Quality ceramic tiles are made from natural porous clay material, which is then fired in a kiln at high temperature to generate hard-wearing ceramic material. The firing process creates the hard, shiny surface that you often see in porcelain tile work, granite tile work and stainless steel tile work. Ceramic tiles will have a slightly different look when they are fully fired, due to the gradual change of color of the clay that creates the texture in the tumbled material. Generally, porcelain and marble tiles will retain their color and luster for about two years, after which they will darken to a grayish color. Porcelain and marble tiles that have been fired in a low temperature oven will often retain their original color for many years longer than ceramic tiles that have been fired in a high temperature kiln.

How to Choose Quality Ceramic Tile Is Important To Your Home Or Business

Quality ceramic

When choosing tiles for your bathroom, kitchen or any other room in your home, it’s very important to choose a high quality ceramic tile with the correct tumbling action. A professional installation will be able to advise you as to which tiles will be suitable for your application, what the recommended temperature for installation is and will be able to show you examples of porcelain tiles that have been used in your room or application. If you’re not certain of how your chosen tile should look in your new tiled area, there are several companies who offer a designer service where the installation is supervised by a professional. If you decide to go down the route of a professional installation, always remember to include a few extra tiles to make your new ceramic floor or wall look even better!

Ceramic tile is a great choice for any room in the home because it is resistant to moisture, stains and spills. However, if you choose a non-porous tile, like porcelain, you’re not completely protecting your investment from moisture because the porous material is permeable. Porcelain tile that is properly sealed will be impermeable to most spills but the color will not hold up under prolonged exposure. This type of tile will also crack under high pressure and heat so it’s recommended that you apply high quality sealing wax to protect your investment.
