Advantages & Disadvantages
The primary benefits of ceramic tile are that it is low-maintenance, sturdy, and the product options are practically endless. Ceramic tile is exceptionally durable, but it can still be cleaned easily using a damp towel or sponge. It is resistant to humidity and moisture, making it very popular in rooms with water exposure such as kitchens and bathrooms. Not to mention, manufacturers can use any color of glaze and style of tile that they want, so ceramic tile leaves a great deal of room for customization and adaptation to your personal style preferences.
However, one drawback of being so sturdy is that ceramic tile can feel somewhat uncomfortable or hard underfoot. Because ceramic tile is so hard, dropping heavy objects on it or other damage will manifest itself as chips and cracks, which can be tough to fix. Additionally, installing ceramic tile by yourself is extremely difficult, so it is recommended that you have a professional perform the installation. Luckily, the experts at FCI Mississauga have extensive experience in ceramic tile installation!
