Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles from XLT Construction Inc.
Whether it’s a new year’s resolution or something that you have been putting off for far too long, there is never a bad time to renovate your business location with a new tiled wall or floor scheme. However, the questions don’t stop just because you have made this important decision. In fact, there is many more to consider. Perhaps, the most important in this respect is what type of tile to choose from.
The simple fact of the matter is that whether you are renovating a commercial property or building from scratch, you will want to select a floor or wall tile that is both extremely durable but also aesthetically pleasing. Two tile types that check both of these boxes are ceramic and porcelain. The advantages and disadvantages of each type is outlined below:
Ceramic: Created from a mixture of clays, ceramic is the tough and durable option that is high in quality but low in price and maintenance. Ceramic tiles can either be glazed or unglazed. The glazed option offers added protection and also enhances the non-porous nature of the tile significantly. If there is one drawback of ceramic tiles in commercial locations it is that, on occasion, it can become chipped and can become slippery if wet.
Porcelain: In contrast to ceramic tiles, porcelain is highly resistant to water and is also frost resistant, making it ideal for companies in harsh winter climates.
