We had a great experience at this store. We bought tiles for our 4 bathrooms, laundry room, pantry, 2 fireplaces and all of our hardwood and vinyl. Prices are reasonable and their customer service is great. Dina was amazing and so friendly! She’s very knowledgeable and she offered so many great suggestions to help with our selection. She’s a gem! We also met the owner Steve and he was also great We’ve recommended this place to all our friends and we’ll continue to do so.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
Really great selection and people. They have good quality and a wide selection that works for all budgets. All their materials are good quality. Yani was incredibly helpful and helped us make some good decisions for our kitchen and washroom renovations. They have a lot more than tiles, including shower and bath systems and hardware. We found a good quality trough drain here too. We are repeat customers and this was the second time sourcing from this fine business.
They were very helpful to us in planning our shower installation. We bought porcelain tiles and a sliding door, both for a very reasonable price. We are considering a pre-fab floor, which is expensive, but promises better performance than the alternative. I would definitely recommend them highly.
Needed builder tile for a 5 year old home (homeowner had only 41 pieces and I needed about 100). Had no idea what tile it was. The team at Ceramic Tile helped me figure out what the tile was, ordered it in and got me working within 1 business day! Thanks guys!
We had a great experience at Ceramic Tile World. Dina was amazing and super helpful. The have a huge selection and they were able to work with our tight timeline. Will definitely go back for future projects.
Very helpful staff, great selection. Dina was great and helped out with design options. Couldn’t be happier, we’d go back for sure. Have kitchen and washroom renovations coming up, we have our tile store.
Knowledgeable staff, family run business, large sample tiles that I could move around to compare different options in the showroom. Got a great deal on some end of stock tiles for a kitchen project and had enough leftover to tile the front hall!
Everyone I’ve dealt with here has made my shopping process enjoyable. They have a great selection of tiles from all the big companies and better prices. Sales staff are willing to work through design ideas with me and can pull out tiles to support my “vision”. Responsive via email, happy to send sample boards home.
What is Porcelain Tile?
Porcelain tiles are made of clay baked at a very high temperature to make them harder and denser than ceramic tiles.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Tile?
Porcelain is durable enough to withstand cleaning agents, stains, scratches, moisture, fading, heavy loads, and fire.
What is a Good Thickness for Porcelain Tile?
The ideal thickness for a tile should be 5/16-inch thick. Make sure to compare the thickness of other tile options when selecting floor tiles. Remember that thick floor tiles can obstruct doors from opening or closing correctly and may result in irregular transitions between rooms.
Does Porcelain Tile Crack Easily?
Hard and densely packed porcelain tiles can withstand heavy loads. In fact, they can be used in commercial areas. However, note that the porcelain tiles’ hardness can make them a bit more brittle than standard tiles, making them prone to cracking.
What Can Damage Porcelain Tile?
Regularly using chemicals that can corrode the tiles’ surface can increase their water absorption and cause damage. That is because the strong chemicals can erode the grout, subsequently loosening the tiles and allowing water to get beneath them and create dampness. To properly clean the porcelain tiles, it is enough only to use warm water and a mop.
Do Porcelain Tiles Need to be Sealed?
Often, ceramic and porcelain tiles do not need sealing. However, sometimes they need a light application of a seeping sealer to fill the tile surface’s micropores. Take note, though, that the cement-based grout joints between the tiles are highly penetrable.
Is Porcelain Tile Good for Bathrooms?
Absolutely. Porcelain tiles are often the number one choice for bathroom floors. Porcelain is a denser, more rigid, and more durable material ideal to ward off stain and water absorption than ceramics. Plus, it suits well with an in-floor heating system to keep your feet warm on cold mornings. No doubt, porcelain offers unrivaled versatility.
Is Porcelain Tile Waterproof?
Porcelain tiles are not water-proof, but they are highly water-resistant. That means that they resist water effectively, but if you submerge them in water long enough, they will eventually absorb it.
Do Porcelain Tiles Stain?
Porcelain is stain-resistant. However, you must wipe the stain away, especially from polished benchtops, as quickly as possible. To ensure that the tiles are not stained with red wine, food, other colored beverages, and other stubborn marks, it is best to use warm water and a soft cloth.
How Long Does Porcelain Tile Last?
Given porcelain’s excellent durability makes it a worthy investment. If you are using porcelain material in your project, rest assured that the products made of it are easy to clean and reliable to last up to 50 years or more!
