The Benefits of Ceramic Tiles
Ceramic is one of the most versatile architectural resources. You can use it in almost any environment as it naturally resists common problems, such as water damage and staining. It’s also extremely versatile from an aesthetic standpoint, making it easy to complement the overall look when painting walls in your interior.
In this post, Castino Painting and Home Services discusses the benefits of using ceramic tile for your floors and walls.
Higher Water Tolerance
Ceramic tiles are a popular choice for bathrooms and kitchens due to their superior water resistance. Glazed ceramic floor tiles, in particular, have a natural protective layer on top of the material that makes them completely immune to water and stain penetration. This same natural protection allows them to handle high humidity areas. In fact, this is why some homeowners install them over stucco walls.
Ceramic is naturally durable and resilient with a high tolerance to cracking. Properly installed ceramic tiles can last for 20 years or longer if you maintain them well. Additionally, even if your ceramic tiles get damaged or worn down, replacing them is simple as ceramic is a readily available material.
Low-Maintenance Walls and Flooring
Thanks to their natural stain resistance, ceramic tiles are easy to take care of. Since debris and liquids will naturally rest on the surface of the tile instead of penetrating it, you simply need to wipe or mop the ceramic tiles to keep them clean. Ceramic tiles are also strong enough to resist industrial cleaning solutions, making cleaning even easier.
