Tiled patio - is it worth it

una o connor
4 years ago

We are getting a patio done this spring and I would really like to tile it. We live in the Mid-West of Ireland (plenty of rain) and I have a north facing garden so the patio space will only get sunlight in the afternoon/evening.

I would like to tile this outdoor space but a lot of people said it'll be slippy, they'll wear badly and they're just not suitable for an Irish climate. I'm looking at porcelain tiles (frost resistant) that are r11 so suitable (on paper) for outdoors, but would love some advise from anyone that has outdoor tiles and if it's worth it! Thank you
