Homeowners searching for the perfect tile flooring often come down to porcelain vs. ceramic tile as they search for the best products for their home. There are many questions for these materials, and we want to answer a few of those for you today.

If you have more questions, feel free to contact us for more detailed information. We look forward to answering them all.

What should I look for in a great porcelain tile flooring?

It’s essential to check the class, which ranks products according to abrasion and scratch resistance, and more. Look for a color that fits your design scheme, absorbency ratings, and other preferential standards such as glazed or unglazed and hardness.

When it comes to porcelain vs. ceramic tile, which is more durable?

Because of porcelain tile manufacturing, it is a bit harder, denser, and more waterproof than ceramic. However, both often carry out the same functions in a residential setting. As far as performance is concerned, the differences between the two are usually most notable in a commercial location where extreme durability is often called for and required.

Can you install tile flooring without grout?

We understand that the grouting process adds a great deal of time to your installation process, but we strongly advise against a groutless tile installation. Grout ensures less chance of breakage and prevents liquids and allergens from becoming lodged between the tiles.

How often should I clean my tile and grout?

Every home has different levels of traffic and activity and various factors that could change the cleaning schedule for these materials. A good rule of thumb is to sweep and damp mop daily, clean spills as soon as they happen, and always be on the lookout for mold, mildew, and stains.
