Ceramic Tile Surfaces
About Ceramic Surfaces
Tiles that are made by shaping a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, and then fired at a high temperature, which gives the tile its hardness. The most common type is glazed ceramic tiles made by applying liquid glass to the body of the tile and firing at high temperatures. The glazing becomes hard and non-porous leaving a surface that is scratch resistant, fire resistant, and easy to clean.

Some ceramic tiles are wall rated only. Other ceramic tiles are suitable for floors or walls. Ceramic tile is not as dense as porcelain, so it is not recommended for outdoor applications but for most residential installations, it is a great option. Ceramic floors are easy to care for. They are durable, resilient and able to withstand any interior application. The hard surface resists scratches and scars, while the glazed or sealed layer rests above the material, protecting it from stains and water. There are occasions when tiles will break, grout lines will start to deteriorate, and the floor will need to be repaired. Luckily, dealing with this is a relatively straightforward process.
