Having a new patio can be an exciting project. To help you with your choice here are the main advantages of the most popular paving types:
1. Natural stone paving – more traditional types of patio slabs are made from natural stone, limestone, granite and sandstone. With such a variety of natural stones available it’s easy to find suitable colours for the style of your property. With sandstone paving, no two slabs are alike. The tone and colour of the paving is different depending on the light and weather conditions.
2. Concrete paving – concrete paving slabs are often the cheapest option. Their appearance can vary from a clean, uniform finish to an intentionally mixed look. How about minimalist, smooth, contemporary concrete paving slabs? This type of slab is stain-resistant and will keep your patio looking clean.
3. Cobblestone paving – due to their smaller size, cobblestones are also very popular for patios, driveways, courtyards and terraces. Cobbles tend to work really well on patios making a smaller space look larger than it is. They are hard-wearing, durable and will last the test of time.
4. Porcelain paving – man-made porcelain paving is not only easy to maintain but is algae and frost resistant too. It’s long-lasting and if patterned, won’t fade. Porcelain paving also stays clean and has a natural finish. It can create the perfect transition between a kitchen or dining room out onto the patio.
