Identifying the Size of Hole to be Drilled. The first step is to correctly identify the size of hole to be drilled. This is very important as the diameter of the hole to be cut dictates the method that you will use to drill into the tile. The majority of holes that are 10mm and under in diameter will be drilled with the tile already fixed to the wall. Conversely the majority of holes over 10mm in diameter will be drilled into the tile before the tile has been fixed. When drilling holes that are 13mm or larger in diameter make sure that the tile to be drilled is placed in a tray that will collect the waste water that is produced.
Application of tiles are rated according to the Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI) rating system from PEI Class 1 up to PEI Class 5. If you are looking for the right tiles to be used for your walls or ceiling the PEI Class 1 is recommended because the tiles are not exposed to any impact. You can choose the PEI Classes 2 and 3 for your bathroom tiles and the PEI Classes 3 to 5 as kitchen and tabletops and as flooring in any part of your home or building according to the impact foot traffic or exposure of the area where you will install your porcelain tiles.
For the easiest to clean and maintain floors ceramic and porcelain tiles seem to make the most sense. In theory the specifications regarding porcelain tiles make them vastly superior to ceramic tile. The specifications state that porcelain tiles are harder and more scratch resistant than ceramic. Porcelain is supposed to be denser and less porous then ceramic. Many people like the idea that some porcelain tiles are through body where the entire porcelain tile is the exact same color and texture as the surface.
You can never go wrong when you choose ceramic porcelain tiles for your home finishing. They are not only durable and practical porcelain tiles can transform an otherwise ordinary home into a lovely abode. Fabric cross-stitch patterns work very well in the home or office decors! The light and the shadow beside the 3D patterns are breathtaking. Otherwise, fabric often faces problems like dirt and may be difficult to maintain clean.
