Is there a difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles?

The truth is, there is no significant difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles. But there are plenty of similarities between the two. If you read along here, you'll find some information that could help you make the best choice when deciding between these two. Read ahead to find out more information on ceramic and porcelain tiles.

Porcelain and ceramic tiles can do it all

Whether you choose porcelain or ceramic tiles, you'll find they are very similar across the board. Porcelain is fired at much higher temperatures than ceramic, which results in materials that are a bit harder, denser, and more impervious to water. Under most circumstances, however, you'll find they work similarly in your home, especially where pets and children play.

For stunning visual appeal, you can't fail by choosing tile, with appearances that vary so widely, you'll want to see them. Some products mimic natural materials like stone and wood, while others provide vast designs, patterns, colors, and more. No matter what décor you have in place, you're sure to find the perfect flooring match when you choose porcelain or ceramic tile.

Durability is very similar, as these products work well at resisting stains, scuffs, chips, cracks, and fading. But they also inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria for a fresher, cleaner experience that is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and children's rooms. The durability is why these floors can easily last more than 50 years when professionally installed and regularly maintained, so be sure to contact us to get the remodel underway.
