Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
The polished porcelain on the other hand goes through a more refined process and comes out looking almost like a granite finish or has a glossy effect without the glaze. In choosing the perfect ceramic porcelain tiles for your finishing you must know the colour combination or contrast in the areas where you will install the tiles and the kind of exposure the tiles may be subjected to. You may discuss these with your architect or interior designer or you may refer to our website and get in touch with us so we can assist you the best way we can.
For your walls or ceiling the PEI Class 1 porcelain tiles are recommended because they are not subjected to any kind of weight. The PEI Class 2 may be used as bathroom floor tiles where the weight exposure is minimal while the PEI Classes 3 and 4 are ideal as table top or kitchen top and as flooring in any part of your home. The PEI Class 5 is highly recommended for residential or commercial use where there is heavy foot traffic. Porcelain tiles are all weather tiles that can withstand heat exposure during the summer and the freezing temperatures during winter.
