Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
The installation of porcelain tile is becoming an increasingly regular task for the modern day tiler. Customers desire the look of natural stone but require the extra durability that porcelain tiles offer. With porcelain tiles being non-porous (impervious to water) and virtually maintenance free they are the perfect solution for the progressively popular wet-room styled bathrooms. Your ceramic white tile will look lovely at first but it wont be long before day-to-day dirt gets ingrained and its permanently dingy.
Because the majority of small diameter holes will be cut into tiles already fixed to the wall it will be necessary to drill a fixing hole behind the tile. Replace the carbide drill bit with the appropriately sized masonry drill bit and set the drill to hammer mode. Use a slow speed for drilling into hard materials to ensure that the tip doesnt overheat. Ensure that the drill bit is frequently withdrawn in order to stop a build up of dust.

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.
