To the untrained eye, porcelain and ceramic tiles may seem to be the same thing. They are similar in appearance and nature. Some homeowners don’t think there is much of a difference between the two. However, there are enough differences that one may serve your needs over the other. So it’s important to talk to our trained and qualified staff to talk about your expectations and needs and how they can be met with tile.
Porcelain is made of high-quality clay before it is fired in hot kilns to produce the density and hardness that one expects from it. The clay can hide chips and cracks if they happen and also provide durable material that is hard and hard to crack in the first place.The clay is then glazed with a clear coat, letting the beauty and patterns show through the glaze.
Ceramic tiles are made with the same clay, but there are additional natural materials added. You still get a dense and durable material once it goes through the fire, but there is no through body color. It is then glazed in a liquid glass that helps you create any appearance you desire.
