Can Split Face wall cladding tiles be installed in an external environment like internal installation?

Split Face wall cladding tiles can be installed in any internal space of your home for example a feature wall in your lounge, kitchen or dining space. Split Face tiles aren’t suitable on walls where there’ll be prolonged periods of direct contact with water, such as shower enclosures, even if a sealer is used. However, they can be used in wet areas if the wall has been tanked and there is a lip/edge fix at the top of the tiles to prevent water from running down the back of the tiles.
For external walls providing, the Split Face wall cladding tiles must be back butted and have a lip or ledge fixing at the top of the tiled wall to prevent rainwater from running down the back and damaging the joints. Use a water-resistant adhesive to secure the tiles to the walls and use a stone sealer after installing.
If you’re using Split Face tiles around fireplaces, use a heat-resistant adhesive.
Our most popular range is the Ice Silver Grey Quartzite, White Quartzite, Oyster Riven, Black Sparkle Split Face mosaic wall cladding tiles and many more colours.

Why have Porcelain paving slabs become a popular choice for natural stone paving?

Porcelain slabs and patio packs have become a very popular choice for many individual customers, builders and landscapers because they are very versatile, durable, easy to install and maintain since it is water stain, frost and fade resistant with an R11 slip resistance rating.
Although this is not a natural product sourced from quarries it still gives an authentic look to natural stone paving slabs and requires very little ongoing care. Porcelain paving slabs do not need any requirement to be sealed and are moss & algae resistant. Installing porcelain paving to natural stone is down to personal choice or recommendation from a landscaper or builder.

Do natural paving slabs or Split Face wall cladding tiles need to be sealed?

Although it is not necessary to seal your natural paving stone it is certainly a discussion you need to have with your professional installer.
If you do decide to seal your natural paving stone it is recommended to do this once the efflorescence process has taken place once laid especially on the outdoor natural paving slabs and patio packs (once all the salt deposits reach the surface, this timeframe will differ and environment they are installed).
There are 2 particular sealers available on the market which depend on the result you are looking for? The first option is an invincible sealer to maintain the natural look or an enriched sealer to bring out vibrant colours to your natural paving slabs or wall cladding Split Face tiles.
For internal Split Face wall cladding tiles once again it is not necessary to seal the wall cladding tile’s although it may be appropriate to seal any external environment they are being installed.
Any sealing we recommend you discuss this with your professional installer on the suitability of sealing your natural paving stone because with any external paving slabs there are many reasons which could influence the decision to seal the paving slabs, especially on any outdoor installation for example staining from tree’s, wet leaves, bird droppings, pets, moss, algae build-up, spillages such as wine or barbecue residue and excess moisture from building up within natural stone that will also help to avoid frost damage from occurring.
Always test on a small sample area or off cut to ensure compatibility of any sealer before full-scale application.
