What is porcelain tile?

One of the first questions you might have is what exactly is porcelain tile? We’re happy to tell you that this flooring is created using quality clays that are then formed into tiles, fired at very high kiln temperatures, and usually glazed with a protective top coat. Because of this process, porcelain has a great many benefits that you are simply going to love!

Porcelain is very hard, thanks to the kiln temperatures attained during firing, and incredibly dense as well. This makes it very resistant to both water and stains, one of the main reasons it is chosen for kitchens and bathrooms. In addition, it also resists odors and bacteria, which also makes it a hypoallergenic flooring choice.

You’ll also find that this material is much harder to scratch than many others are, it is resistant to fire, and can also stand up to heavy traffic levels. Most homeowners are also happy with how easily the flooring cleans up. All you really need to do is wipe up spills and sweep regularly. A damp mop usually finishes the job off perfectly.

Important porcelain tile considerations

Probably the most important thing to know about porcelain tile is that you should use a professional installer. Considering the price per square foot and the fact that they can easily be cracked, chipped or broken during installation, this is certainly not the material for an amateur installation.
