Why Choose Porcelain Tile

Posted on Posted in blog


Clay based tiles are a perfect choice for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements and more. They are extremely durable, very stain resistant and easy to care for. They come in a large variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Whatever tile you choose, glossy finishes have a tendency to show finger- and footprints and can be slippery when wet. For better traction choose a honed finish.


Generally, porcelain tile is harder than ceramic tile, and it offers a wide variety of design possibilities. Both of them are made out of clay and other natural materials, but the clay used to make porcelain tiles is more refined. It is also fired at a higher temperature than ceramic, making it dense and a harder material.
Porcelain tile is an ideal fit for cold-weather climates where there is a concern for freezing and thawing. Because of the higher temperature that it’s fired at, it’s moisture adoption rate is less than .5%, making it less likely to crack and more impervious to stains.
Porcelain tile also offers advantages when it comes to design. Due to its strong nature, many sizes are available ranging from 1x1 to 24x48.
