How much does a porphyry floor cost?
I imagine that you want to have at least an idea of how much an external porphyry floor will cost, including laying. We will try to satisfy this curiosity, although I hope you will understand that the price can only be an indication.
There are many factors that affect the cost of an outdoor paving: issues such as slopes, thicknesses, the presence of grates, drains and manholes must be managed.
Just to give an example: 100 metres in a square courtyard (easy) will cost LESS than the same 100 metres of porphyry but laid in a one-metre wide pavement, perhaps full of seals and grates.
Then you have to consider the perimeter elements, the total thickness to be filled, the type of grouting, the amount of joints...
But we understand that it is important for you to have some indications, so we give you a range of prices that our customers usually spend for a floor:
► Uncut porphyry flooring (or irregular porphyry slabs) including laying, bedding, grouting, joints etc. = 50 to 60 euros per square metre
► Flooring in cube tiles laid in radial pattern (contrasting arches) including laying, bedding, grouting and joints = 75 to 80 euros per square metre
► Squared porphyry tile flooring, including laying, bedding, grouting and joints, again from 75 to 85 euros per square metre: this depends on the size of the squared tiles chosen and any presence of perimeter borders or bands.
To these prices must be added the cost of any decorations or inserts in other materials in the flooring.
