Brick and concrete are porous materials. They cannot endure changing weather and extreme temperatures. Unless you live in an area that receives a moderate climate throughout the year, artificial tiles are never the right option for exterior paving applications.
Your patio will be exposed to weather and water (if you have a swimming pool) throughout the year. You should choose the high density, low porosity, and water tolerable natural stone pavers.
Hot temperatures and rainy weather are the common reasons for pavers’ premature wear and tear. Never choose a delicate material for patio and deck paving. Even if the bricks or concrete do not break down, you will notice stains and discoloured surface.
