What are ceramic tiles?
This term is often used generically for all types of tiles. True ceramic tiles are made of clay, mixed with other minerals and water which is then subjected to a heat process to create a solidified product. The top surface is treated with a glaze which becomes the design layer making the ceramic tile very waterproof. Long lasting Quality-glazed ceramic tiles when correctly installed will last longer than any other non-tile material. When coated with a Grade III or better glaze, the surface is highly resistant to scratching and to moisture penetration.
Water-resistant and installation benefits.
Resistant material Along with being one of the easiest surfaces to clean, ceramic tiles do not absorb odours or when they are cleaned, they do not provide a place for allergens or bacteria to develop. Quality finished ceramic tiles will not burn, emit any toxic fumes or even become scorched in the event of a fire. Installing ceramic over porcelain tiles Ceramic tiles are easier to install taking into account the requirement of more specialised tools needed for cutting porcelain tiles. Correct cutting and shaping of porcelain tiles and their requiring an experienced tile fitter to complete this task make ceramic tiles a better option for the average DIY enthusiast.
