ABOUT CERAMIC TILE FLOORING
Ceramic Floor Tiles are made from clay, baked in kilns to a high temperature; they are available either glazed or unglazed. Porcelain Tile Flooring is baked at even higher temperatures, producing an extremely hard, moisture-proof tile. The Saltillo tile is a type of ceramic tile, which is made by hand in various sizes and thicknesses; it has a rugged, earthy, texture characteristic of the Mexican and American Southwestern desert landscapes. Factors to consider when choosing ceramic tile flooring include: abrasion resistance, water absorption, freeze or thaw resistance, impact resistance, anti-slip, and cleanability.
