What Are the Advantages of Porcelain Tiles?

There are many advantages to porcelain tiles. One of the biggest advantages associated with porcelain tiles is their cost. Porcelain tiles are comparable to ceramic tiles and cheaper than natural stone tiles. Another benefit to porcelain tiles is their versatility. They can be used in almost any space, and they can be cut into various shapes and sizes to create different patterns. Lastly, porcelain tile is very durable. It can withstand high wear and tear and still look great.

What Are the Disadvantages of Porcelain Tiles?

The primarily disadvantage to porcelain tiles is their weight. Porcelain tiles are heavy. This makes them more challenging to install, which can increase installation prices. Your sub-floor or wall must also be strong enough to sustain the weight of the tiles. As such, they cannot be used in every situation.
