All of these characteristics seem to make porcelain the clear choice when it comes to quality, durability and easy of cleaning and maintenance. In reality the truth can be vastly different. The specifications regarding porcelain tiles are never verified or tested so any manufacturer can claim that their tiles are porcelain. Tile manufacturers can claim that they are manufacturing porcelain tiles without having them tested. In many cases tiles labeled as porcelain do not have the characteristics that make them quality tiles. There can be many quality issues regarding porcelain tiles that are sold at home improvement stores and discount tile stores. Many times these tiles are cheap imports that are vastly inferior with many quality control issues. Unwitting people thinking they are purchasing quality tiles that are superior to ceramic when in fact they are extremely cheap. These cheap tiles can present many problems in quality, durability and they can be extremely difficult to clean and maintain.
The main difference between these two popular types of tiles is the way in which they are made. Ceramic tiles are usually made using white or red clay. There are moulded into the desired shape and then places into a clay oven. Next they are coated with a glaze, which helps lock in any pattern or colour that has been placed on the tile. As ceramic tiles are made from a soft clay material, they are typically much easier to cut, so are perfect if you think you will need to alter the size of tiles due to uneven lines or tricky spots to be tiled.
