Ceramic tile

Ceramic tile flooring is best known for its durability. Tiles are made of clay that has been shaped and then fired in a kiln. Ceramic is very tough, and therefore, difficult to crack. Glazed ceramic repels water, scratches, and stains. Also, the flat surface doesn't attract or harbor dust, germs, or pollen so the flooring promotes a healthy environment. Floors are easy to keep clean with a damp mop, and spills can be quickly wiped up with a sponge. Shaw, Mohawk, Armstrong, and Daltile are some of the companies that manufacture high quality ceramic tile brands.


Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is harder and denser. It’s also more brittle so it takes more skill to cut and install it. Porcelain is the most durable type of tile on the market. It’s inherently waterproof and appropriate for outdoor use in mild climates. While ceramic tiles tend to be a solid color or pattern, porcelain tiles can show off colorful designs or mimic other materials like stone and wood. Any type of ceramic tile is installed by first placing a layer of cement board over the wood subfloor. Then the tiles are glued down and joined together with grout. A cement board is not needed on a cement subfloor.
