Another thing that should be a big selling point that most people don’t actually think about when they’re looking for outdoor materials is how easy it is to clean. You won’t be mopping your patio any time soon, so you need something that will come clean with the hose when the birds dive bomb your brand new patio, or when someone drops a bowl of dip onto it. Slate is not very porous, especially after it has been waterproofed, so you won’t have to scrub for any normal messes.
One may ask, what is a patio slab? A slab is a block consisting of a thick piece of a material. This block shape makes it easier to be installed. One can install block by block the patio, as a gradual process, which makes the installation cheaper. Traditionally patio slabs used to be considered the ones which were made out of concrete to form a less expensive and yet functional patio space. This type of patio was cheaper because concrete is less expansive than other materials like the ostentatious stones used for paving a patio.
Paving slabs come in an unbelievable variety of sizes, designs and textures today that you will have a tough time choosing what you want if you finally decide to get them installed. Most of them are known for their long lasting quality and do not require any special kind of maintenance. So actually they are really worth the price that you finally pay for them. Majority of these stones come with a life time guarantee which is another great benefit.
A lot of people have started using slate for their outdoor spaces again, whether for patios, walkways, or even driveways, it is making a comeback in a big way. It is hard to believe that people ever started to shy away from slate when you’re looking at a finished project that used it, but those in the know understand that the ongoing maintenance might have people shying away from using the material in their own projects.
