Porcelain tile is made from fired clay. Similar to ceramic tile, porcelain tile is more durable, denser, and more water-resistant. It’s a popular flooring choice in the Clearwater, East Lake, New Port Richey, Oldsmar, Palm Harbor, Port Richey, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Trinity areas due to its sophisticated look and longevity. Certain porcelain tiles can mimic natural stone like granite and marble. Read below to see if porcelain tile is right for your Florida home!
Benefits of Porcelain Tile
- Porcelain is one of the most durable flooring options available. It is very resistant to scratches and dents and can withstand fire, stains, odor, and moisture.
- It is a very low maintenance flooring choice. All it needs is regular sweeping, vacuuming, and/or mopping. Remember to avoid tools like steel wool on your tile.
- Porcelain is available in a wide variety of different textures, shapes, colors, designs, and more. This gives homeowners the ability to truly customize their home.
- Porcelain is a mid-range priced tile option. While it’s more expensive than ceramic, it’s cheaper than natural stone options such as granite.
