Why is Porcelain Tile flooring considered the most durable?
Are you speculative of what kind of tile to consider for flooring? Do you need a flooring option that not only looks great but is extremely durable as well?
Let’s understand why among the various flooring options available in the market, porcelain tiles might be the best for you.
Porcelain tile is made from a dense type of clay, baked at a high temperature (2,000+ degrees Fahrenheit) for an extensive period. This removes nearly all of the water and makes it very dense and hard. With its treatment in a furnace, it becomes denser and harder than many other building materials, including ceramic tile.
Porcelain tile, in particular, is extremely strong, durable and able to withstand freezing temperatures. Unless they have a polished finish, these tiles are also slipping, scratch and chip resistant.
What benefits come with the durability of porcelain tiles?
Well, porcelain tiles require very low maintenance, especially when compared with natural stone or marble, although they feel like the same. The manufacturing process allows them to become non-porous, and the composition absorbs all the water from it, which makes them a perfect option for moisture driven places.
It requires little-to-no attention other than regular household cleaning. They are also more resistive to scratch and stain and can’t even hold moisture and frost, which again makes them an attractive option for high-traffic areas.

It should come as no surprise now, but porcelain tiles are processed in a way that they can withstand extreme temperature and weather as well. They have a pretty high PEI rating, which means they are the best tiling option in areas that can easily be exposed to harsh weather – think patios or pathways.
To sum up, porcelain tiles are resistant to stain, fade, slip, chip, scratch, moisture and extreme temperatures. On top of that, they are some of the easiest flooring options to clean, maintain, live with and will look brilliant for many years.
Combining their durability, ease of maintenance, and how classy they look. - it’s not hard to understand why porcelain is overshadowing the flooring industry today. Although porcelain tiles are a little expensive, they are certainly a very good investment
