http://www.hgexpo.com/listing/guhde-flooring-america.html Shawn and Monica from Guhde Flooring America in Painesville, Ohio explain the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile. While they might look and feel similar when installed, there are real, substantive differences between the two materials. Porcelain is composed of finer, more densely packed clay that results in a more durable, weatherproof surface.
Learn the key differences between ceramic and porcelain tile and decide which is best for your project. Hardness and durability are very different between tile sold as porcelain versus ceramic. Lesser grades of tile chip more easily and the color is only a glaze on the surface. Make certain you are using the right tile for your application.
