The craftsmanship and innovation that go into our tile are of the highest quality available. There are many types of tile that we will try and explain here.
Ceramic tile is simply a mixture of clays which have been shaped and fired at high temperatures resulting in a hard body. This hard body may then be left untreated or it may receive a glazed wear layer. To put it a different way, ceramic tile is nothing more than a beautiful piece of clay.
There are typically two kinds of porcelain tile
- Through-Body (Also called unglazed or unpolished). This tile is a porcelain that has not been glazed nor polished and is made of porcelain through and through.
- Glazed. Most porcelain tile has a glazed finish over a porcelain body. Because many natural porcelain tiles have absorption ratings of less than .1%, therefore, more durable and better performance.
