Ceramic tile is durable and long-lasting

Ceramic tile is made of clay and other natural products. Each tile is molded into shape and fired in a kiln. This durable flooring is popular for kitchens and bathrooms, and it’s great for entryways and sunrooms too. With hundreds of designs available, it’s easy to find a brand that looks great in your home. You can browse through samples at Carpet Outlet Of Shelby County.

Benefits of ceramic

Ceramic is durable and long-lasting. Generally, this type of flooring is glazed after it's installed, making it impervious to water. Ceramic is abrasion-resistant, stain-resistant, slip-resistant, and fireproof. It is highly resistant to harsh chemicals that are found in the home so there is no damage to the floor if a spill occurs. It does not fade or change when exposed to direct sunlight. Also, it does not absorb odors, fumes, or smoke or harbor allergens or dirt. Most often, ceramic tile is a solid color. This type of easy-to-clean flooring is great for active households, especially those that include pets. Mohawk, Shaw, Daltile, and American Olean are some of the companies that produce high-quality ceramic tile. Expect a floor to last 75 to 100 years if it is properly maintained.

Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic tile. The range of colors, sizes, shapes, finishes, and textures makes porcelain an attractive flooring choice. Some porcelain designs closely mimic natural stone like marble, slate, and travertine. Other designs imitate wood grains. Porcelain is more dense and heavy than ceramic, and it's inherently impervious to water. Like ceramic, it can be used on countertops to match a kitchen floor because it has good resistance to heat. This floor covering can be used outdoors in regions with mild climates. Porcelain is more brittle than ceramic, and therefore, an installation by an experienced tile-setter is best. Tile is attached to the subfloor with adhesive, and grout is used to bond the tile together.
