What’s the difference between ceramic tiles and a porcelain tiles?
Ceramic tiles are generally a quicker and cheaper product to manufacture than a porcelain tile. Ceramic tiles do have a place in the industry but Worcester Tile only offer ceramic tiles for wall applications as we believe that porcelain for the floors offers our discerning customers much better value for money without compromising on design. Porcelain tiles are developed by manufacturing finer bisques, finishes and firing methods to produce a substantially stronger tile. Worcester Tile advisers can point you in the right direction depending on your situation.
What are porcelain tiles?
Porcelain Tiles are known for their durability and zero-maintenance qualities which make them a favorite for use in areas that are exposed to heavy wear and tear. Especially when there is an opportunity to use a heavy duty material without having to compromise on aesthetic appeal.
Can I use Porcelain Tiles outside?
Many porcelain tiles supplied by Worcester Tile are frost proof and provide the opportunity to extend your internal choice of tile to the outside. The is becoming hugely popular and we can advise on this when reviewing your project
Can I tile over old tiles, or should I remove them?
Yes you can fix tiles over existing tiling, but this is not straight forward and requires a professional to review the existing substrate. We can advise on this through our Home Consultations.
