Outdoor TILE FAQ's

Will my tiles fade or damaged or chlorine?

No, pool tiles are designed with this in mind so they will not discolor or fade over time.

Can pool tiles also be used inside as a splashback?

Yes, they can, the same installation process as interior tiles apply.

Can I use porcelain interior tiles for pools?

Yes, these can be used for pool floors, walls, and steps. We do recommend using a tile with antislip qualities for pool floors and steps.

Do you offer a solution for using grout as an all-in-one adhesive and grout?

With our Davco Glass Mosaic Additive mixed with our Davco Elite grout, you will be able to glue and grout in one simple step. Please contact our instore team for more information on these products prior to installation.

Will darker colour pavers get hotter in Summer?

Darker tiles tend to not reflect sunlight as well as lighter-coloured tiles thus resulting in warmer tiles during summer months.

Are Porcelain Pavers easy to clean?

Being exterior tiles, the surfaces are textured to meet antislip ratings. To clean simply use a hose with a hard bristle brush, this will be best way to maintain your product. We also have a range of Aquamix cleaners and maintenance products.

Can Porcelain Pavers be installed like normal porcelain tiles and grouted?

Provided they are installed on a concrete substrate these can be bedded down in tile adhesive and grouted.

When laying pavers down on grass, can they be touching, or do they need to have a space in-between?

They need to be spaced apart; cracking can occur when there is movement if the pavers are touching. We also recommend compacting the substrate prior to laying the pavers.

What is an R rating when reviewing tiles?
