Ceramic & porcelain facts

One of the first characteristics that come to mind when ceramic & porcelain tile is mentioned is the water resistance they offer. It’s important to note that because of manufacturing techniques and materials, porcelain is a bit more impervious to water than ceramic is. Both can be an excellent addition to kitchens, bathroom, foyers, or any other space where moisture and spills are expected. At the same time, it can be a good idea to use this flooring for all your spaces, since you never really know when an accident will occur.

If you intend to use tile flooring in outside spaces, porcelain is a better option than ceramic. When used in patios and pool areas, for example, porcelain does an excellent job of withstanding the elements and temperatures, as well as rain and dampness.

Both ceramic & porcelain offer excellent durability and life span. They work very well under the duress of heavy activity and last about 40 to 50 years with proper care and maintenance. It’s very important, especially with porcelain, to make sure to enlist the services of a professional installation team. With special tools and plenty of experience, they can finish a successful installation of ceramic & porcelain quickly and easily.
