With ceramic flooring, you get the look, feel, and strength of natural stone in a tile that is also manufactured to be impervious to moisture penetration. Cleaning can be done by sweeping, vacuuming, or damp mopping the surface, with spot treatments being handled when necessary. You also don’t have to worry about sealing the tiles themselves, although applying a coat to grout lines can help to cut down on the growth of mold.
Ceramic tiles are made primarily from red or white clay mixed with various minerals and water. This composition is then processed with heat to create the solidified product. Since ceramic material is porous, the top surface is usually sealed with a glaze. The glazed surface is referred to as the design layer since it determines the tile’s finished color, design and texture. In other words, ceramic tiles only have the design or color that you see on the top layer, not all the way through the tile.
Ceramic tile is the go-to choice when you need durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean flooring. The inherent strength of the materials means that they won’t break, crack, or chip even when handling the largest of pets. At the same time, the glazed glass layer that is manufactured over the surface makes the otherwise vulnerable fired clay material impervious to water penetration and accident stains.
Brick pavers and stone tiles have a lot of characteristics in common. Brick is a manufactured product, but the ingredients used are mostly natural, consisting of clay and various sediments. Stone, on the other hand, is made completely by the earth, drawn directly from the sides of mountains. However, it does have to be refined down into tiles and slabs for ready architectural use. While these materials do have a lot in common, there are some subtle characteristics that set them apart when used in various environments.
