As with roofing, it's wise to select the same type of flooring as that used indoors. or something very similar, so your stoep appears to be another room. The ideal stoep floor should be durable and easy to maintain - tiles, paving stones and concrete are popular options.

Tiles

  • Tiles require little effort and include a variety of options.
  • Ceramics are known for their durability and resistance to water, chemicals and fire. This is often the most economical and is virtually maintanance-free. The tiles are usually glazed, so they don't need to be sealed but do treat the grouting.
  • Porcelain tiles are made from ceramics baked at a higher temperature to ensure vitrification. The result is a hard, dense tile that is water- and stain-resistant, and ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Terracotta is the warmest of all the tiles with a wonderful informal appearance. Manufactured from clay fired at lower temperatures than other tiles, terracotta tiles are vulnerable to water damage unless properly sealed.
  • Natural stone tiles increase the value of your home as it's durable and the look is timeless - each tile has a unique appearance. Slate and sandstone are your best outdoor options, but remember that stone needs a proper foundation that can withstand a lot of weight.

Nonslip paving stones
These are ideal for a stoep; unlike tiles that have to be laid on a concrete foundation, pavers can be laid on a bed of river sand. But because pavers are exposed to heavy outdoor furniture, plant containers and the elements, it's essential that they be professionally installed. Seal the pavers to preserve their colour, make cleaning easier and reduce maintanance.

Concrete floors
A simple, unpretentious concrete floor has a unique charm and there are may products on the market that allow you to turn it into something special.

Advice and Handy Tips

    First tile then paint

    Q. We have been dreaming of re-doing our kitchen for years now. After much debate we decided to take the plunge and go for it. Now we are wondering what we should do first, paint the walls or tile the floor?

    A. Well this question caused quite some debate in the Boland Painters, Builders and Electrical Contractor's office, but in the end we all agreed that tiling first is the best option. Allow the tile cement and grout to dry completely then cover the floor with heavy duty plastic taping the edges to the tiles with masking tape. And then start painting the walls. After all it is easier to cover a floor that it is to cover all the walls.
