Here are 4 benefits of choosing porcelain tiles for your home.

October 5, 2021

Tiles are a stylish and practical choice for any home, and porcelain tiles are the hardest working member of the ceramic tile family.

Porcelain says no to bacteria!

Porcelain tile resists bacteria growth which is one of the first steps towards a healthy home environment. It also won't absorb dirt, dust mites, pollen, fungi, mould or other irritants, which is really important for asthma or allergy sufferers.

Like water off a duck's back

Porcelain tile is typically referred to as 'impervious' to moisture. This means its absorption rate is equal to or less than 0.5%, making porcelain the most water-resistant type of ceramic tile - great in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.

Stains don't stand a chance

These water-resistant qualities also make porcelain tiles easy to clean and stain resistant (always a good quality in a tile!).  Any spills, splashes or stains can be cleaned up quickly and easily.

Summer survival skills

Porcelain tiles have their colour baked into the tile, making it permanent. This means that it won't fade, even in direct sunlight

A tile is only as good as the person who lays it, so always make sure that you use an experienced professional to enjoy all the benefits of your porcelain tiles.
