Porcelain Tiled Patio Installers in Fairfax
Are you interested in replacing your old patio and want a modern and clean finish to the patio area? Our porcelain patio installers in Fairfax can install a beautiful new tiled patio at an unbeatable cost.
Porcelain has become one of the most popular patio tiles in the last few years, with installation costs dropping significantly compared to previous years.
It is laid similarly to other types of natural stone products, which are laid on a concrete bed. Still, the most significant difference in the installation steps is the application of a slurry primer. This boosts the adhesion of the porcelain to the concrete, which enables the grip of the mortar.
It can be concrete grouted, but we recommend applying a resin grout to the joints as it is flexible and will resist mould and other types of algae which can build up in the jointing otherwise.
What is Porcelain Tiling?
Porcelain tiles are made from particular clay. This is mixed with feldspar, kaolin, quartz, water, and colour pigment, depending on your desired colour or finish. Once you have the mixture, this is pressed into moulds to get the shape of the porcelain tile and fired in a kiln at extreme temperatures to harden it.
It is generally laid in one size, but that size can vary. The most popular type of porcelain is the 1200 x 900 tile, but we can provide samples to help you choose a size for your patio.
Since porcelain is a manufactured product, it is available in a wide range of colours and patterns with a high gloss finish or a more textured finish which helps to provide grip on the tiles when you walk on them.
