Porcelain tile is similar to ceramic tile, the key difference is how they are made.The white clay used to make porcelain tile is finer, denser, and fired at a much higher temperature than the red, brown, or white clay used for ceramic tiles. This makes porcelain harder, denser, and less porous than its ceramic counterpart, resulting in porcelain tile being more resistant to scuffs, scratches, and abrasions.
Porcelain tile can be used in all the same places that ceramic tile can be used. It can be maintained the same way as well. One of the biggest benefits of porcelain tile is that the color is the same throughout the entire tile. Since it's not simply a surface color, the color will never change even if the tile becomes worn down.
Another benefit of porcelain tile is that it can be manufactured to look just like natural stone. The price tag, however, is much lower with porcelain than it is with natural stone, making it a more affordable choice.
Porcelain tile can greatly increase the value of a home once it's installed.
There are a variety of tile options to choose from - mosaics, terracotta, ceramic, glass, porcelain, and metal - and that's just a few of the choices that we carry. And because you can mix and match tile for a custom pattern to suit your style, the design options are endless.
