Posted on July 11, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

DSC_0232If you’re adding a patio to your backyard, tile is a great option for its durability, strength and beauty, but not all tile fits the bill. Below we have a few things to consider to ensure your tile needs are being fulfilled and are safe for outdoor use.

  1. Porcelain tile is a great option because it is non porous, durable, and they come in array of stone and wood appearances.
  2. Natural stones like limestone, slate, flagstone and quartz will also look great and give your backyard a more natural aesthetic. It will cost a bit more, but it is a beautiful and strong option.
  3. Make sure the tile you select is not too slippery, especially if you have a pool.
  4. Consider the color and style of your home and make sure the patio flooring offers a smooth transition.
