How to choose paving tiles

How to make the tiled floor on the track or platform was durable, reliable, beautiful? From the person who is engaged in the solution of this issue, you need two things: choose a team and choose the right tile.

Site preparation, adherence to technology and other purely working issues depend on the foremen. To choose a covering it is already necessary independently. At stake: frost resistance, color fastness, durability, overall aesthetics. And given that now only lazy is not engaged in the production of paving slabs, it is not easy to choose it.

Basically you need to take into account such characteristics:

  • paving material;
  • appearance;
  • life time;
  • sizes.

Material

Paving slabs

The classic base is concrete. About 90% of the volume of production is made from it. The quality of such paving concrete at the height, so if you do not plan to create a super-original design, choose it. Alternatives: natural stone, rubber, burnt clay.

Appearance

What is important is not aesthetics assessment. Ideal if you can see the tile in the cut. A good sign: the absence of sharp transitions in the density of the layers. Cavities and pores, on the contrary, are a signal of poor quality products.

Also, when viewing the slice, you need to evaluate the color. The tile should be painted throughout the thickness, and not just on the surface. Otherwise, the product will begin to pass moisture and collapse in less than a year of operation. Look at the intensity of the shade: it should be moderately bright, but not acidic. The latter signals an oversupply of pigment, which leads to tile fragility.

Lifetime of paving slabs

The warranty period for paving slabs is determined by the manufacturer. It usually ranges from 3 to 5 years. In fact, this coating lasts longer. Terms depend on the manufacturing technology. The vibrated casting is less durable (will last about 7 years); vibropressed "keeps in shape" 30 years and more.

Sizes of paving slabs

Put a row of several bars of the same type (from one batch or not - it does not matter). Products must differ by a maximum of a few millimeters. If the differences are noticeable visually, then the installation will have problems.

Alternative

There is one more way - to begin with a choice of a plant of paving slabs worthy of trust. In this case, the product can be no doubt. It is easier to choose the appropriate option from the range of one manufacturer than from the products of several dozen factories. In addition, you can always ask for help from the consultants of the store.

We wish you a good choice!
