Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
There can be many quality issues regarding porcelain tiles that are sold at home improvement stores and discount tile stores. Many times these tiles are cheap imports that are vastly inferior with many quality control issues. Unwitting people thinking they are purchasing quality tiles that are superior to ceramic when in fact they are extremely cheap. These cheap tiles can present many problems in quality durability and they can be extremely difficult to clean and maintain.
In choosing your tiles do not get confused with the terms non-porcelain and ceramic tiles because although technically porcelain is a kind of ceramic ware the term ceramic tile is usually referred to as non-porcelain. These tiles are hard and non-porous and absorb very minimal water as compared to ceramic tiles which are softer and have high water absorption. Porcelain tiles are highly durable because they can resist abrasions unlike ceramic tiles that are prone to chipping and scratches.
Are you building your new home? Or are have you grown tired of your marble flooring or the chip on your wall paper or the drab of your wooden panels? It is time to switch or consider porcelain tiles. These tiles not only brighten up your home they are durable and almost maintenance free. You can choose from the wide selection of perfect porcelain tile designs for your home.
