Benefits of Tile

Tile is a versatile and practical choice for both flooring and walls in various areas of the home, such as the bathroom and kitchen. Its durability and resistance to moisture make it ideal for spaces prone to spills and splashes. In bathrooms, tile not only provides a waterproof surface but also adds visual appeal with endless design options. Whether used for floors or backsplashes, kitchen tile offers easy cleanup and can withstand the rigors of cooking and meal prep. Shower tile, specifically designed to handle constant exposure to water, ensures a long-lasting and hygienic surface.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tile

Porcelain tile flooring is denser than ceramic tiles, offering an extremely durable surface that is impervious to water and has color embedded within the actual tile. Made from similar material as ceramic tile, porcelain tile is fired in a furnace at much higher temperatures. As a result, porcelain requires very little maintenance and can be used almost anywhere indoors or outside.

Grout lines are the spaces between tiles that are filled with a mixture of water, sand, and cement-like material or epoxy. It’s crucial to clean visible grout lines, or a tile floor will not appear as clean as it should. Cleaning the grout regularly will also prevent the growth of mold or mildew.

Ceramic tile is a longstanding waterproof option that can be used for floors, walls, counters, backsplashes, showers, and mosaics in moisture-prone areas. Different tile flooring styles will offer varying levels of slip resistance, so look for this quality when shopping for bathroom tile. For more incredible defense against water, keep grout lines smaller when installing tile floors.

No, you can find tiles in almost every shape you can imagine! From squares and rectangles to hexagons, diamonds, circles, and ovals, tile comes in different shapes and sizes, from tiny to large format tile. You can create mixed-size patterned designs to create truly one-of-a-kind visuals. Custom layouts will take extra planning but will add impressive, upscale appeal.

Tile is rated for both strength and porosity. The tile rating for strength indicates how the tile can be used, and the tile rating for porosity indicates the absorbency level. The greater the strength rating, the more applications that tile can be used for. The greater the porosity rating, the better suited the tile is for direct water exposure. Higher-rated tile will be more expensive to purchase. You can learn more about strength and PEI rating for tile today.
