As mentioned above, porcelain stoneware is the best alternative for outdoor flooring due to its many technical advantages as a material.

One of the most important is its low porosity (less than 0.5%), which means that it does not absorb water, neither from the ground nor from rain, preventing it from breaking in the event of frost or sudden changes in temperature.

The non-porosity of outdoor porcelain floors also makes them resistant to stains and chemical agents, protecting their surface and appearance for longer, unlike other porous materials.

On the other hand, its compact and hard structure makes it an ideal material to resist scratches, knocks or any kind of daily outdoor situations, without wearing out.

Outdoor ceramic flooring is a material that is very easy to maintain and clean, which is a great advantage. And, of course, the wide variety of styles, formats and appearances available guarantee its success in any space.

To level a terrace floor or garden, the elementary tools and materials are a leveller and mortar.

However, depending on the condition and extent of the floor to be levelled, the materials to be used and the system may vary slightly. For example, it is not the same job to lay outdoor flooring on top of soil as it is to level the floor on top of a previous screed.

Therefore, in order to know how to level a specific exterior floor in the most optimal way, it is advisable to contact a tiling professional who can carry out the work with a quality result.

How to lay outdoor flooring is one of the first questions to take into account when renovating a terrace, patio or garden. When it comes to outdoor paving, the material to be laid and the adhesive to be used are equally important.

Therefore, if you are wondering how to tile your outdoor floor, the main recommendation is to contact the flooring manufacturer to ask for a list of recommended materials as adhesive.

Once we have the material, we must first level the ground, then prime the tiles and mix the adhesive.

We will lay the tiles with the help of a rubber mallet and, when all the tiles are laid and glued, the last step will be to apply the grout.

The basic trick to knowing how to clean porous outdoor floors lies in the materials used.

A quality microfibre mop, short bristle brushes and the use of neutral PH soap with warm water are some of the key elements in working out how to clean a porous outdoor floor.
