These tiles are hard and non-porous, which makes them the perfect addition to any bathroom. Porcelain tile flooring is easy to clean and is scratch resistant, which mean you won't have a worn out floor ever. They can withstand exposure to heat as well as freezing temperatures, so every time you turn on that hot shower you won't be spoiling the tiles. When selecting porcelain tile flooring, it is important to consider the class and category of porcelain since it is available in different qualities. You may be probably overwhelmed by the options. These tiles are classified as in natural, glazed, and polished tiles. With so many brands to choose from, you may find a variation in price. However, you ought to choose the best quality porcelain tile flooring that fits within your budget.
But the misinformation continues. The Porcelain Enamel Institute rates glazed floor tiles as to their resistance to abrasion. Glazed tiles are those to which a decorative layer has been applied over the clay body of the tile. Glazes are rated 1 through 5 with 5 being the highest or most durable grade. Many, if not most, porcelain tiles are not glazed, yet ask your tile sales person about the PEI rating of the porcelain tile you are examining in the showroom. It's very likely you'll hear something like, ”Oh, this is a grade 5 porcelain tile. You could lay this baby in a car factory.” I certainly don't aim to demean tile sales people. We need them and love them. Without them we'd be out of work. I do wish they'd get themselves a little better informed, though, so they can better inform the buying public about the virtues of ALL ceramic tiles.
