While we have several styles of traditional ceramic tile available, we highly recommend porcelain ceramic tiles for most applications because of its superior hardness and durability.

Tile - Product Knowledge

Porcelain tile is made with special clays and minerals that are compressed and then kiln-fired at temperatures that can exceed 2400 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, porcelain is both harder and denser than other tile products. Additionally, porcelain is frost-proof as well as highly stain-, scratch- and water-resistant.

Porcelain tile offers other advantages, as well:
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What is the difference between Porcelain Tile and Ceramic Tile?
A.
Porcelain tile is more scratch resistant than ceramic tile. Porcelain is made from a finer, more dense clay, which is compressed before firing, resulting in a more dense, harder body. Also, porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures than ceramic, resulting in superior durability and stain resistance.
Q. How do I care for my Porcelain Tile floor?
A.
Porcelain tile is stain-resistant requiring minimal maintenance. Simply wipe up spills with a damp cloth or sponge. Regular cleaning with clear water or a mild detergent is recommended.
Q. What is Shade Variation?
A.
Any variation in color or texture from tile to tile. Many tiles have a high shade variation, giving it a more natural appearance. While no two tiles may match each other, the combination of many varying tiles creates a beautiful, unified whole.
Q. What is a Moh?
A.
A Moh is a scale of hardness developed by the German mineralogist Fredrich Mohs. The scale ranges from 1 (talc) to 10 (diamond). When applied to porcelain tile, it denotes the tile's scratch resistance. Typical values for porcelain tiles range between 5 and 8 Mohs.
