What is the Difference Between Ceramic and Porcelain Tile?

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are constructed differently. Both are made of water and clay, but porcelain contains denser clay minerals like quartz and feldspar, and as a result are more dense and less porous as a result. Because porcelain is less porous, it’s more durable. It’s less likely to chip, and it can even handle the freeze/thaw conditions of the outdoors. Porcelain can also have a through body color, meaning the top layer of the tile matches the body of the tile, or a color body, which means the body of the tile closely matches the color of the surface design.

What's the Difference Between Floor Tile and Wall Tile?

Floor tile is made to be thick and sturdy so it can withstand foot traffic. Meanwhile, wall tile is thinner and lighter for easier installation. Some floor tiles can be installed on walls, depending on the size and weight, though you should consult a professional before choosing to install floor tile on your walls.

Is Tile Waterproof?

Contrary to popular belief, ceramic tile and grout, by themselves are not waterproof. Water can penetrate through cement-based grout and work its way through the substrate. Glazed tile is water-resistant when installed properly, meaning they can withstand a splash or quick accidental drop in water. For use in high-moisture areas like bathtubs, showers, and around pools, you will need to check with a Tiling professional.

What are the Pros of Tile?

  • Hypoallergenic
A perfect choice for those who suffer from allergies, tile is not host to mold, germs, dust mites, or bacteria. Less chemical requirements for cleaning and surface maintenance translate to less indoor environmental impact.
  • Durable
Impact resistant, and difficult to abuse or scratch compared to other coverings, a tiled surface will not need replacing anytime soon. Porcelain tile is made of dense clay and put through a firing process which renders it harder than granite! There is no need for cutting boards or pot holders to protect tile countertops from damage. Even floors in high-traffic areas are no match for the durability of tile when properly installed. Properly installed, tile can last a lifetime.
  • Green
Tile is a choice you can feel good about. Ceramic and porcelain tile do not emit VOCs and are created with naturally occurring clay and minerals that are heated to high temperatures, and contribute to its long life span.
  • Low Maintenance
One of the many advantages of tile is how easy it is to keep clean. There is no need for harsh detergents, powders, or chemical cleaners. Tile does not require repetitive sealing either. An installation of tile will mean simple maintenance for the lifetime of the application.

Trend, design, and options! From ultra-modern to rustic to traditional, there is a style of tile available for all tastes. With so many color, texture, and shape options, tile makes it easy for you to unleash your creativity in any room, inside or out. Versatility is truly the cornerstone of tile.
