Porcelain Tile / August 29, 2018 / Brousseau
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.
Porcelain tile and ceramic tile both start off the same being composed of more or less the same materials such as clay and quartz. After formation they are both fired to high temperatures. What spells out the difference between the ceramic white tile and porcelain tile is that the latter uses a more highly refined and purified clay making the porcelain tile denser than the other tile. This is an extremely important difference since being more dense means that porcelain tile absorbs far less moisture making it both durable and stain resistant.
These methods will not keep the drill bits cool enough and will drastically shorten the life of the drill bit. Ensure that the drill is in normal mode and set the drill to between 1000 and 1500 rpm. If you have marked the tile with a marker it is best to drill into the tile using a method called leaning in. Leaning in ensures that the drill will not slip and wander off center as you begin to drill into the tile.
