Why Choose Ceramic Tile?
This is where durability meets versatility
Ceramic tile flooring is a versatile method or resource that has been applied in construction for many years now. Ceramic tiles are known for their incredible durability. Ceramic tile flooring can be done in a variety of environments without worrying about the constraints of design, water or even stains. Here are the top 5 reasons you should consider ceramic tile flooring for your home.
1. Water resistance
The glazed tiles are made with a protective layer on their surface to make them impermeable by water and stains. This makes them highly reliable in moist environments such as the bathroom, laundry area and kitchen.
However, the unglazed ceramic flooring tiles don’t have a protective layer and therefore need to be well sealed to protect their surface from liquids. Grout lines in between the lines also need to be well sealed to make them impervious to water seepage.
Ceramic tiles are the real deal when it comes to durability. They are extremely tough and difficult to crack, unless hit with a tough object. And if by chance a single tile does crack, the process of replacing it is relatively easy and fast.
3. Easy to maintain
Ceramic tile flooring is relatively easy to maintain as compared to other forms of flooring. Dirt, stains and liquid spills rest on the surface of the tile, making it easy for you to sweep or mop them away. With ceramic flooring, all you need for maintenance is a broom or vacuum cleaner to regularly sweep or vacuum the floor’s surface. Plus, if a tough stain resists an easy sweep-off, you can comfortably use a heavy-duty cleaner without worrying about causing damage to your floor.
4. Numerous design options
Manufacturers of ceramic tiles have adopted modern ways of manufacturing the product by printing it in numerous ways/designs. Ceramic flooring tiles can come with different patterns, color, and even surface texture. They can be produced to replicate the look of hardwood or other natural stones. They can also be cut and shaped into different designs, say circles, triangles, and even planks.
5. Average pricing
Ceramic tile flooring is relatively inexpensive compared to other flooring methods such as hardwood flooring. Most tiles will range between $5 and $10 per square foot.
