Even though porcelain paver tiles have been in the home construction arena for a while now, they continue to grow in popularity. As more and more people discover the benefits of working with porcelain for exterior living spaces (everything from rooftop decks to patios to walkways), this material becomes more prevalent across residential and commercial jobs with each passing year.

Among companies that provide this material, Archatrak is one of the leading industry names. They’ve been in the business since 2001 and were instrumental in bringing Italian-made porcelain pavers into the US construction market.

 

Working with Archatrak provides a range of benefits, but one particularly large differentiating factor for their customers is the wide array of color options within their line of porcelain pavers.

First Things First: What Is a Porcelain Paver?

Before diving into the specifics of what colors you can select, what exactly is a porcelain paver, and what are some of the key characteristics and benefits of this material?

A porcelain paver is just that—a paver tile made out of exterior-grade porcelain. Just as you’d be able to find concrete pavers, this is the same basic product that’s used for the same kinds of projects, but it’s made with a superior material.

Some of the key benefits of porcelain include the following:

  • Durability
  • Scratch resistance
  • Color fade resistance
  • Slip resistance
  • Stain resistance
  • Impermeability

-This means no water can get into the material and cause freezing, cracking, or mold or mildew build-up.

  • Fireproof qualities
  • Porcelain pavers from Archatrak are also compatible with their pedestal installation system, meaning install is typically easier, quicker, and cheaper than a comparable job with a different style of paver.

 

Archatrak Porcelain Paver Color Selection

While some mom-and-pop establishments technically offer porcelain paver tiles, they are almost always ordering on demand. Archatrak, however, imports and warehouses stock every month, so customers have immediate access to a range of colors and styles. This comes to approximately fifty options immediately on hand and more than two hundred additional colors that can be directly requested from Archatrak’s Italian suppliers. 

With such variety, Archatrak provides more than just a range of colors. They also offer tiles that mimic the visual characteristics of wood, natural stone, cement, and more.
