Advantages & Disadvantages
The primary benefits of ceramic tile flooring are that it is durable, requires little maintenance, and has practically countless product choices available. Ceramic tile can be cleaned easily with a damp towel or a sponge, but it still maintains a very high level of durability. Because it is resistant to humidity and moisture, ceramic tile is especially popular in rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. Not to mention, the design and color choices for ceramic tile are basically endless. Manufacturers usually have access to a large variety of glazes and tile cutter shapes, so ceramic tile leaves a lot of room for customization and adaptation to your personal style.
However, one drawback of ceramic tile’s durability is that it can feel somewhat uncomfortable or hard underfoot. Also, because ceramic tile is so hard, damage will often manifest itself as cracks or chips, which can be tough to fix. It’s also not advised to take on ceramic tile installation as a do-it-yourself project, because installation can be a difficult and intricate process. Luckily, the experts at FCI Vancouver have extensive experience in ceramic tile installation!
We have access to a huge range of colors, styles, shapes, and patterns of ceramic tile, so you’ll surely find a product that fits your project’s specific requirements. Because we have partnerships with leading manufacturers, we are able to offer top brands for wallet-friendly prices.
