GeoCeramica® makes an impact at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show

Brett Landscaping turned heads at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show by revealing GeoCeramica, the UK’s first porcelain paving product useable on both driveways and gardens.

Hosted in late March at the NEC, the Homebuilding & Renovating Show provides a wealth of products and knowledge for homeowners and specifiers looking to complete their next project. 

GeoCeramica® is available in three thicknesses, 10mm, 40mm and 60mm. 40mm is ideal for patio paving whilst 10mm works well for both indoor spaces and for exterior detailing elements such as step treads. The 60mm variety of GeoCeramica® paving in Bluestone is the UK’s first commercially available porcelain paving that is suitable for use on driveways.

This range of thicknesses provides a wealth of design options for homeowners and designers alike, who can match or contrast their garden or driveway to different tastes and styles.

So what makes GeoCeramica® so unique?

The dense nature of the porcelain makes it virtually impervious to staining, moss and lychen growth and therefore almost maintenance free.

Unfortunately, this great strength also makes it susceptible to becoming detached from Type 1 sub-base materials commonly used in UK construction.

This happens when water leaks into the joint creating freeze/thaw cycles common during the British winder which can in turn lead to the porcelain paving coming loose.

Unlike many porcelain products currently sold in the UK, GeoCeramica® has been designed with the UK’s cold winters in mind to provide long-lasting durability with the base of all GeoCeramica® paving flags coming to a pre-bonded drainage mortar base.

This means that GeoCeramica® will remain impervious to the effects of freeze/thaw actions through winter in the long term. In addition, GeoCeramica® is installed using conventional methods means that GeoCeramica® paving offers significant time savings during installation.

Each pre-bonded flag unit features integrated spacer nibs on all four sides to ensure easy, rapid and accurate laying consistently.

Inspired by nature, GeoCeramica® is available in four variations, each of which is available in several colours. Designers and homeowners will have options all the way from the front driveway right to the back garden.

  • Impasto: Designed to deliver the traditional look of Belgium Bluestone, Impasto’s subtle veins, lines and patterns are available in either Grigio or Noir.
  • Marmostone: Inspired by natural marble paving, Marmostone is an excellent choice for the garden and is available in Black, Grey and Taupe.
  • Fiordi: Fiordi’s textured, variegated surface is inspired by sandstone, and is available in Fumo, Grigio and Sand colours.
  • Bluestone: Bluestone has an elegant, densely specked surfaces finish – the impermeability of porcelain makes it immune to the staining resulting from vehicle use, making it an excellent new option for driveways.

Rugged and beautiful, easy and efficient to install, GeoCeramica®  will change the way that you see your gardens and drives.
