The benefits of ceramic & porcelain

If you’re looking for durability, ceramic & porcelain should definitely be on your list. Made of all natural materials, both of these floor coverings can last about fifty years or more, especially if properly cared for and maintained. Be sure to ask your flooring professional about hardness and waterproof ratings in regard to your own specific needs. Getting the perfect flooring for the type of everyday wear and tear your home will put forth, is the easiest way to get the best performance.

Porcelain tile is a bit harder than ceramic, as it’s fired at hotter temperatures, and it stands up against water a bit better as well. While ceramic is both hard and water resistant, porcelain tops it by just a bit. Porcelain is often the choice for homeowners who want a more natural look. It also has a through-body color scheme, which means that it’s much less likely to show scratches, cracks, and breaks in the tile.

Ceramic flooring doesn’t have the same through-body color, so it is usually covered with brightly colored glazesThis is perfect for the homeowner looking for the perfect flooring material with which to decorate. Thanks to the many colors, designs, and styles, the sky is literally the limit when it comes to decorating with ceramic. You can even choose to have the tiles cut in different shapes to create truly unique designs, just for your own home. You can even embellish with wall and counter tiles, to complete the look.
