For outdoor surfaces such as driveways and carports which are subject to light residential traffic, ¾” thick T20 porcelain pavers offer an attractive alternative to clay brick and concrete paving. The pavers will need to be laid over a prepared concrete base, but one of the major advantages is that you’ll have an unmatched range of colors to choose from. Plus porcelain pavers are exceptionally resistant to staining, even from oil and grease, and not subject to freeze/thaw cracking in cold climates, like concrete paving.
For heavier duty applications, we recommend the 50% thicker T30 porcelain pavers with over three times the breaking strength of T20 pavers. These thicker, stronger pavers can either be laid over a concrete base as with the T20 pavers, or depending on the anticipated traffic and loading, laid over a well compacted gravel base.
For a more dramatic, rustic look we suggest porcelain cobblestones, either in the 8″ x 8″ or 12″ x 8″ tile format or the smaller 4″ x 4″ but thicker, blocks.
