Porcelain Tiles

New Hampshire Porcelain Tiles

When it comes to the kind of porcelain used in flooring and wall tiles, we can assure you it’s quite different from delicate porcelain dolls and teacups. In fact, porcelain is one of the toughest and most durable flooring materials available and it has the added benefit of coming in a range of gorgeous patterns and colors. In rooms where strength is needed, we highly suggest choosing from our selection of porcelain tile options to keep your floors safe and looking beautiful.

How are Porcelain Tiles Made?

What exactly makes porcelain different from other tiling options like ceramic? Porcelain is created by mixing fine clays and minerals and firing the product at extremely high temperatures. This results in a denser, harder, highly uniform, and non-porous end-product. Depending on the desired look and style, porcelain tiles can be unglazed or glazed which adds to their durability.

Choosing Porcelain for Residential

So, you’ve decided it’s time to redo your kitchen, update your bathrooms, or give your mudroom a facelift in your New Hampshire home. Remodeling is exciting! But let’s be honest, you want this to be a once and done project. You need a flooring option that will last a lifetime and continue looking brand new long after your family has trampled over them and spilled plenty of drinks.

You’ve turned to tile for its ease of cleaning and versatility in design, a popular choice for high traffic areas of the home. But the decisions don’t stop there. Tiles can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, natural stone, glass, and metal. It’s difficult to know which selection will suit your New Hampshire home best.

There are a few key benefits that set porcelain apart from its other tiling counterparts.

  • Durability: These tiles are known to last for years in excellent condition. Their construction makes them naturally resistant to scratching, chipping, and breaking—a perfect solution for a highly active family or rowdy pets.
  • Low Maintenance: In addition to strength, porcelain is also stain-resistant and simple to clean. Unlike other tiles, they don’t require special sealing to keep moisture out and can easily be wiped clean from any messes and spills.
  • Heat Resistant: After being fired at high temperatures, porcelain becomes fortified against heat. This makes porcelain tiles a perfect option if you’re considering adding radiant heating to your floors.
  • Beauty: Made from high quality components, porcelain tiles can truly transform your space into a place of luxury. They come in a wide range of styles that can mimic the look of stone or marble and suit any design vision you have.

Porcelain tiles range in price depending on both the style chosen and the work needed for professional installation.
