Ceramic Tile Types

Ceramic tile is made from a mixture of clays and other materials, then kiln-fired. The processes and materials that go into making ceramic tiles can be varied to produce tiles with different properties and a diverse range of styles.

HARDNESS
Thickness, composition of the tile, and the temperature and duration of firing determine its strength. Check the tile hardness rating to determine whether the tile you are considering is appropriate for a particular location and foot traffic.

GLAZED
After the ceramic tiles are fired, a thin coat of liquefied glass is applied over the top surface. The glass is what makes glazed tiles so highly moisture and stain resistant and what gives them their colour. The majority of homeowners have glazed ceramic tiles in their home.

UNGLAZED
Unglazed ceramic tiles, while not as stain resistant as glazed tiles, are not as slippery. This is one of the reasons why they are a better choice in certain situations. Unglazed ceramic tiles are preferable to glazed tiles in many outdoor settings because their rough texture makes them highly slip resistant.

PORCELAIN
Porcelain tiles are a higher quality and more resistant to damage, since they’re fired in a kiln at higher temperatures and made of less porous materials. (The photo is kitchen porcelain)

The Benefits of Ceramic Tile

DURABLE
Ceramic tiles have a much longer life in comparison to other materials that are used to cover floors and walls. Ceramic tile flooring can withstand high foot traffic without suffering damage or wearing down.

DESIGN OPTIONS
An array of colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes is available. Tiles can also be laid out to create different patterns.

COLOR PERMANENCE
Flooring is exposed to a numerous amount of materials ranging from chemicals to sunlight. Ceramic tiles have great color permanence and will not lose their color or begin to fade.
