Many commercial and residential establishments tend to love the look and ambiance provided by natural stone, but hate the upkeep. Tile Tech Pavers carries an array of advanced alternatives to natural stone pavers, that will give you that natural hardscape look you want, without having to worry about porosity or sealing. But which natural stone alternative should you choose? To help you decide, we’ve outlined the three most popular types of natural stone paving tile alternatives and how they’ll benefit your commercial property.

1. Travertine Pavers

Travertine has been used to elevate architectural designs since the era of Ancient Rome. The even, light beige color of travertine pavers enables them to make any hardscape look lighter, brighter, and more spacious, making them a popular choice among home and business owners worldwide. Travertine comes in a variety of tones and textures that can give your landscape an old-world look or the feeling of a Mediterranean oasis. Travertine is a great paving solution for roof decks due to its ability to retain its color even when exposed to harsh conditions and constant weather changes. It’s an extremely durable material that offers an unparalleled aesthetic appeal that will elevate the design of any home or business.

2. Quartzite Slate Series

People who are drawn to our Quartzite series are typically looking for that American-mined stone paver beauty and incredible durability. Our Quartzite series comes in a variety of natural earth tones that will complement any residential or commercial design. Whether your look is rustic, traditional, or contemporary, there’s a Quartzite Slate paver that will match your needs. These pavers can be cut in uniform sizes and shapes for a neatly installed deck or pool area, or they can be cut into irregular shapes and sizes for more free-form applications such as walkways and garden paths. It’s also incredibly long-lasting, making it a worthwhile investment for any property seeking the appeal of natural stone pavers for its landscaping.

3. Rustic and IPE Wood Series

If you’re aiming for a rustic, natural landscape design to complement your commercial or residential project, our Rustic Wood Series and IPE Deck Tiles are a perfect choice. Tile Tech’s range of porcelain pavers features not only simulated timber plank finishes but also a unique range of simulated weathered wood finishes which replicate the appearance and features of natural reclaimed wood but without the disadvantages of fading, twisting, warping, decay, and poor fire resistance inherent in natural wood. Their lightweight characteristics also make them easier to transport and install, making them a great option for projects involving high-rise buildings. Similarly, our IPE Deck Tiles are designed for constructing raised wood decks over exterior surfaces such as rooftops, terraces and plazas, in both residential and commercial applications. They come specifically designed for installation on adjustable pedestal supports, allowing you to build perfectly horizontal deck surfaces over sloping or irregular surfaces with no problem at all. 

Although we’ve addressed 3 types of paver alternatives for a natural look, Tile Tech carries a range of other options as well.
