Tile flooring in a Fort Myers, FL home

What?s the difference between ceramic & porcelain tile?

Nothing matches floor tiles for your Fort Myers?home. They offer many great benefits, such as color, pattern, durability, and extended lifespan. If you want a floor with great versatility, then you?ve made the right choice.


Porcelain and ceramic are very similar in nature and appearance. Some homeowners think that they have bought the same product when they purchase it. But there are some differences between the two. It?s critical that you speak with our staff and learn those differences and see them for yourself.

Porcelain tile

High-quality natural clay is the essence of porcelain. It is fired in a hot kiln to strengthen the density and give it unparalleled hardness. The clay creates a through-body color that hides any chips or cracks that may occur. A clear coat of glaze is placed over it, allowing its beauty to shine through.

Ceramic tile

Feldspar and sand are additional ingredients in the natural clay that makes up ceramic. You still get a dense surface that is very hard, but there is no through-body color to see. These pieces are glass glazed and are colored however you want the tile to look, creating a d?cor matching appearance.
