What is a Rectified Tile?

 

A rectified tile has a sharp/defined edge. The edge is cut with a diamond saw or ground down after the curing process. This is so that the edge will be very straight. The rectified edge allows for the tile to be laid only 1.5mm apart, creating the smallest grout line and a seamless finish.

What is a Ceramic Tile?

 

Ceramic tiles are generally lighter as they are more porous and less dense. This makes them have a higher absorption rate and causes them to be less durable. However they tend to be the cheaper option and easier to cut. Ceramic tiles are not recommended for external areas or areas that will endure higher traffic (kitchen, hallways and commercial applications).

 

What is a Porcelain Tile?

 

Porcelain tiles are denser and impermeable, which makes them a great tile for areas that endure high traffic, also for external areas. However porcelain is typically the more expensive option as they are heavier and more difficult to cut. The highest benefit of porcelain tiles is that they are highly stain resistant, which means that it will repel liquids.

 

What is a Natural Stone Tile?

 

Natural stone, as the name suggest is curated from stone. These tiles are more expensive than ceramic or porcelain tiles as there is more effort put into the manufacturing process. They run the risk of natural wear and tear (chemical discolouration, chipping and scratching) also there will be colour variance, more so than engineered stone. Natural stones for sale are typically; Granite, Marble, Slate, Sandstone, Travertine, Limestone, Onyx and Quartzite.

 

What is an Engineered Stone Tile?

Engineered stone is created by crushing up quartz and mixing with a binding resin, the result is a fairly convincing 'man-made' stone. It can be made to look like various natural stones and is very durable and has a low porosity. Engineered stone is likely to be cheaper, however many people prefer natural stone as it has natural charm and character.

Can mosaics be applied to the floor?
