Porcelain Pavers Experience

I'm embarking on my first pool build for a new home in Arizona, which will be completed in May. The wife and I are going for a modern/contemporary look and feel to the yard and will likely be going with porcelain pavers (3/4in thick) for the decking and patios. Leaning towards Belgard Quartziti 2.0 - Glacier or MSI Arterra - Beton Blanco both of which have matching copings. Belgard is more $, but also has much more texture, which I like.

Anyone have any experience with porcelain that they can share? Thanks

Well no. But I'm in the same boat as you. I've got a dig date of late April and I want to go with Belgard Glocal porcelain pavers.
Very few people go with this kind of decking. I've got 1500+ sq feet of it that I want to put in so I'm kind of nervous. 3x3 or 4x4 in size. Big porcelain blocks.
Out here concrete pours crack so badly I want to avoid that. Additionally my back yard space is tight, so I want the option of removing the pavers if I have a leak. Cutting concrete seems awful.

I'm looking at these at a solution to my cracking and settling 40 year old concrete patio. There's a number of ways to install them. Floating over stone & sand, mortared to concrete, support with plastic feet/pillars. I would want to know what approach would be used.

Whats the cost per SF, materials and labor, to have them put in?
