What’s the difference between Porcelain Tile and Ceramic Tile?

Porcelain is a type of ceramic made from finer clay and minerals that is fired at higher temperatures. This results in a denser, harder tile that is more resistant to stains, water and scratches. Thirty percent harder than ceramic tile, porcelain tile will withstand years of heavy foot traffic while maintaining its color and beauty. Like all ceramics, porcelain tiles are available in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Design and Installation

With tile, the design possibilities are truly endless. You can select bold colors or neutrals, mix sizes and shapes, create patterns or take advantage of tile’s natural variations. Our design consultants can help you achieve the effect you want. We also offer the services of experienced in-house installers.
