Porcelain & Ceramic FAQs
A floor covering of any kind is a significant investment for your home, and we know you have questions about the materials you are considering for the task. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions, along with their answers, to help you along your way.
Frequently asked questions about porcelain & ceramic tile
What’s the difference between porcelain & ceramic floor tile?
Porcelain is made only of high-quality clay, while ceramic consists of the same high-quality clay and other natural materials. Both are fired in a very hot kiln, creating dense, hard tiles that work well in various spaces, especially bathrooms and kitchens.
Can porcelain tile be installed outside?
Porcelain is an ideal material for outdoor uses like patios and pool areas. Not only is it weather-resistant, even to freezing temperatures, but you can take advantage of large format tiles and slip-resistant coatings for a beautiful experience in these areas.
Does tile flooring require a professional installation?
Yes. Unless you have previous experience or training as a tile installer, this task is better left to the professionals. Precision measurements, cutting, and placement are requirements for a satisfactory result and can help ensure that your warranty is not voided in the process.
