercial property can prove to be a daunting task. Unlike installing a new piece of furniture or purchasing new equipment, paving is a long term consideration that will impact several factors such as aesthetics, ease of access, functionality and even brand image to name just a few.

    In case of commercial properties, the scale of each aspect is magnified to greater proportions. Therefore, business owners and planning authorities need to consider long term benefits and maintenance considerations that will accommodate both property evaluations and environmental considerations. Whereas when it comes to home paving, the spectrum of aspects that paving can affect are seen to be fewer but crucial for home owners, one of the strongest aspects being the re-sale value of homes.

    Here we list a few tips that can shape the process of smart paving:

    • Defining the cause
      Before commencing to look for any paving companies or materials, the primary step is to gauge the actual requirement by analysing the cause of why paving is necessary, and also the outcomes that are expected from it. This understanding is critical to define a budget and make the whole process from selection to review run efficiently.
    • Choosing the paving material This is probably one of the more exciting parts of a paving plan. Decisions regarding this aspect of planning revolve around several aspects such as the look and feel of the property, permeability, future re-sale value and much more. It is always recommended to hire a professional paving company to assist you with the planning phase. However, some prior research goes a long way in adding your inputs to the whole process.
    • Choosing the right people Choosing the right people for the job is very important. This decision can be made on the basis of the company’s track record. A company with satisfied customers is the right way to go, as often there are several suppliers who make claims of great quality and craftsmanship but end up delivering only half of it.
    • Fixing a budget An ideal budget is one where you get what you want at a price that doesn’t set you back too much. However, it is important to consider that in case of paving, the benefits are long term and not very obvious at first. Investing in the right company with the right resources goes a long way in ensuring that you don’t end up spending too much for maintenance in the years to come.

    Paving is a process that requires careful planning and considerations. We sincerely hope this article can add a dimension of pragmatic thought into your planning process.
