Tile flooring in a Calgary, AB master bathroom

Are porcelain and ceramic tile good for Calgary homes?

Tile flooring, especially in Calgary homes, is a pleasure to use in every room, with stunning visuals, outstanding performance, and a lifespan that means you may never have to replace your floors. But today, we will talk about whether you can use both porcelain and ceramic on your floors, so follow along for that information.

For ceramic and porcelain tiles, here?s what you need to know

Porcelain tiles are easily the best product to use in flooring as they are denser, harder, and more durable than ceramic, but only by a small margin. They use high-quality materials and are fired in the hottest kilns, so the results hold up very well under pressure.

However, ceramic floor tiles are also used with great success, but you must be sure to differentiate between the flooring tile and the products used for wall accents, backsplashes, or countertops. Flooring tiles are created to offer more durability and can even be covered with a slip-resistant coating, making them safer for installation in bathrooms and basements.

If you?re ready to choose the perfect porcelain or ceramic tiles, be sure to visit us when you're in the area. We look forward to helping you build an ideal floor covering, no matter how large or small the remodel.
