Tile is a general term for three basic types – Ceramic, Porcelain, and Natural Stone.
Ceramic Tile: Ceramic tile is a natural product made up of clay, minerals, and water. Ceramic tile comes in two forms – glazed and unglazed.
Porcelain Tile: They are denser and less porous than ceramic tile and highly resistant to moisture, stains, bacteria, odors, and even harsh cleaners. For homeowners, porcelain tile is especially resistant to staining, scratches, and fading and is available in both polished and matte finishes. Porcelain tiles also come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and textures.
Natural Stone Tiles: These are products cut from solid stone blocks from stone quarries around the world. For this reason no two pieces are exactly the same. A variety of sizes are available. Natural stone offers magnificent potential for use on floors or walls that will remain durable and aesthetically pleasing for a lifetime.
